I have a bunch of big projects in the works right now and thought today was a good time to give you guys some updates.
PARENTS’ FAMILY ROOM MAKEOVER
This past weekend I finished a family room makeover in my parents’ house… well, it’s 95% complete. I had planned on showing you guys that room today but I still need to find one key piece of furniture: a corner TV cabinet. I really want to find one to paint, but haven’t been able to locate one on Craigslist or Goodwill. Keep your fingers crossed for me this next week. I really, really want to show this room to you guys. It’s one of my favorite before & afters! Ok, here’s one little sneak peek…
MASTER BEDROOM MAKEOVER
I’m at the 90 yard line with this one too. I gave you guys a sneak peek with the paint color, now I’m just putting together the finishing touches. I’m waiting on our mirror to get delivered, need to hang 2 other things plus the chandelier, and that’s about it. Oh so close! Luckily the mirror should arrive in a week or two and then it’s a quick dash into to the end zone.
BUTLER’S PANTRY UPDATES
Last time you saw my butler’s pantry I added some fabric panels to the backss. Well, now I’ve decided to go in a different direction. I think I’m going to paint the backs the same blue charcoal gray color that is on my foyer front door and sun room (which is right across from my butler’s pantry). Then I’m going to store my white stoneware and extra dishes in here.
I also need to finish the backsplash in this area next weekend and find a chair to reupholster for the desk area.
ELLIE’S BEDROOM UPDATES
Yeah, this one is taking longer than expected. Her room is so oddly shaped (really long and narrow plus an odd window) that I was having trouble with the furniture configuration once we hung her new curtains that she stole from my craft room. The chest just doesn’t fit now that there’s long curtain panels at that back window.
Ellie’s also in desperate need of a new bed so I’m thinking a daybed might be ideal for the room. I’m also trying to infuse more color and pattern into the space, as per her request. I’m definitely taking it day by day with this project, but at least it’s on my radar.
So 4 big spaces that are in the works. Oh, and I also have a friend’s powder room that I’m going to start in this next month. Lots of exciting things going on! There’s just something about winter that makes me want to get projects completed. Maybe it’s being stuck indoors with all of this cold weather?
How about you?
Any big projects underway?
