Fireplace Makeover Sneak Peek {and Pin-worthy past projects!}


Whew!  We are working our tails off over here, y’all!

It’s “Knock it Out Week!” at our house!  The boys are home for fall break this week, and we are enlisting their help to “knock out” a ton of projects in our house.

Cy has started on our fireplace makeover, and I’ve started prepping our master bedroom closet to paint.

I am soooo thrilled to finally be getting a real fireplace mantle to decorate for the holidays.  I LOVE having a fireplace in our home, even though it doesn’t work right now. Smile

I will share the complete makeover with you this week, so stay tuned!


On another note, I have been trying to update some of my older posts.  I am hoping to get a gallery page up and running soon on my blog, so you can see all of my projects in little thumbnail pictures on one page.

I have also tried to make each post more “pinnable” with a “beauty shot” at the beginning of each post.


Here are four of the posts I have updated so far.

If you click on the link or the picture, it will take you to that post.  The post of the buffet makeover has some adorable pictures of my sweet Eli helping me when he was only 2!  I about cried when I saw those pictures!

If you like any of these projects, I would love it if you pinned them to Pinterest.  All of these projects were completed WAY before the days of the almighty Pinterest.

If you hover your cursor over each picture, a little “pin it” button will show up for you use.  Thanks!
