Now that I finished my media certification degree (that's a fancy word made up by universities to make you pay more for a degree to be a librarian) Which, by the way was so worth it in the end. I have time for all those craft projects and blogging that I have missed so much.
Here's the two second update on the changes since my last post: Sold the house we built, Bought another one in the same neighborhood, (We miss the marsh and water!), finished my certification, looking for a job!
Yes, we sold the beautiful house we built and move to yet another house in the same neighborhood. I know you are now rolling yours eyes in consternation at me. Well, join the club! Our friends and family expect it from us by now.
I have been so busy with school and family that the only crafty things I have accomplished are painting, lots of painting! Cabinets, breakfast table, all the walls in the "new" house, dressers etc. "Why so much painting?" you ask. Because painting is cheaper than therapy and I hate running.
We have made so many changes in the last year: cabinets in laundry room, leveled the back yard, added a play set, painted every wall in the house, in the process of painting all the cabinets in the house, tiled the back splash, built and installed a porch swing (Thank you David, Your so good to me!), painted the closet shelves in the master (which is massive!) and, added a sewing table/desk in guest bedroom. I feel like I am leaving something out... oh yes, painted the front door.
So to begin blogging again I thought I would start at the front door and say welcome to our (newly painted) home!
The first thing I did was paint the wooden front door... Gasp! Yes, I painted over wood. It was either; strip, sand, and refinish the old door or..... two coats of paint and be done. You know what I picked, right? Paint it!!! I like the contrast the black has with the brick. The wood blended in and made the front boring. But you painted it boring black! Well, black was a compromise with my "I love natural wood husband." We are currently in negotiations to paint it navy blue this spring but so far no agreement has been made at this time. I will keep you posted.
Here is the before picture.
In future post I will share picture of all the projects we have completed over the last year. Thank for visiting. Come again soon!
