Things are about to start happening!

We’re about to make some big changes to our house in the coming weeks!

We’ve tackled some smaller things-

We covered the darrrrkkkk brown with a nice, not too bright, white. (White Gallery at Lowe’s)

Painted the foyer (that’s almost done…just need to get up on a ladder and paint the dumb ceiling. Whyyyy do people paint ceilings tan?)

Painted the living room

Hung ceiling fans in the bedrooms

But now…we’re moving on to the big stuff!

We’re ordering cabinets for the kitchen renovation TODAY! I’ve got a post on our new kitchen floor plan coming up on Monday.

We’ve bought unfinished hardwood for the living room that we’d like to get installed, stained, and finished before we start on the kitchen…we kind of need to do it because the new kitchen will jussst go over into the current living room.

We’re picking out tile today to use for the fireplace surround. We’ve got a few ideas about how we want to put the space back together..

We’re thinking we need cabinets to help corral all of our baby toys.

We’ve got some odd dimensions (45in wide and 14 in depth) so Phil is going to build the base cabinets for the shelves.


It’s feeling exciting to take big steps!

We like the look of shelves going all the way to the ceiling- I think it helps to make the room feel bigger.
