I hope you are having a great week, I have being taking advantage of this amazing weather, all thanks to Lidia’s offering to the Goddess of Spring. I also took time to do some much needed spring-cleaning around the house. Unfortunately, after many hours of cleaning I’m still not done. Don’t forget, I have a 23 month old running around or behind me and undoing most of what I just did. Anyhow, I finally took some time last night to write this post and I’m very excited about it. It’s a sneak peek of the projects I have been working on or will be working on very soon but I’m not ready to share them with you just yet. I have wanted to post this since last week but I was never sure how to go about writing it. So, here it goes:
Over a week ago, my younger brother surprised us with boxes of ceramic tiles knowing how much I enjoy DIY’s and that I have been considering replacing the ugly tiles from our main floor bathroom or the ones from our entrance. He got them for us at a very low price ($15) for the entire set because these were the only ones left.
Great deal, isn’t it?
I was excited when he told us all these boxes were a gift for us and to use them however we wanted to. Too many great ideas started going through my mind at the same time. Of course, how often does this happen? I guess, hubby and I we have a lot of work to do in the next weeks to come. But knowing us, this is a project that will only get started in June once the days will get longer and warmer. I will keep you posted and will probably create myself a new Pinterest board just for this, I need inspiration.
When my brother gave us all this ceramic tiles as a gift, I started visualizing how they would look in either our entrance or in our main floor bathroom. Because, we had no choice when it came to the color of the ceramic tiles, I keep thinking about different color schemes for these two spaces.
These are the colors that I’m entertaining: dark grey and red:
Now, after many sleepless nights, I don’t think I will opt for red. As you may already know, red is my favourite color and I’m often drawn to this color but after much thought, I think it’s too bold for an entrance or a bathroom. Hubby says the red would give him stage fright. If you know me well by now; there will be endless hours of shopping for paint.
Monday, started off well with my first spray painting project of the year. I won’t show you yet what I spray painted but I will show you the color I choose: yellow. Yellow, it’s a fun color and it’s perfect for spring and summer. If I don’t like it or want it anymore, I can always paint it again, right?
What else has kept me busy during these last days?
I’m a little bit ashamed of admitting this but I have been updating my recently completed craft room again. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I keep changing the furniture around in my home. I won’t tell you everything yet because I’m still working on it but I hope you will love the small changes as much as I do.
I don’t know what I would do without notebooks? So, I decided to give some of them a makeover, can’t wait to show you how:
You have seen me spray painting or paint different items in the past but now you will see me using this amazing Martha Stewart glass paint set:
this is another fun and easy project that I can’t wait to complete, so I can share it with you very soon:
This is a sneak peek of a future post that I’m also very excited about. I think you will enjoy reading all about it!
another easy DIY project:
As soon as there will be less wind outside I will be working on this old side table, it needs a serious update. I might keep these leather handles:
You might recognize these crates from Michael’s, I got them a while ago for a DIY project but never got around to it. I have so many options and so many possibilities of what I can do with these that I am overwhelmed and can’t decide what to do yet. Any ideas? I have considered them for a side table next to this reading corner in our dining area or for storage on top of our new pantry. I might paint them or stain them in the following weeks. I took a picture of them so you can see what I’m talking about and if you have any ideas for me please let me know, I would appreciate them!
Last but not least, this is a small project I will be working on this week with my little assistant. Can’t wait to get my hands on these:
Too many projects going on at the same time?
This spring will be a busy one, so let’s hope May will bring warmer days too. I’m still working on many of these projects but I will make sure to share them with you when they will be completed. Hope you stick around!
Thanks again for stopping by!
