I moved into my house a year ago. I feel so blessed every day, we absolutely love our house and have had a blast making it our own. Most of these projects I have shown you readers but I wanted to do a 'looking back' post.
The kid's rooms were a lot of fun. In my little girls room, I have made curtains, painted one wall pink and have painted a tree. As for the quilt . . . sadly this was one of the first projects I worked on when we moved in but it still hasn't been bound. Did I really just admit that?
My little guys room has a wood wall art and I also painted truck stencils going along the top of the wall.
The entry, I have made frames (tutorial next week), painted a mirror frame and re-finished the banister. My favorite piece that I have done thus far is my wood wall art and still find myself stopping to look at it while passing.
I painted all my cupboards in the kitchen and should have new counter tops by Thanksgiving, yay!! I have re-finished a piece of furniture for my pantry and a matching side table for the kitchen as well. I also did a mirror and wall stencil.
My living room: A couple plans are in the works to finish it all up but I am really happy with the way it is coming together. I have my book nook, re-finished couch, picture ladder, a re-finished trunk and two re-finished chairs.
I hope I am not the only one but I have quite the pile of things that aren't quite finished. I have broken a piece, found something I liked better or just haven't picked it back up. For whatever reason, I have quite the list of things I need to finish. Maybe 2012 will be a finishing year.
|Left: Broke the swinging door while trying to add new bead board. Right: Need molding on doors but just shortly after starting I found these Farm House Pantry Doors and want them more than what I have started.|
Added to the not quite finished items is our play house. My husband made up the plans and we had a great time putting it together this past spring. We had kids in and out of it all summer. One of those 100% worth the time and money projects.
Well, those are most of the house projects. I have a gazillion things I still want to do, re-finish the bathroom, make a better office, craft and laundry room. Even do something with the toy room. The great thing is that I get year two and I get to share those good times with you as I make things happen.
