I told you in my last post, that we were leaving to go out of town for a few days because my little sister had bought a house & we were going up north for a few days to help her move in & work on a few projects to get her settled! Well we finally got home last night & let me just tell you….THIS.GIRL.IS.POOPED!! The amount of stuff we got accomplished in just four days is kinda crazy!! We had lots of additional help with my mom & dad and aunt & uncle, who also made the trip north! All & all, it was a fun & productive weekend with family….
I LOVE that little covered porch…..but I think it’s missing a porch swing! Wouldn’t you agree?! I also adore the little screened-in porch on the side of the house! I would make the perfect spot to drink a cup of coffee & eat breakfast in the morning….that is when it cools off a little bit!! Notice the brown grass?! That’s pretty much because we haven’t had any rain in a million years!! And it’s been hot…..like 100 DEGREES HOT!!
Because we had so many projects going on, we didn’t have time to whip up a cushion for the bench or go out & shop for throw pillows & accessories for the new entry nook, but because I wanted to stage it for blog photos, we managed to throw a few things together…..just keep in mind, that this isn’t how its going to stay!
It’s also kid approved!!
Let’s take one last look at the Before & After…..
The board & batten wall behind the front door was super quick & easy to put up….
We used the existing baseboard & then added the 1 x 4 to the top. Then we purchase three 1 x 3′s & cut them to the length we needed. We found the center of the wall for the middle batten & the two others were added to the outside edges. Then all of the seams were caulked, the boards were sanded down, & the wall was primed & painted. We added the same Dollar General hooks that we used for the entry nook, & Voila….
A pretty & yet FUNCTIONAL wall to hang keys, purses, etc!
And let’s take one last look at the “Before” space as a whole…..
And now the “After”….
Don’t ya think?!
I think the entry nook is MY FAVORITE!!
It’s just so cute & cozy!!
What is your favorite part?!
