Haven’t done one of these for a while. So here we go. Finish up my lamp redo (so I can show you of course!) Here’s the before.
Rake up all the moss I just sprayed and killed in the backyard today. I’m afraid I’m going to discover that there’s a lot less actual lawn back there than I thought, once all the green moss is gone!
Empty and clean out our old fridge so I can sell it. Make a set of cards for when I need one. I also need to work on my project for my day of the Make the Cut blog hop.
As far as the kitchen goes, we’re really just waiting for cabinets on Friday. We do need to buy and paint some baseboards and door trim though, because those can go in as soon as the cabinets are installed.
Well, I’m finally feeling better. Spring Break plagued me with a cold and wicked cough, but now the kids are back in school and I’ve been sleeping better, so things are getting back to normal.
More progress has been made on tearing down the kitchen ceiling. We purchased all our new appliances last night (yay 15% off sale at Lowe’s!) Then in just a couple of days we’ll have some help here to fix up the ceiling and replace the window, sliding glass door and door leading to the garage. That’s when I’ll get to do some marathon painting.
Here is the old door to the garage. That heater will be replaced too–and good thing. It stopped working a few weeks ago. We came home from church and noticed a burning smell, and after checking all the rooms in the house, discovered that the fan had broken, but the element was still heating up. Thanks for not burning our house down little heater! Also, note the art work hanging by the door. Compliments of my 5-year-old.
I also picked up this fun tray from Goodwill a while back, so it will become a project this week.
Laundry sign for my laundry space in the garage. I have my own phrase in mind, but I like the font in this one from Becky Ann Designs
And I absolutely must do a couple of scrapbook pages. I always drool over the work done by Gabrielle at Such a Pretty Mess, but it would take me so long! So I’ve decided to just take some element and work it into one of my pages this week.
What are the odds that I’ll work on all of these before I try this again next week? I don’t know, but won’t it be fun to see?
