Why, you ask?
Because I cashed in part one of this coupon I got from Jon as part of my Christmas present.
The walls used to be the color of dirty water and now they are so so so much better. The color ended up a little lighter than we expected, but a little darker than in the photo. That room doesn't get a ton of light, so it's probably for the best. I'm pretty proud of us considering it was our first time picking paint colors.
Part 2 of the coupon involves painting the treehouse, a.k.a. our den/sewing room. It's going to be yellow. And awesome. I'm excited.
The painting motivated me to get some other organizing done, so I whipped up these mailbag pouches using a pattern in One Yard Wonders. The pattern is only for the big pouch, but I wanted a pouch for both Jon and I so I changed the dimensions and made 2 smaller ones to go with the big one holding coupons and take out menus.
I probably didn't need to use a pattern for this project, but it was really nice to have someone else figure out the dimension and construction instructions.
