Where did the time go? I looked up and we have been in this house for 2 years! And I still have so much more to do! But here is a little recap of what we have accomplished at home in the past year. It’s out 2 year house anniversary! (You can read our 1 year house anniversary here.) And I still have more goals to accomplish. (I’ve gotta take a better picture of my house!)
First off, let me just say that I feel like I haven’t done much this year. But what I have done makes me happy. And that’s what creating your home is all about, right?
Let’s start with the dining room. I needed a good kick in the pants to do it and the One Room Challenge was the perfect kick. Here is how it started:
And here is how it looked 6 weeks later, and now:
I am still waiting to get blinds in there, but I have my heart set on Plantation shutters and those are pricey! I’m saving my pennies.
I also finished the powder room (finally!). And I love it! I won’t scare you with the before. Here’s the after:
I redecorated the screened porch last spring. It has gone Americana.
And then there’s the mud room/entry area. I’m still working on it, but it is mostly done. The largest task, hand painted “wallpaper”, is done.
My son’s bathroom is almost complete! The last I shared it looked like this:
But after choosing tile and a new vanity, it will be amazing very soon!
My daughter wants to know when I’m doing her bathroom, even though I just completed her room…. for now.
I still have plenty more projects up my sleeve, but one thing at a time.
