Happy Holidays from F2F!

We here at F2F hope that each of you had a wonderful holiday celebration whether it be Christmas as we celebrate, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Festivus – holidays are all about good food, good times, friends and family.

Typically Christmas time is a whirlwind of family events for us; one year I had 5 Christmas celebrations in one day! (Spread over about 200 miles…)  Did someone say bring you buffet pants?!

This year however was different.  This year our family celebration consisted of Micheal, myself, and three kitties.  It was definitely a laid-back, albeit quiet, Christmas Day spent eating good food, opening presents, seeing family via the miracles of the internet, and of course…home renovations.  Take a day off?  Nah…we’ve got plenty to get done!

Micheal worked on finishing our buffet project, a pretty standard piece of IKEA furniture that we picked up off of Craigslist for FREE (!!) last month.



We decided to punch it up a little bit with Glidden’s Wild Truffle as the main paint color and then painted the inset of the cabinet doors a darker merlot color and added some new hardware.  The fabulous before and after pics will be posted on Tuesday!

Over the past few days I’ve tackled my office which had become a dumping ground for all things random that I didn’t want to find a place for and Micheal began working on the bedroom ceiling by sanding down the old nasty paint and saying goodbye to the beautiful glow-in-the-dark stars.

With some extra time over the next few weeks I’m really hoping that we can make some progress on the house and maybe there need to be a few New Years Resolutions about making progress!
