You are my sunshine...

I dedicate this post/project to my future husband. I love my house- but it is missing a man cave and with my soon-to-be husband moving into the house in 60 days. So I am trying to give him a few "manly" things in the house. I decided to take this cute, but rusted, cabinet (perfect mini bar for the patio!)...

So after a steel brush, a hose, some scrubbing and some spray paint..sunshine yellow in honor of App State University, the soon-to-be-hubby's alma mater... the project is a work in progress, but so far it is looking good... stay tuned for final project! 

Oh... a HUGE thanks to my Mom who is in town and helping me with this project- among 100 others!!!!

365 Days...

It was actually more than 365 days ago that I signed my name to a 30 year mortgage! 29 years to go! I became a homeowner a year ago on May 27 (I know this post is a week late!). I look back and can't believe the progress I have made on the house. I will have to admit, I went full steam ahead when I first moved in, but when cash and time became more and more limited I slowed down. The past few months I have been planning my wedding and attending many other nuptials. I have a few small projects that are on my list to finish soon, but more on that later. 

In the meantime... here is a look at the changes!

more on this change.. but this is picture above is my "after" photo

These are just a few of the changes... take a look at my blog posts throughout the last year for more of the projects and details!
