Curb Appeal Update – Progress

We have been doing quite a bit of work outside this spring and summer because, well, if we’re being honest, it’s been neglected. We’ve just been trying to keep it tidy the best we can. 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!

Overwhelmed By His Blessings

Soooo, hey there!

It’s been a day or two since I hopped on here to share with you guys!! Ugh! I had no intention of taking a two three month break from blogging 😳 , but I can’t say I hated it. Can you imagine taking that much time off from your job? Even if you love your job? Wouldn’t it be nice to just set it aside and focus on something else for a while. Well, that’s just what I did.

Life got busy, and I mean BIIZZZYYY. And, one day I just came to the realization that something had to give, and to be honest projects and blogging was the only thing that I could actually let drop for a while. So, I did. It’s July now, and things seem to be settled back into some kind of normalcy and I feel like a human again. And, I’m ready to get back at it all! And, bonus! The break really renewed my fire for all of it!!

Today though, I just thought I would take a moment and catch you up. If you follow me on IG (Instagram) or if you’re a friend in real life then you know where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. But, if for some reason you don’t, then I’ll be happy to lay it all out for you! 🙂

Light and Bright Family Room

Hey friends! I’ve been scheming in my head again. And this time about our family room. You know I realized that we have been updating this house one DIY project at a time for three years or so now. I kind of think I’ve forgotten how to just decorate a space. Hahaha 😆 But, now that most of the DIY projects are done I need to turn my attention to some overdue decorating updates. And, I’m starting with our family room.

Side Table Makeover

Oh my goodness you guys!! I actually did a project this last week and it felt so good. It has been way too long, and I needed to DIY something. This little side table in my living room has seen better days. And, I have been scheming an update for a while now. And spring break seemed like the perfect opportunity to get er done. I was so excited that I didn’t even think to take a before picture. (insert face slap) At least I took this after I stripped the top and before I painted! Just imagine the top being black too. 🙂 (please ignore the messy garage in the background…that’s a product of winter too)
