Projects


You know how one project begets another project? Well, that's where I'm at now. We got a new washer and dryer (Merry Christmas to us). Since the old ones were coming out and all the shelving, I decided that I wanted to paint the room. The one on the right is the new color.




I now have a PANTRY!!!!!!


I LOVE this new set-up! It's really clearing up room in my kitchen. I have a lot more organizing to do today, but it's going to make SUCH a difference.

When I bought paint for the utility room, I decided to do our bathroom as well since this paint was REALLY on sale. Well, we painted the trim in the utility room white (it was a two toned cream/white disaster). Once I did that, I decided that while I was at it, I would paint the rest of the trim in the house white...because it's also the funky half-toned stuff. I've never liked it, but I've also never done anything about it...until now. I might as well. The paint is already out.

So, I've pretty much got the next few weeks planned in project mode. Winter time means projects indoors. Dave and I tend to find lots of new things to "work" on inside during the winter.

Truthfully, this is a great Christmas present. I LOVE having a pantry now.

How fun! I'm always excited to have more storage space ;)
I have to say I've thought alot about you guys since we've been here....the waiting and not knowing what exactly is going on....BUT we are believing that a healing has already begun in his little body even if we can't see it. THank you for the prayers.
