I’ve finally recuperated from the kitchen tiling job enough to share it with you! Haha! But, seriously, it was a much bigger job than I anticipated. It’s done though, and I LOVE it!! 🙂
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. 🙂
I’m super pumped to share this with y’all. I was going to wait until after Christmas, but I just couldn’t. We actually finished the project right before Thanksgiving, but by then all things Christmas had already landed here. So, I waited. But, I just couldn’t wait any longer!! What am I talking about?? Well, we finally got around to updating the tile in our kids/guest shower!! Did y’all catch the sneak peek in my Christmas home tour??
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.
- On Monday, I decided to clean-up and declutter my laundry room. So, as I started to throw things away, and clean – really clean, I got an itch to paint. I cleared everything out and this is where I started.I had removed the doors on the cabinets a couple of years ago, and painted the inside of the cabinets this fun turquoise color. Lately I have been craving some navy blue in my house, and just so happens that I had some leftover navy blue paint from one of the boys’ rooms. Yippee!! Free!!I painted all the parts of the cabinets that were still wood. After that I stood back and checked it out.Too. Many. Colors. The yellow had to go. I again wanted to use what I had so my choices to keep it neutral were a tan/beige or an antique white (which is mostly white). I decided to go with the white because I didn’t want any more color in there at all. As I painted I just couldn’t stop. Why not go ahead and paint the trim…and the doors? 🙂I had these baskets from the first make-over when I took the doors off and painted the inside of the cabinets. But….I had never labeled them. What I have found in trying to organize my home – if the baskets aren’t labeled then all kinds of things end up in the baskets and the organization doesn’t work.So, I made some cute labels for the baskets – again all with supplies I had on hand. Two days of work later and I am so happy with the results, I just want to spend all my time doing laundry. 🙂Oh and if you are wondering how I got all this done in two days??? It is a very small space and I had this as my motivation…well…all the stuff in the laundry room had to go somewhere 🙂Here’s a before and after for your viewing pleasure.
So thankful the yellow glow is gone. I still have a few details in mind to add to make it fun along with functional, but I have a couple of youngens to get ready for camp. Maybe by the end of the week I’ll be able to share those with you. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!!! Love it!! Blessings to you 🙂
