So over the course of the last few months we have done a lot of “home improvement” type stuff – from painting the hallway to installing a new mantle to building a Cinder Block Garden. In the past I have just trekked up to our neighborhood Lowe’s or Home Depot for what I wanted, wish I had a bigger selection to choose from. This week I was excited to find a site that has everything that I want – and I can get it delivered right to my door! Mike is REALLY excited I wont have to keep using the Escalade as a “hauling truck” 🙂
I actually discovered this site looking for a Garden Arbor to add to our back yard. I have always loved the look of these and thought it would be a great addition to our short little fence that leads to where our vegetable garden is. Garden Arbors are such a great way to really add some character to the entrance of a garden. I love the ones that look almost “whimsical” – like there should be magic or fairies or something in the garden behind them. (Plus then I have an excuse to get more purple Wisteria!!)
Then, last month we installed a new garbage disposal, which was an absolute nightmare, because truth be told we probably need a new sink. It took four days – and three men – working on it to get it to stop leaking. Who knew you could order kitchen sinks from the internet!? If that bad boy starts leaking again, I will for sure just order a whole new sink!
I continued perusing this site – which offers just about everything you can possibly imagine – and fell in love with this glass top dining table which I think will replace the one we have just perfectly, so we can move ours into the “kitchen nook” which only sports a lonely rocking chair. I hope to install French Doors in the kitchen leading out to the back yard and really start using that area of the kitchen for the girls to do their homework, eat breakfast, play games, etc instead of always using our dining room table. Maybe it is the Post-Apartment Manager Staging Fanatic in me but I would much rather the dining room table be a place to put our China or glass vases filled with fruit or something pretty like that.
Between this new site and Pinterest, I am sure I will have many more “projects” to do soon! Did you do any Home Improvement projects this year? Or do you have any planned for the Fall?
