It's Been a While!

June 29, 2015

Hey y'all!

So, I'm not dead, I just made an epic blogger fail in ignoring  forgetting to renew my hosting for Then, when I got another email reminding me to renew, I was too late and it had been cancelled which meant I had to spend more money to get it back up and then more money to renew the hosting. It was about to be something close to $200 and since I haven't made anything close to that on this hear blog, I decided to not renew my hosting.

So, here I am, back on blogger, because it's free. I still have another year to stop being cheap and pay for the renewal and all that but for right now, I just can't see spending that much money.

Hopefully y'all understand my predicament.

So, if you follow on bloglovin I would really really really appreciate it if you followed since this is my new home.

And, thank God for Hometalk. You may not be able to access my old projects via my blog, but since I share each one on Hometalk you can see them there! And of course, you can always see what I'm up to on Instagram!

I'm actually kind of excited for this "fresh" start. It's kinda like a new school year or something.

Anywho, on to what I've been up to lately...

I have been a painting, hole patching fool lately and quite frankly I can not wait to be done.

The previous owner painted every single ceiling a light blue color so I've gone back in and painted the ceilings white in the entry, hallway, living and dining room and kitchen. I still gotta get to the el baños and bedrooms but at least the main areas are done.

Next, I finished the beadboard in the entry. I first painted it white last year but I didn't think about matching the beadboard color with the trim so I went back in with an ultra white trim paint and repainted the trim and beadboard.

Eventually I would like to remove the beadboard and replace it with board and batten, but for now this looks a lot better than what it did when we moved in.

I finally convinced Corey to let me re-paint our front door to Sherwin Williams Waterscape. I love how welcoming and happy it makes the front door look. I'll be sharing the tutorial on how I painted the door soon!

Next up on my painting list I needed to re-do the kitchen and dining room. When we first moved in the kitchen and dining room were some ugly blue color, we painted over it with Sherwin Williams cambelback. I liked it at the time but then wanted something cooler and lighter. I went with Sherwin Williams agreeable gray. Sometimes the color looked like a greige which is what I was going for, other times it looked mauve. And I do not want mauve walls. So, I pondered over painting the space again and finally decided I would because I just wasn't happy with it. Since I love the Accessible Beige (looks like a light greige) I used in the hallway and living room I decided to do the kitchen and dining room the same color.

This little corner at the end of our kitchen houses the door access to to the back deck. Since guests sometimes come in through this door I'm planning on doing board and batten with hooks in this corner and maybe some mail bins or something. I started trimming the corners and ceiling with the accessible beige in this picture but I took this to show you how mauve-y the previous color looked.

Lastly, Corey and I finally got around to landscaping around these parts. No mo mud and weeds!

Now, this may not look like much to you but after two years of living with a weed infested flower bed, this thing looks like one of the afters on Yard Crashers or something. We're planning on doing stone to cover the concrete on the house and we'll be re-doing the front porch but at least everything looks a lot tidier. I love hydrangeas so I'm thinking I'll add some of those in with some boxwoods or something? I don't do bugs and I am not a big fan of gardening so whatever is low maintenance, I'm on board. 

So now that I've caught y'all up on a little bit of what's been going on here I'm looking forward to catching up on my bloglovin feed!

P. S. If you would like to come over and help me finish painting I will provide the pizza and beer/wine. Whatever blows your skirt up.
