If you like then you shoulda put a stripe on it: New Home Projects

I started this post a few weeks ago, but in the midst of unpacking and getting used to our new neighborhood, I never pressed submit.

I think your house becomes a little bit more your home once you put up pictures. I can speak with credibility here since I have been a home owner for all of 14 days. Ha. The last two weeks have been fun as we get settled into our new home and figure out where everything gets placed and what pictures to hang where. Hanging the TVs on the wall was not stressful (to me anyways). Hanging up the picture from our wedding…stressful. Who wants to put holes in freshly painted walls?? Ahh so much pressure to hang the pictures! Well last night we made progress and started small by hanging the pictures in my office. Hooray for stuff on the walls!

We also completed our first “home” project.



We turned the mudroom in to a useable space. The bench was installed to match our kitchen cabinets. Beyond that, we painted the white and teal stripes and I made the cover for the seat cushion. I am so proud of the way it turned out and couldn’t have done it without my partner in crime.
