Since we moved in this past summer, we have been relentlessly making over our new home.
The first few weeks in our home were spent painting everything in sight! We painted walls, trim, wainscoting, cabinets…
Then we fenced in our yard, planted 13 trees and shrubs, and tilled up most of it to make it level.. now we pray they will stay healthy and grow big! The next phase of our yard plan is to plant grass this spring, build a patio and pergola, and put in a vegetable garden.
We also managed to painted our bonus room before Thanksgiving and are well on our way to making it a zen mediation/yoga retreat with a small office area. (I wish I had taken the After photos during the day for comparison; the walls are truly more creamy than yellow, but oh well!) Eventually, we will replace the carpet and get around to organizing the decorations.
Our next big project is installing new laminate hard wood floors on our first level. We hope to have this finished before New Year’s day! We’ll be busy bees over the holidays. 🙂
