Around the House: Part II

Recently we haven't done too much around the house. We replaced the garage doors recently (read about it here), but otherwise we haven't done too much. I have a few small projects here or there that I have done lately however.

Connor's Room
This project had to wait until Connor was actually born since it had all his stats. Just like in Addison's room I made an 11 x 17" print of stats for his room. 


Also in Connor's room, I finally fixed the yellow peeking out along the ceiling. When Addison was in this room, her room was a bright yellow and I loved her room but I wanted to change it up for Connor (See what her room was like here and see what his room looks like now here). But when I painted - and I'm the worst at it - I didn't do a great job of covering all the yellow just at the top by the ceiling so I finally got around to fixing it. 


Main Bathroom
There isn't much going on the bathroom. It is just a bathroom but why can't it have a little something fun. So I got these prints from Etsy and I love them 


Inside the drawers of the vanity since we moved in is some awful vinyl lining. It looks kind of gross and just dated so I finally decided to do something about that too. Unlike all my other projects I needed Rob's help. Measuring and cutting got me all confused and I didn't do it right the first time around so he had to help me fix it. But it turned out great. I still need to work on the lining under the sink but for the now the drawers are done. 


Outside
I am not a garden/yard person. I tend to kill plants and I just don't enjoy yard work. But that doesn't mean there isn't things that need to happen outside sometimes. By our chimney, we have a rock area that got overgrown by dead tall grass. It isn't something that anyone sees but us but that doesn't mean it doesn't drive me crazy. So while Rob played with Addison and Connor slept I spent some time pulling the grass hoping some critter or snake wasn't going to jump out at me. It's not perfect and needs more rocks and still some help, but it definitely looks better. 


"Library"
In our sitting room we have a set of three bookshelves - all three different colors and that alone drives me crazy - but there are quite a few books that I wanted to get rid of because I didn't like or don't want to read again. So I finally spent some time one day working on two bookshelves while Addie played and Connor slept in the bouncer next to me. I definitely liked how it turned out and it looks pretty good. 


There is still plenty of stuff I want to do but at least there's a small handful done.
