This Week on Pinterest- Wreath and Fall “L”

Tracy / October 15, 2012

I’m staying on top of these Pinterest projects. I fear having the ideas build up and sit there useless, so we’re trying to pick a few projects to try each week, (if time allows, more). This last week, we made the fall wreath for our door. I used the idea I found here. Our wreath was made from styrofoam (speaking…

Window Whimsy

Tracy / October 9, 2012

I’m trying to pay a lot more attention to details in my home these days. It’s the little things that my children and husband will remember when they are away, and the little things that make me smile when I think of home. I started telling Courtney I wanted to hang Christmas lights in my bedroom about a year ago…

This Week on Pinterest– Pumpkin Pictures (October 2, 2012)

Tracy / October 3, 2012

We don’t celebrate Halloween, but I’m a sucker for fall decorations! About a year ago, we screwed little cup hooks into each of the bedroom doors. They are specifically for hanging little seasonal decorations. Just something to add a warm touch to the hall. 🙂 In any case, I loved this idea on Pinterest for fall. (Don’t you just love…

Plywood to Plank Flooring Tutorial

When we first purchased this home, we realized it needed a LOT of work. Still the size, the price, and the location were all perfect. We knew this was the Lord at work, and we jumped in! As the last couple of years have passed, we’ve slowly been working one project after another. The floors, in particular, have been one…

Can you tell our home has been a busy place?? 🙂 Amongst other things, Pinterest, left me inspired to paint my interior doors black. These are our before and (almost) after pictures. I’ll post another picture when they are complete! We’ve been painting all the hardware Krylon’s “Oil Rubbed Bronze” to match our front door hardware. It is beautiful, and…

Another quick house project! When we moved into our home, we noticed that all the front door hardware had a different finish! A quick coat of Krylon’s Oil Rubbed Bronze left us with matching hardware! Hurray!!

This week in our home….

I’ve been feeling a bit “under the weather”. I apparently found a nasty little bug and it just doesn’t seem to want to leave. If you think on it, please keep me in your prayers. It’s not much fun to manage a family when you aren’t feeling well. We have managed to continue with our home projects. Our pantry now…

If you had told me two years ago, or even one year ago, that we would have still been cleaning this house, I would have laughed! Yet, here we are! This week, Paul has been home ALL WEEK!! For those who know us personally, you know how unusual this is for our family. We have soaked up every single minute…

POTD- April 26, 2012

We’ve been busy painting and working around our home (maybe early nesting, *smile*). This is a little project I’ve slipped in between coats of drywall mud, and floor stain. We’re replacing all the plastic outlet and switch plate covers with oak: We bought them at the hardware store (I was surprised how inexpensive they were!), and applied a coat of…

POTD- April 24, 2012

We’re continuing to make little changes to our home each week. This project, was painting Courtney’s closet doors.


Paul has now finished his degree. He’s still waiting to graduate, but now, we’re ordering graduation announcements and enjoying the extra time with him. While he’s had a little more free time, he’s been working on my pantry. I’m SO very excited! We’ve needed one for a long time. He and Jacob have worked most of the afternoon, and will…
