We didn't do many house project in November and December, but we are ready to gear up again. We looked at our budget and came up with our project list for January-June.
In January, Sam bought a chainsaw and has started clearing out our backyard. There are lots of overgrown bushes/trees growing along the fence line. Sam is about half way finished with the fence line and he also wants to cut down 2 small trees around our deck.
Sam decided to build a console table in January. He got some fancy new tools for Christmas and needed a practice project. The vertical pieces used to be the closet doors in my craft room.
Back in November, I ordered a loveseat from West Elm, and it finally arrived in January! Finn doesn't like our green sofa and never sits on it (I have no idea why), but he loves the new loveseat! Almost every night Finn and I snuggle on the loveseat and watch TV.
On our original project list, we planned to paint the kitchen cabinets this month, but we failed to factor in the weather. Whoops! It's too cold right now to paint in our garage, so we've decided to start on our bedroom instead.
We really wanted to paint our bedroom before moving in the house, but other projects took precedence. We're planning to scrape the ceiling, remove the chair rail, and paint all the trim white.
We're painting the walls Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore.
We'll be replacing the ceiling fan with this one from Home Depot.
Starting this weekend, we'll be moving everything out of our bedroom and temporarily moving into the guest room. I can't wait to get started!
