Today's projects

I cleaned out the mud room and painted it. Then I hung new hooks and some decor. I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I've been eyeing some metal baskets from The Container Store to line the top and the shelves.  

I also cleaned up the nook or as we call it, the dining room.  I have to thank my amazing boyfriend for the beautiful roses.  We are still debating on a rug. We have a boy who still gets half his food on the floor vs possible scratches on the floor.  We also need to get some curtains. 

The difficult part of the day was putting up AJ's giant fathead all by myself.  It was no easy task.  His room is now ready for his homecoming tomorrow.

 Oh! And I put up our lot sign!

My projects tomorrow are painting stripes in the powder room and painting the master bedroom. Cleaning up the house and tackling boxes with whatever time I have left in the day. 

We've been putting together a list for our 60 day. So far we have three items.  Not too shabby if you ask me. It really is a well built house. 

The flooring trim at the top of the stairs needs to be nailed down. It's very loose.  

The toilet in the powder room needs to be tightened down and caulked around the bottom. Somehow this was missed by all of us. I didn't think to sit down on the toilets during our walk-through lol. 

There is a missing piece of flooring trim under the sliding glass door. I didn't notice until I was putting the drop cloth in place and a metal piece jabbed me. I think they removed it when they had to fix our flooring and never put it back. 


  1. I love what you have done in and outside your home. Your blog has been such an inspiration. Please continue to keep us that are going through this process inspired.

  2. Looks great! Very great job on all the painting and things came together nicely! I was just talking to another blogger, Ebbie, about the "sold" signs and how we plan to incorporate in the decor! Awesome!!!
