Hey there! I hope your week is going well so far! Have you ever been in a place where you look at something and you’re just tired of it? It’s been fine for forever, but today, not so much. Ya, that’s kind of where I’ve been with the curb appeal, or rather lack there of, of our home. We have been working hard on the inside for a while now, but the outside has been pretty much ignored. Kept up, but not changed.
Hey friends! Happy Monday! My kids are back in school (all but the big one who’s here for two more weeks 😉 ). That means more time for projects and blogging! Have you missed me? I’ve missed you!
I shared my craft closet with you a little while back, and my plans to improve it and organize it in a way that would not require a regularly scheduled clean-out. 😳 Here is the condition of the closet after the last operation organization.
So, several months ago I got a crazy idea to paint the doors in my hallway. Honestly I was bored one day and I already had the paint, so why not.
However, sometimes I’m not in the mood to do paint projects like this one because they are quite time consuming. And, I got interrupted by a more pressing project, the entryway. But then, Christmas hit and again I didn’t feel like finishing the doors. But then, the ultimate motivator, we were having company (other than family – cuz they know how the project thing goes for me). So, I was determined to finish the doors, or at least get them to a point that looked somewhat finished. And, here ya go!!
I’m telling you the amount of light the white paint provides still amazes me. I love it!! It seems so much more seamless when I look down the hall now. The stained wood just seemed to break up things. so. much.
As you might be able to see, I still need to paint the linen cabinets, and the baseboards. What you can’t see is the last door at the other end of the hall that isn’t done ;), and the fact that you can’t see it is exactly the reason why it didn’t get done!!
Well…today as I was covering these in white
God was covering everything in white. The most beautiful ginormous flakes fell from the sky today.
The boys couldn’t wait to get outside and play when they got home from school. This is the fruit of their labor.
Of course there was also some snowball throwing. 🙂 This momma is really hoping we have school tomorrow. Please roads don’t freeze.
I took some time to do a little work on the blog design. I will say it is a work in progress, and will probably change again. Hope you like it.
Oh and…we got a puppy. His name is Ranger.
Isn’t he the cutest?!?
