Well hello! Sorry of the lack of posting last night – we were enjoying one of our last evenings of spring break and the time got away from me. We just plain relaxed, and it was awesome after a week of getting MUCH done around here. I love that hubby and I are both homebodies and are perfectly happy to putz around our house all week, organizing, sprucing, mowing…I love it!
Anyhoo, since I’m still in vaca mode (I’ve got one more day with my boys home!), I thought I would share a couple (very) late month in reviews. I didn’t even do February and March almost got away from me.
I know you cry when I don’t do these, so I’m just thinking of you. ;)
I kicked off the love month with a display of my loves on our once-in-a-lifetime trip we took over Thanksgiving:
Then we all partied it up and you all shared nearly 600 (wowza!) projects at the February before and after party.
Next I made some quick and easy Valentines for the Bub to take to school:
Then I showed you my tiny obsession of taking off doors in our house, and how I cover up the hardware holes leftover:
That’s the technical term in case you didn’t know – hardware holes. ;)
We kicked off the basement project by moving some things around, and I found some (wonderful!!) new storage space under the stairs.
Next I figured out a way to use our old island countertop and get some much needed craft storage at the same time:
We partied it up again when you all showed off more than 200 closets and storage spaces in your homes at the February Show Us Your House linky. Awesome organization inspiration!
I shared some of my flower arranging tips:
And then my new favorite room in our house. And it didn’t even have walls. ;)
I added a little something (in the form of a stripe) to our living room drapes and I LOVE how they turned out!:
The framing started in the basement and we started to see the potential for the space:
I had been keeping my eye out for a settee for a long, long time, and finally I found the one when I wasn’t even looking:
Dad and I started the process of building the built-ins for the dining room using kitchen wall cabinets here:
And I shared some of my very favorite Craigslist finds in this post:
I’ve found some beauties!
I shared a bit more about me (and I’m not as weird as I thought, according to some of you!):
Next, you shared your kitchens and it may have been my favorite house party yet! (See 230 inspiring kitchens here!)
I found a couple Goodwill chairs I just couldn’t pass up, and transformed them into a totally fun and funky after:
I shared the lighting layout for the basement in this post, and showed you some of the lights I’m considering for the space. I can’t wait to get the stage where we can actually hang them!!
And we finished up the month with the Spring Fling and hundreds of spray paint projects:
Whew! I need a nap. :)
As always, I hope that maybe a little something I do inspires you in some way!
I hope you and yours have a lovely and blessed Easter!!
