Piano Bench

A while ago, I found an old piano bench on craigslist. I had plans for making it over, but it ended up sitting for quite some time before my husband sweetly offered to paint it for me (I was pregnant at the time and didn't want to be around all the fumes). While Patrick painted the bench, I re-upholstered the cushion using a burlap coffee bag. Here is the bench before:

And here it is after:

At the time, I had it in our living room. However, I have recently added a different piece of made-over furniture to that space, so the bench has been relocated to our entryway. Here is how it looked when it was in our living room:

I am quite happy with our little find and makeover! 

On a different note, I am thinking of making some changes to this here blog. Since becoming a new mama, I just haven't had the same amount of time to devote to the little house projects I used to dabble in, so I am considering making my blog more general. I would love to include the other aspects of my life, so that it is not just about decorating, but anything new that is going on here in our home. I'm going to be brainstorming some ideas in the next little bit, but I'll let you know what will be going on!

Parker James MacGibbon!

Our sweet, baby boy was born on January 13th at 3:04 pm. He weighed 9lbs. 5oz. and was 52 cm long! We love him more than words can say!

Today he is 2 months old and weighs almost 14 pounds! I can't believe how fast the time has gone! The above pictures are from when he was about 2 weeks old. Below are some pics from his first few days:

And here are a few more recent pictures:

Every day he is becoming more interactive. It is so fun to watch him learn and grow! I couldn't be happier to be a Mother! And now, we get to wait for the arrival of Parker's cousin in June. We're getting very excited!
