Life and House Update!


It's been about a month since my last post but this is what I have been up to. If you follow my Instagram, you would know Adam and I have been doing a TON of work around our house. We repainted our living room, fireplace, the kitchen (sans the cabinets which will probably be painted in the near future), and pulling out weeds from our yard. Phew, a lot of work. Plus, we have been anxiously wanting to invite family and friends over for all kinds of homemade food and just to hang out so our house definitely needed some TLC. It's been quite a journey and it's still going but surely enough, our house is becoming more of a home.

Here's a little back story, Adam's been living in his house for many years but I only just moved in last August 2017. We haven't been able to do much around the house during that time because we were dealing with some type of mite issue. We practically lived in our bedroom and felt discouraged a lot of the time. Adam did all he could to remedy the problem but didn't have much luck. It was not fun but once we were able to get a new furnace, the bugs seemed to have died out from the heat. Crossing our fingers it stays that way because even after cleaning the house, they would come back with a vengeance. This is our progress so far and I'll be updating more throughout the weeks.

 Our living room color wasn't bad, it was just boring to us. It's the usual white painted walls but we wanted something to warm up the room and make it feel more cozy so we opted for a warmer color called "Nomadic" from Home Depot. I swear, it must be fun trying to come up with names for colors and products. I know I would have a great time getting creative with names.

For our fireplace, I wasn't digging the sage green color. I felt like it didn't go well with the overall room. Don't get me wrong, I like the color but not for a fireplace. Also, as you can probably tell, Adam had someone fix the huge spot on the wall with new texture and we definitely needed to apply some fresh paint.
Which, fun fact is how we decided what color to paint our fireplace.
 The closest color to the spray paint was "Balsamic Reduction" from Kelly Moore.  

It was not too hard but a tedious task to get in to all the grooves and the cracks of the fireplace. Honestly, I find projects like this to be therapeutic. Who else feels the same way?

Anyway, that's what we have been doing for the past few weeks. There's still so much more to do but with good things take time, right? It's fun to look back on all the progress we have made so I hope you enjoyed our unfinished home makeover thus far and stay tune for more. Have a great Friday!
