But mostly, the time I typically would have spent blogging I have been working on house projects! I was on a roll. Unstoppable. Just ask Brandon! :)
Made a menu board. Loving it! Helps me meal plan and fills an empty space on the wall! :)
I painted a piece of wood with chalkboard paint and used letter stickers for the days of the week.
A little decor to remind my family about having a joyful song in our hearts for
all the things the Lord has done in our lives! I mod podged sheet music onto the glass
of an old window. Then made music notes out of red fabric and hung a small
chalkboard from the window latch.
Turned a picture I took into a little wall art. I mod podged the print onto a piece of wood.
Thank you Katie Euken and Pinterest for this idea! Just in time for company!
I took down a towel rod and hung individual hooks and picture frames with
burlap behind the glass in it's place
Here I took three matching frames I had in the basement, painted them all black, took out the glass, painted
the cardboard background black, used a hot glue gun to attach the little clothespins and voila! A
perfect way to put up a couple pics of the kids. And SUPER easy to switch them out as the
FINALLY painted the barstools black! Sure does take a long time to prime, paint, do another coat, and
finally apply a topcoat to protect them from daily wear and tear!
Next I actually have some pics of the project in process......I made a headboard for Lawson's bed with plywood, some foam, brown fabric, and burlap! I am very happy with the results! I will have to post a picture of it on the wall above Lawson's bed.
And here is an UNFINISHED project. This empty window is at the bottom of the stairs, near the kitchen. I am wanting to turn it into the "chore chart" or daily duties, etc. But I'm not exactly sure what to do. Do I find a way to put a background in that would use magnets? Do I use velcro? How about the little clothespins? Any good ideas from you out there?
I worked on a few other projects that I don't have pictures of, including the landscaping! Brandon and I have been slowly working on the landscaping. And so far, it's turning out pretty good! This is the third house that we have completely overhauled the landscaping and we learn A LOT every time we do it! :) I will have to post a few pictures of our work-in-progress!
Well, there you have it, a glimpse into my world of projects!
