New Beginnings!

Good Morning!  First thing, I can't believe I have 150 Followers!  Yay!  Thanks for joining my blog and keeping my DIY spirit alive.  I think if it weren't for blogging I probably wouldn't get as many projects done.  You guys keep me on my toes!

Another thing that has kept me on my toes lately is the job hunt.  But I'm happy to report that I was offered a really good position and I couldn't pass it up.  So I start my new job in 2 weeks!  Talk about new beginnings!  It's a little scary, but exciting at the same time.

So the race is on around here to get as much done as humanly possible.  And with that comes more projects hahaha!  So here are a few things on my to-do list:

A while back I showed you this hutch I scored for $25.... well it's just been sitting in my sun room for MONTHS!  I'm planning on putting it my new kitchen to use as extra storage... but it's been waiting for a much needed makeover.  So I busted out the paint and now have it almost ready for glaze.  I'm hoping to have this finished up by week's end because I'm hosting Bonko at my house in a month.  And we typically play out in the sun room... so it's time to make way for that!

I'm also working on repurposing this cute lamp I got at the thrift store not too long ago.  It's going to go in my bedroom as part of a spring update. 

This is another re-work in the works.  An old birdhouse that has a broken insert.  I can't wait to redo this and put it in my new kitchen hutch!

And along with those few fun projects, we've been killing it out in the yard for our Back Yard Makeover.  So an update is coming soon on that one too.

So there are a lot of new beginnings on the horizon.  I'm excited and nervous... but I know I can do this!  Thanks for joining me on the ride :)

Have a great day!
