Steamy Days of Summer

Seattle thermostats crept up near 90 degrees this weekend so we decided to go to the lake. It wasn't temperate there either but at least there was cool water to jump into when the heat was too much to bear. We returned to a home that wasn't too hot inside thanks to our passive cooling techniques (blinds).

Justin managed to muster up enough energy to do a couple of small projects around the house: installing a stainless steel backspash behind the range and installing a mini-blind in a closet. Let me wow you with photos of both finished products.

Our sleek new backsplash: step 1 of our kitchen backsplash project.

Mini-blind in the closet, bumped out a little by the closet shelf.
