New Year, New Projects

We've been MIA for awhile. Life has been pretty hectic, specifically with our jobs, so weekends have been for relaxing and a lot of house projects have been put on hold, but the long weekend got us back on our task list and we have a new project to share soon (we're just finishing up one last coat). We also spent the long weekend packing up some holiday decor and washing away some of my Pinterest inspired chalkboard sayings.

Since we've been gone, we have gotten a few things started like installing our new front door!

We still have a ton of work to do like adding a new walkway and step, adding bushes, painting our awning and putting it back up, and getting a new light fixture, but I was just relieved to get this installed before the winter. Ones the snow comes and goes, we'll be ready to install a walkway and make our front yard a little more appealing.

We have a couple of other new projects in the works. We bought some new pieces to renovate, so hopefully we'll share those soon.

What have you been up to? Any exciting projects for the new year?


  1. Yey! You're back! :) Isn't it a little sad having to clean up Christmas decor!

    Your door looks great! I can't wait to see everything all finished! I know it'll look great!

    We just finished some projects which I posted about on my blog-- next up is finishing our office organizing and decorating as well as finishing up a coffee table. We have to stain it. Doesn't it seem like the list never ends?! :)

  2. Can't wait to see more of your projects!! It's slow going on the project front, but once work slows down a bit I'm hoping to do some.

  3. ooo, your home projects are always so cool. i would like to set up a mini home office and create a sort of gallery wall for all our photos/art :)
