Projects In Progress - Sneak Peak

Around our house fall is our spring.  We seem to always start a kabillion projects, staying busy from October to January.

We are throwing our annual Halloween Party on the 30th so we decided to do  some of the things on our to do list, all in one month, like fools.

I finally chose a color and painted my living room.  The winner was Mega Greige by Sherwin Williams color matched by Valspar and I LURVE it!!  Here is a glimpse of what it looks like (left color is old and right color is Mega Greige).  I will post a final reveal once the entire room is complete.


I am working on a dresser I found for $25 to use as a media center in the living room.  It is currently black and I am going to paint it white and maybe add glaze.  I am still undecided but will post once complete!


Who me....a hoarder???

If my husband was not around I would definitely be a hoarder.  Who doesn’t need 200 magazines or 75 picture frames?  It is impossible to become a hoarder when your husband has a 30 cubic yard roll off container delivered to your backyard.  He wanted me to rid the house of all unwanted items.


Along with cleaning out the house he started sprucing up our pathetic excuse for a garage.  A new garage is not in the budget, so he threw out a ton of stuff into his beloved dumpster and is working with what we have by adding new siding, new garage doors, and a new roof.  Anything will look better then what is out there now, so I will be happy when that project is complete.


The last thing we started and need to finish before the Halloween party is cleaning our yard of big tree branches.  We live on 2.5 acres that is covered in massive oak trees.  Many branches were hanging over the garage or hanging low, so we got a great deal from a friend of a friend to cut some of the limbs.  Part of getting such a great deal consisted of him just dropping them where they landed and us chopping them smaller and moving them.  I can’t explain how excited I am about having to help with that job! 


Snapper season started this month and ends this month, so in addition to trying to complete all of these projects {we mindlessly started} we are trying to squeeze in some fishing on the weekends.  The last trip was unsuccessful in regards to red snapper, but I did catch my first shark!


Shhh.... don’t tell my husband.....

I have just as many projects I would love to complete next month!

I have never even been fishing. And who knew you were so DIY? That is awesome! I watch the shows and never end up doing anything.
