Projects and a bee sting

I had just gotten home from Costco and I was trying to get things put away in the garage and all of a sudden Carter screams and grabs his head and falls to the ground crying! I thought maybe his ear drum had popped or something! I ran to him to pick him up and I noticed a dead bee on the ground next to him then I saw the stinger on his finger. He cried for a whole hour off and on. It's been over a week since it happened and this is what it looks like still. Its really blurry sorry!.

Before: I found this mirror at Goodwill
My dad made the bench below!!

I found these end tables and coffee table at an antique store down town. They were pretty beat up but they were made really well so I knew I (with the help of my dad) could fix them. they started out all wood. I stripped them and then my dad painted and distressed them. They came out awesome I think.

I found this chandelier at Good will for $10 it was a weird rusty color. I brought it home and spray painted it and it looks brand new.

Update on the Kitchen~ It's been textured and painted

and now it looks like this. The chalk board was a find at the same antique store down town.

Our Toilet upstairs overflowed and came through the ceiling into the downstairs bathroom that we were going to redo any way. here are some before and afters.

this is Upstairs you can see the water on the carpet. It went all the way into Carter and Lucy's rooms
This is what the bathroom looked like
We started taking off the wallpaper and then the flood happened

They had to take out the ceiling and dry it out with fans and heat for like a week. The flood really wasn't that bad but the guy that came and ripped everything out apparently thought it was. Or he was just trying to get more money from the insurance.

I still have to put stuff on the walls but you get the idea
