We’ve been in our house, officially for a month now and things are really feeling like home. We’ve still got a good ways to go
Next is our guest bedroom / office, which has a long way to go. We’ll be getting the bedroom furniture that I had as a kid and I’m going to refinish it an antique black. There are two dressers, one with a hutch, full length mirror and night stand. Once we get our bedroom furniture we’ll put the bed that we have now in there. My desk will stay in there as well.
Hayden’s room needs to be painted and I need to start purchasing all the stuff for it. I’ve decided to do a vintage/retro car theme in his room. I usually don’t like cartoon themed rooms, but I found this really cute Car bedding set at Walmart for only 35.00. I like it b/c its kind of muted and not too cartoon-ish. I’m not sure what colors I’ll do the wall yet, but I think I want to do a racing stripe around the center. I also want to get some large shelves and start collecting old cars to put on them. I plan to check Ebay for old license plates as well, to put on the wall. He loves cars so I think he’ll really like his room when I’m finished with it.
Outdoors we have some projects as well. Next weekend, Wade is supposed to work on the fence. We are pulling the left side up closer to the front of the house so that we can eventually put a door from the kitchen into the backyard and have a patio out there. We are also closing in the right side and putting a gate. We want to break up a portion of the concrete in front and repour just a small walkway, then put a railing along the porch and make a garden in front. We’ve dug out the outline of the front yard garden and have started killing the grass. We’ll get some top soil delivered and beging building up and planting. Wade also wants to plant a tree in the backyard and 2 trees in the front yard. Its a lot of money and work owning a home, but so satisfying to see everything come together!
