This project took a bit longer than anticipated. But again, doesn't it always. I started a long post on what I did...But then I just decided to skip it and just say tada! It's done. I put hardboard up, painted 2 coats, sanded it, then painted another coat...boom! Then I framed it. Then we both … Continue reading Chalkboard Gallery Wall
I know, I know...I'm totally late on the game on this! I think chalkboard walls may have been done to death. But I have not done one, so let's say it is new to me! :) This is the latest photo I have of the dining room. I don't know what I am doing with … Continue reading It’s been done to death…but I’m going to do it anyway!
The best thing happened a few months ago! Jesse turned to me and said, "What house projects would you like to do this spring?" It was like music to my ears!

We toyed with taking a day trip and getting out of town, but Sunday when we woke up it was so cloudy that it didn't seem worth it, and instead opted to make breakfast and have a lazy morning...how many more of those are we going to … Continue reading I LOVE new kitchen appliances!!
One more thing I can cross off my 30 Before Baby List!! Last I shared the photo of our house, it looked like this. I had come home on my lunch break to find the demo had already begun. I was a little in shock second guessing what we were getting ourselves into.Luckily though by … Continue reading The New Siding is Finished!!
I mentioned in my last post that we had a contractor coming by the house...We are residing! Originally I was hoping to reposition the windows AND reside, but it was going to be twice the amount...plus we have to have the house painted on top of that, so instead I am hoping to improve the … Continue reading New Siding is on it’s way!
