August 2018 in Review

I’m not sure how it’s possible that August is almost over! September is right around the corner. I have definitely reached that point in the summer when I am done with the hot weather and I’m ready for fall. How about you?? I haven’t done a monthly round-up in a while. Mostly because I haven’t been blogging a lot in a while, but I thought it would be a great idea this month! So, here ya go! In case you missed something here at frazzled JOY this month!

Another Furniture Makeover – The Kitchen Table

Hey there! So, I have to be honest, I feel like I am jumping the gun sharing this space with you. Considering the tile debacle that we’ve been dealing with. If you don’t know what I’m talking about (shared on Insta) – we had a couple of tiles in our kitchen randomly buckle up last week. We have no idea why – maybe a small earthquake that we experienced that day – who knows. The problem was, when we tried to get the tiles back down, one broke and the other one wouldn’t fit back in it’s place. We’ve had several tiles start to crack lately, so re-tiling was definitely on the list, just not the top of the list, I mean hello, we are in the middle of a ton of outside projects right now. No time to tile. But, alas, we didn’t want this to be a tripping hazard so to the top of the list it went. More about that later when we get it done!! Today, let’s focus on this table.

But, this year we could wait no longer. Lots of little things have gotten done – maintenance type things – over the past couple of weeks. However, before that we did some serious work that I haven’t showed here yet. We are nowhere near done, but progress is good friends! Just for a reminder this is where we started a year ago. 🙂

How To Dress Up Plain Interior Doors

Hey friends! Back in April I got a wild hair and decided to paint our interior doors! I say “a wild hair”, but this is something that I have been thinking about for quite a while. I recently brightened the whole hallway by basically painting everything white. Before that, it was just such a dark and gloomy space, even in the daytime. So, I think that although I loved the idea of painted interior doors, I was afraid that it would make the space dark again. But then I saw a space that Joanna did, of course, with light gray interior doors, and I was sold!
