You haven’t seen much of me on social media lately, and there’s a good reason why. I’ve been elbow-deep in DIY projects and blog design projects.
I love hanging flower baskets on a porch. It cheers up the space while adding a pop of color. Let’s hope I don’t forget to water these this year. Oops.
The following is the guest bedroom’s progress.
I must be crazy for going through all of this for just a rental property, but the walls here were driving me insane. The house looks nice at first glance, but after a while, the things I thought I was okay with starting bugging me more and more. The carpeting was stained as well as the walls.
Getting our landlord to fork over the cash for paint and new carpeting was like pulling teeth. I will never understand people who have a house and don’t maintain it. Even with me doing all the painting, he still complained about the cost of the paint. And it was 40% off. Seriously? Stop being so cheap!
I used Sherwin Williams’ ‘Panda White’ in this room. I think it brightens it up so much! I was painting all day yesterday and will probably start on my office tonight. THAT room is a disaster. Di-sas-ter. It’s why I haven’t had any office makeover reveals on the blog.
With all the drama behind my IKEA desk (that I am STILL waiting on a refund for!) and the condition of the room, it hasn’t been the cheerful blogging and designing space that I’ve wanted. As soon as that baby is brightened like this room I’ll update it.
Does spring time bring out the cleaning / DIY / renovating nutcase in you?
