Happy Monday!! Who had a fun weekend?! We went to Pensacola for a wedding, and it was a blast! We stopped at a local beach bar to grab a drink and enjoy the view. Below is a photo from the trip for those who don’t have Instagram. :)
Needless to say, we didn’t get much done around the house this weekend, but I’ve been eager to update you on the the things we’ve taken care of in the past couple weeks. You know when you have a To-Do list that seems so overwhelming, you don’t know where to start? When it comes to our home, that’s pretty much how John and I have felt for about a year now. When you can rattle off 10 things that all need to get done, you know your list is extensive. But we’ve slowly but surely been plugging away at it, and it feels so good!
We hadn’t touched the large back deck since we moved in 3 years ago (other than pressure washing). So guess what we did!
We stained that bad boy:
What a huge difference a good pressure washing and a little stain can make. And scroll back up to take a peek at the yard when we moved in versus now! Green grass grow, baby, grow! You can read about revamping the back yard here.
We also replaced all of our disgusting old ceiling fans. Although I’m not a huge ceiling fan lover, they do provide a little break from the crazy Florida heat. We also painted the bottom half of my dressing room (BM Classic Gray #1548) and hung these amazing Anthropologie curtains that my MIL got me for my birthday. You know you’re obsessed with interior design when you start asking for things like curtains instead of handbags and shoes for your birthday. Not that I’m against bags and shoes or anything.
We painted over the stencil in the hallway (BM Classic Gray #1548~ I guess we like this color?!) and painted all the doors and trim bright white. The hallway stencil was fun for awhile, but we were ready for a change. The good thing about stenciling is you can just paint over it! We are still waiting on some of our door hardware, but the brass is gone!
As I mentioned above, we painted all the trim in the hallways, but we also tackled the trim around the french doors and the french doors themselves. The color was cream (yuck!!) and now it’s bright white:
We’re also about to paint the outside of the house! Aahhh! Big project! Our house desperately needs some curb appeal, so we’re going to take the plunge and paint it.
We hope you all have a fantastic week, friends! Do something that makes you smile today.
