I wanted to share a few little home improvements today.
My home has had the furniture moved around millions of times.
Rooms have been painted and re-painted.
My sweet man and I have placed new carpeting in our den and a
couple of bedrooms that had seen its share of kids...
You know what I am talking about!
Well, we have been re-loving it again as of late...
My sweet man and I bought our home over 14 years ago.
It's your classic home in a little neighborhood
that has been around since the early 70s.
There are no windows across the front of the entire house.
It has gray brick and no front porch.
The first time I saw it, we were looking at the two story across the street.
When the Realtor mentioned this house was for sale, I remember looking over
at my husband and saying...No. There's NO windows!
But like any woman, I was very interested in
finding out what the inside looked like.
(You know you would have done the very same thing.)
The minute we walked in and the front door closed,
I knew it.
I was home.
Even without windows...
even with dull gray bricks.
That front door closed behind us and I realized the world disappeared.
It was calm, silent and the smell of the lit candle in the kitchen
hallway signed the deal right then and there for me.
The next look I gave my husband was the one that sold him on the house.
It was a huge purchase and with five children, we worried we couldn't really
afford it AND take a summer vacation too.
Somehow we did...
and boy am I grateful.
Well, with our nest empty again, we have decided to rekindle our love for
our little home...I have been filling empty spaces with little homemade goodies...
and my sweet man has been granting wishes for me...
This is just the latest...
Our little kitchen wall.
It isn't finished yet, but picture it with a beautiful shelf
across the top of those boards, painted all white...
(let's face it..that is YELLOW pine and WILL YELLOW with stain...ick!)
and then a lovely shade of green above.
I can just picture exactly how I want this to go and I am excited
to finish it and start my next little project!
Honey, I didn't mean it...COME BACK!!!!!
