We Installed a "New" Ceiling!

Last weekend, we did another home project that took all afternoon, but it was worth it.
Tom is always looking for new, cool ways to make the house look better inside and out, and came across a wallpaper for the CEILING that looks like floorboards. He found it on-line and we installed it on our Kitchen ceiling on Sunday, Sept. 26th. It took about 3-4 hours.The most difficult parts were cutting it correctly (which Tom did) and making sure it stayed up!  Of course, when you're putting up wall paper on the ceiling, all parts of it want to come off - so it took 2 of us to do it. Tom would line it up while I propped up the other end near the ceiling. Lining up the next piece was also somewhat of a challenge.
  The end result, however, was well worth it. What do you think?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
