well, well, well. i know i am a little late to the party, but happy new year! 2013 was such a GREAT year, that i couldn't help but review some major events.of course, the highlight of 2013 was the construction of our new house. after renting for 5 years, it was such a welcome treat to be able to design and build our home. there were some days when i was certain that we would not be able to pull it off, but i am so grateful that things worked out!
here is a look back at some of the highlights of 2013.
we had the worst winter in 50 years. i don't think i will ever, EVER forget how much snow, ice, fog and general coldness there was.
interior doors with 5 panels. still very happy with that decision!
ebay triumphs, including this kohler purist faucet, which i found for 70% less than retail.
we spent a lot of time at the house doing whatever needed to get done!
my kitchen was designed.
the exterior siding got installed.
and i chose the perfect white for the outside.
i installed hardwood floors on the entire main floor. my back and knees hurt just thinking about it.
striped island was installed!
dark walnut for the floor stain.
work continued on the exterior retaining walls.
drawers for under the sink were intsalled.
look at my kitchen and dining room.
first look at the upstairs of my house.
new range arrived!
i made some mirror changes to the design plan for grady's bathroom and started making progress.
and installed our diy budget closets.
and did a tutorial for a quick frame makeover...
and we took a family trip to the southeast--tennessee, alabama and south carolina.
and took you on a tour of my christmas decor.
and showed you how to make these fun ornaments!
thank you SO much for joining me on this little trip down memory lane. in 2014, i will be sharing some fabulous projects as i continue to *FINALLY decorate my new home. i am actually starting the "dreaded" wallpaper project for the teeny-tiny vestibule today! it is already going better than i expected, and i am excited to share the results with you!
happy new year!!
