Summer Projects

I made a list of things that I want to accomplish while I am home for the summer. I wanted to do a project per week, but trips and things have sort of gotten in the way of that. I have altered my plan to work on something daily so i can get as many projects done as I can. Here are some of my summer projects so far. I love how they turned out.
Project #1
Half bath cabinets

This is the before.

And this is after. I love them.

Project #2
Is our small pantry or shelves in the kitchen

Here is the mess before. WOW!!

And this is how it looks now.
I could look at it for days.
I primed and painted all of the shelves you notice
the old brown color in the before.
Now it is bright white and clean. On the top shelf I
got baskets from Dollar Tree
made labels using my silhouette machine.
I also cut some lettering out of vinyl.
Here is a close up of the baskets.

They will help us stay organized. I think it turned out great.
The colors go really well in my kitchen. I wasn't sure the dollar store
was going to have what I needed for this project.
Why would I doubt they always pull through.
With a little creativity you can decorate and get organized on a budget.

Family Photos

These are our most recent family pictures. Look at Eden she is getting so big and her little personality is starting to develop. She is so funny she has a mind of her own. She knows what she wants and will try really hard to get it. When she gets caught doing something she shouldn't she will try to hurry and finish her task before we get to her. Like the other day when I went in her room and she had her dads package of gum and was biting into all of the pieces with the wrappers on. I said Eden no no and you could see on her face this little smile and she hurries and puts the last piece in her mouth, or when she is taking all of Dads cards out of his wallet she gets caught and tries to finish her task. She does it all with the cutest giggle and smile on her face so it is hard to get mad at her. Oh what a cute girl she is.
