Project line up

Well, we're counting down the days till the move. Looks like it'll be next weekend. Which means I need to get my butt in gear and pack. So I'll be taking a break from blogging for the next couple of weeks.

Don't cry, I promise when I get back I'll be doing some awesome stuff! Since my husband will be gone to Rucker for 8 weeks, I've lined up 8 projects to keep me kicking while he's gone. Here's what I plan on doing with tons of tutorials...

Week 1: Upholstered headboard with, of course, ruffles!!

Week 2: Barn like shutters for the outside of the house, new galvanized lights, and some chairs turned into flower holders.

Week 3: Kitchen backsplash and wall treatment. I'll give you a hint. It's getting beadboard and a LOT of it.

Week 4: Laundry room work surface and washer and dryer hider (I hate looking at those things!)

Week 5: Paneling and paint in Paysen's room. I'm SO excited to be doing this project.

Week 6: New ruffled bedskirt and other bedding in my room. ALL WHITE.

Week 7: Kids bathroom redo. New paint, salvaged wood on the walls, lighting and a mirror.

Week 8: Old mirror project. I have a little collection of antique mirrors but I need a ton for this project so I'll be making new ones look old with chemicals.

It's quite the line up but I'm trying to keep myself busy! I'll leave you with one of Caleb's favorite quotes...

"Don't tell my mother I fly blackhawks. She thinks I play piano in a whore house."

Over and out.


  1. lol, you're so funny Nikki! Can't wait to see all the fun projects! Good luck with the move!!!

  2. wow...hit the floor running at a full sprint!

  3. Okay seriously I SO wish I was there I want to help do all of these! Yay for whore-houses!

  4. What a hilarious quote!
    Anyone who flys Black Hawks is probably a very happy camper right now...
    I got to open a door for Michael Durant years ago at Cracker Barrel...oh but we are talking about home decor...I like your ideas!
