I’m trying to wrap up any loose ends I have right now as far as the blog goes so I can maybe-possibly-probablynotbutIcantryto get more organized. So what you’re about to get is a whole lot of “Remember when? Well this is where we are now” type of stuff. Got it? Okay, here we go.
Let’s start with that time I hinted about getting new interior doors. Oh, you don’t remember that? Yeah, I don’t blame you – it was a long time ago. As much as I loved those brown plank doors, I wanted to get rid of them even more. We probably could have added some trim to them and painted them all instead of replacing them but in the end we decided they just had to go. We wanted something with a little interest but not too over the top so we went with these bad boys. They still need to be painted but here is one in action:
Ahhhhh, much better than the brown.
Moving on. How about that time I mentioned that we finished our kitchen drawers but then never showed them to you? To be fair, this project kind of burned us out and I didn’t even want to look at the drawers any more, let alone talk about them. Wanna see?
Next up in the kitchen is the great tile project of 2013. We’re thinking a classic white subway tile with a medium or dark gray grout.
Okay now, do you remember when I showed off my art skills with a drawing of our front porch plan? Well, there’s not much to show because right now it’s looking really rough. We still need to get our second topiary and I think we want to change up the planters we have now. The biggest thing we need to do is power wash and sand the porch and figure out what stain we want to use because that peeling paint is just not doing it for me if ya know what I mean. As embarrassing as it is, this is what our porch looks like right now:
Ugh. So. Nasty. One power wash coming right up!
How’s about that random post about trim? Yep, nothing has happened on this front and it won’t for a while. We’ve got a bunch of projects we want done within the next few weeks and this one is not one of them.
Last but not least, there was that time I talked about the dining room light saga. We still don’t have a solution for turning the light off and on (unless you can call unscrewing/screwing in the light bulbs a solution) but I’ll at least show you what she looks like:
Those are the only aluminum mini blinds that I haven’t had ripped out of the downstairs yet – their time is coming soon but for now we still need them there to block the killer evening sun when we have dins.
So that’s where we are as of right now. Later this week, I’ll have Kyle’s tutorial for our DIY Wood and Pipe Coffee Table and maybe even a surprise or two…
