We need a little something for this wall between the kitchen and family room:
We could go the frame route and do a bit of a gallery wall. I really like the vegetable prints from Crate and Barrel, but they are a bit pricey.
Or this carved wood panel from the one and only, Target.
Or, go the DIY route and try something a little more out there like this EAT Penny Art.
Or maybe a chalkboard?!
And then there this art from OneKingsLane that reminds me so much of my wedding bouquet:
After a birthday celebratory brunch with the family, Matt and I decided to go catch a matinée movie at 1pm out in the burbs. But, it was sold out! Say what!? Guess that’s what happens out west. So we treated ourselves to some froyo (it’s above freezing today so it seemed necessary) then headed home to conquer the garage!
With $18 dollars and fifteen minutes of time, we changed some of our curb appeal. I don’t think I love it, but it’s a good change for now.
We’ve been shopping for window hardware and curtains in our basement. It’s cold down in Matt’s man cave, so we purchased thermal insulated curtains. They arrive at the end of the month!
We’ve been spending lots of time at Lowes! Matt has dream plans for finishing part of the basement and those handymen are oh so helpful!
I removed the stability handle from our bathroom. We aren’t quite at that age yet. I’m still working on caulking, sanding, and repainting. And I’m super thankful the previous owners were well organized and have the extra master bath paint easily labeled!
Since we liked the fresh white look in the guest bath, we repeated the look in the master!
I forgot to take a before picture, but here it is with some of the cabinets removed.
And here it is all fresh and clean!
Definitely still some work to do, but it’s a step in the right direction!
In the meantime, we’re working on framing the guest bath mirror and painting the grout white!
Matt measuring and cutting in our FREEZING basement:
And some grout paint in progress. It looks iffy in these pictures, but it’s looking way better with two coats of paint and freshly cleaned:
