Time for another Home Improvement update!
If you’re interested, here are the links to my previous Home Improvement posts:
I don’t have a current photo to share, but we finally got rid of the old curtain rods and ugly brown fabric! We have proper blinds now, like the rest of the house. Woohoo!
This is an older photo, but we took down the old brackets above the big picture window. We went to Lowe’s and picked out fancy silver curtain rods, and coordinating / complementary curtains. The pattern is so pretty!
Since this photo was taken, Al bought two more panels so we close the curtains if we want to.
I took this photo on April 12th.
Al’s dad was delivering the custom doll cabinet and wardrobe, so I needed to clear the space!
Delivery day: April 14th. It’s so beautiful!
On the left, Stephanie is the American Girl doll I’ve had since I was nine years old. She’s 20 now! And Molly was my dream doll. I bought her in 2013.
All six dolls! Left to right: Stephanie (American Girl of Today), Molly (Historical, 1944), Kit (Historical, 1934), Autumn (American Girl of Today), Chrissa (Girl of the Year, 2009), and Z (Contemporary Character, 2017).
The double-sided shoe rack still has room!
One Saturday, I was feeling super stressed and anxious about a lot of things. I went into my Lady Lounge, picked a different outfit for each doll, and re-dressed them. When I was done, I felt so much calmer and relaxed.
Molly is wearing the American Girl of Today Play Outfit from 1998. Kit is wearing the Beachside Outfit, first released in 2003.
Stephanie is wearing one of my all-time favorites, the Earth Day Outfit, which was released in 1996.
Autumn is wearing the Birthday Outfit from 1998. Chrissa is sporting the Picnic Outfit from 1998. Z is wearing one of her own outfits, Z’s Sightseeing Outfit from 2017.
Have you made any home improvements recently? I’d love to hear about it!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
WOW! That cabinet is amazing! Did Al’s Dad make it himself? It’s perfect! Heck, it’s nicer than some of the wardrobes I’ve seen for people.
Thank you so much! Yes, he did. It is amazing. He’s so talented!
You’re so welcome! Did you work with him designing it? I mean, it’s just everything you wanted!
He really is incredibly talented! He should start a business!! :-O
I was involved with the initial design, but the end result blew me away!
I told him he could make good money building these, but he just smiled and said, “Well, we didn’t have any daughters, so we wanted to do this for you.”
Awww!!! That’s so sweet!!
Seriously, he could make good money. Then again, he’d have to put up with a lot of demanding, never-satisfied, & cheap customers. Maybe doing it on a rare occasion for a loved one is the best way to go!
Thanks! I’m very fortunate.
You’re welcome. You really are very fortunate & I’m sure you appreciate it. 🙂
