First Home Improvement Project

I finished my class this weekend... YAY!! So I have three weeks off before my LAST class begins. It was a rainy day Saturday so we decided to work on a home improvement project. We picked out blinds for the kitchen and family room a few weeks ago and liked them so much we decided to put them in our bedroom, living room, and dining room. They are not anything fancy but are a drastic improvement from what was orginally in the house. We really like the way they look on the windows. We will be working on adding drapes as well.

Last weekend we picked up our new coffee table and end table for the family room.

With the coffee table and the drapes in the family room it is almost finished. We still need to work on updating some of the decorations in the room, but plan to do that over time. For now, here is what it looks like.


  1. I love the paint color in the family room! What color is it?

  2. It is called Hunter's White by Valspar..... Just as a disclaimer, I think it is a little more green in real life than in photos, but I am glad you like it because I like it too! I did not realize you had a new blog. I have a lot of catching up to do!

  3. We aren't planning on painting anything soon, but just for future reference ;)

    I ditched my old blog and started two new blogs. One for family and friends, and the other for "trusted" individuals and people I don't know. You have the one for "trusted" individuals ;) But if you want the one for family and friends you I can get that to you. Of course, you won't be missing out on anything as I update this "private" one a lot more!
