House Update: First Coat of Primer!

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

As I have mentioned a few times already, we bought a house recently! And not just any house, but a foreclosed on, fixer-upper. Thankfully, nothing too major but still a lot of work nonetheless.

I thought I would go ahead and give an update on where we're at in the process.

Today I started painting! Literally the entire house, inside and out, is going to get a fresh new coat, and I had initially thought that we would be almost done with that by now. It seems like getting ready to paint takes a lot longer than actually painting though. Between appliance and air conditioner malfunctions, a yard being taken over by weeds, holes that needed patching, and Dane being crazy busy at work, I am just now being able to get started!

So today one of my sister's came over and helped me primer Dane's office. Here's a little before and after on today's progress!


I forgot to take my before pictures before I started tearing down wallpaper border!


Yes that's a dining room chair, and yes I used it as a step stool. Good thing it's getting painted too!

I'm so glad to be rid of that blue and red. It already feels so, so much better!

In other news, I've been working on some new card designs for the shop! And also still working out my new branding and logo (which is proving to be more difficult than I originally thought. Maybe I'm just picky). If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen some of the sneak peaks I've shared, like these new art prints!

Things are trucking along around here, even if they aren't trucking as fast as I might like.

I'm also loving this summer weather! I have never considered myself a summer girl, but the older I get, the more that changes. I scored a used patio table at a yard sale a couple weeks ago, and I've been eating most of my meals out there. I love how late the sun stays out, and how great it smells outside all the time. I'm dreaming up tons of fun plans for the next few months, like camping, going to the water park, and getting my patio all set up the way I want it. I will share some plans and inspiration for that soon too!

All in all, things are going pretty good around here. Are there any big plans or projects that  you are working toward this summer? Let me know! I'd love to hear about them :)

Thanks for stopping by!
