House Projects and 101 in 1,001 Update
House projects are in full swing around here – instead of spring cleaning we have been doing house improvements! It’s addicting seeing the house change. I didn’t think I would like it this much, but it’s been really fun!
First up – our main floor bathroom. It’s this dark purple color. I’m not the biggest fan because it makes an already small bathroom look smaller. I didn’t want to paint the whole bathroom, and I didn’t want to wallpaper because both options would have required too much effort. There are a few too many things to work around – door, mirror, window, toilet, sink, etc. So I opted for a stencil. I found one on Etsy – and I wanted to use two different colors. White and the Teal color from our shower curtain hooks.
…And for the grand finale – our kitchen!! Here’s the before shot… that was all the counter top space I had.
Here’s the after shot. We swung it out three and a half feet from the wall which gives me what feels like DOUBLE the counter space.
Things left to-do in the kitchen:
1. Paint – I’m going to let a professional handle it, because well, I don’t feel like it.
2. Back splash
3. Swap out the pot rack – we have a beautiful one we got as a wedding gift, but I want to wait until the walls have been re-painted to hang it.
