wallpaper + file cabinet = fun file cabinet

well, i got a file cabinet from a resale shop down the street, because we really wanted a BIG file cabinet. we have lots of little box ones, so when i saw one for $20 bucks, i got it! i was going to spray paint it, but then i saw this fun looking project on a i tried it out. you can use any paper, but it used vintage wallpaper i found on ebay. i really like the way it looks! and it only took a few hours, with help from some small assistants!

i LOVE having a yard!!

We have set up a fun little playzone in the backyard and it is so much fun. What a difference from having been in a 1bedroom apartment! I can't imagine what we would be doing if we still lived there. Probably the same thing, but just on our balcony...or at the park. But phew, it is so nice to have some space. Greta from next door comes over and Virginia (her mom) and I can just hang out and talk while they play. I'm calling it Baby Woodstock(because there is a lot of naked frolicking), but Mike says it's more like Burning Man...either way we are just dorky trying to come up with a name for it. But it's fun!
