While pulling out random weeds from the "patio" last night I turned to Mike (as he was bundling branches) and said "I love that owning a home means that there is always something to do." He agreed- kind of.
We have a few large projects that need to be spaced out over time...
1- Plumbing (possibly need to snake the pipes-hoping this isn't too expensive)
2-Electrical- we need some lighting in the living room and up-to-date/additional outlets upstairs
3-Landscaping- front yard needs to be graded and the backyard needs new plants/garden space
4-Refinish the hardwood floors
So while I continue dreaming about those larger projects (and saving every pretty penny) I've been keeping myself busy with smaller/cheaper distractions like this bathroom organization project:
|Bathroom BEFORE (how did I collect so much stuff?!)|
|AFTER! I used a left over paint sample (still might paint the kitchen this color).|
While painting these lovely flower boxes our friend Sherry stopped by to see the place and she brought us this amazing piece of heaven on earth:
|BEFORE: Homemade parmesan, rosemary, garlic bread|
|AFTER! (Note: this was actually taken the day we found out we got the house...but it should express to you how excited we are about this bread...thanks Sherry!).|
