I have finally joined the drum revolution!

Not that I was in any rush... ;)


Our old gal broke!

Now my husband thought this would be just fineanddandy...

I think NOT..

Although I'm gonna miss the old girl and her tricks!

Jesse, aka handyman son, came to my rescue.

My hero~

I found this drum pendant at Lowes for a song.

And with a 10.00 coupon it just sounded sweeter.

Just one problem ...the color was beige


Painted that baby right up..I did.

I used the same bright white on my walls.

Hello darlin'

I'm toying with the idea of adding a ribbon trim or maybe painting something jazzy.

Did I just say jazzy?

You can still see the beige on the inside trim here.

I didn't want to waste my time if I decided to add trim.

Now if only my mix-matched stove would die ;)

Just kidding...maybe.

xoxo Susie~
