Lately I have been in full nesting mode in our house. We have been getting so many projects done, small and large. It feels great to get them done but it also makes my list just keep growing somehow and the projects seem to get larger. Many of which are long term projects that we won’t even tackle any time soon.
We painted the baby’s room. I chose to go with grey on two walls and white on the other two. It gives the room dimension but keeps it light and will allow all of our decor to really shine through. I am excited to start getting the bigger furniture items and begin to put her room together a little at a time.
We also painted our master bedroom. It was a tan color and just was dingy so we used the same grey and did a navy blue accent wall, we love the way it turned out and it really lightened the room.
Our landscaping got a refresh by pulling out a lot of plants that the previous owner had just over planted in many areas so nothing looked great, new mulch, new edging, leaves removed and bushes trimmed. It really does look 100% better and our curb appeal is upped.
I also took a day to scrub all of the doors in the house. This may sound silly but they look so much better. The oil from our hands, dirt, dust and dog hair really do build up on the doors and trim before you know it. After doing this the doors & trim really look so much better and brighter. I also spot cleaned the walls which makes a huge difference if your paint is looking dingy and you don’t want to repaint everything in your house.
I have also done little things like hang up some items that have just been sitting around, put up new outlet covers and deep cleaned our bedrooms.
There are still more projects that are upcoming but I feel really good about where we are and where things are headed.
