1. Paint and Update the Kitchen:
Yep, so that wall is pale yellow on top and completely boring. It's been this way for some time now. I'm looking at it as more of a blank slate, and I have a fun plan for it. I was contacted by Dutch Boy to do a review of their paint line geared for kitchens, so I'm super excited to tackle this project. We have all the supplies ready...just waiting for some drywall repairs before I can begin. (When you start a DIY project, it's funny how a bunch of other related ones pop up)
So...the kitchen is going to be painted, I have new window treatments in the works, and some new accessories. With some help from Dutch Boy, Krylon, and Purdy this room should come together this Fall.
2. Continue Operation Update Family Room:
A "budget crisis" derailed this room update for the summer, but I do have a slipcover I need to fit on the couch and some canvases to order. I'd love to get that gallery wall started above the couch...hoping to be inspired sooner rather than later! In the meantime, I am loving my thrift store end tables makeover job.
3.Update some excessively blah IKEA bins for my Thrift Store Expedit:
I bought the least expensive bins I could find at IKEA, but they are creamy-whitish and very plain. I want to make tags or something cute so the girls know what's inside each bin. As much as I'd love this to be a beautiful display piece; in our home, with our lack of storage space, it needs to be a spot for corralling the girls' stuff.
4. Try some new crafts.
I still want to try my hand at those lovely DIY photo canvases I'm seeing pop up everywhere. I have a cute Christmas sewing craft planned (just need to pick up some supplies!), and I'm itching to spray paint something before the weather gets too cold.
This isn't DIY or craft related, but I've been doing a lot of thinking about my blog over the summer and throughout this Fall. I'm reevaluating how I spend my time and what is most important.
Do you have any goals you're hoping to reach this Fall?
