Projects To Do

Now that the weather is starting to perk up, I'm getting excited to conquering a few projects that need to get worked on. Daylight savings happened over the weekend and I'll be thrilled to have some daylight when I get home from work to craft and photograph life.

This record cabinet, which my Dad pulled the speaker out of right after I bought it, has been on my to-do list since I bought it two years ago. Right now, it functions has our bar but I would love to recover the front and think about what it would look like with gray paint.

I hate these bar stools. I thought I liked them and Tim and I tend to battle between what I like and what's actually practical. Someday, we will have lovely bar stools but right now we have these. My plan is to paint them green and reupholster the seats with black and white fabric. They will be better!

My poor little vanity. I got this so long ago, I think I was in high school, and had such high hopes for it. I could never commit to what I wanted to do with it, but I'm thinking a charcoal gray and some pretty glass knobs. I was thinking about maybe getting a glass top cut for it too. That stool also needs some work...

 Hooray for projects and nice weather to do them in!

March Goals

It's March and I can feel bits of Spring beginning to peek through. Very exciting.

For February, I talked about cooking more at home, finishing up our living room and downstairs bathroom, and taking more daily-life photos. Well, I've absolutely been cooking more at home! Our switching to eating better has made me much more aware of what we should and shouldn't be eating on a regular basis. I've also discovered ways to cook vegetables that I never liked that we now love. Hooray!

I would say I took a few daily-life photos this month (which I guess is better than none, but I still don't consider this a completed goal), but we made a decision to move apartments within our complex in the summer so that has discouraged me from really decorating our current space further.

Anyway, here are some goals for March...

  • Read more books. I love reading, but have the hardest time finding books that interest me. I have very particular taste, I guess.
  • Wear less jeans. In a recent post, I talked about this e-course by Delightfully Tacky I'd been taking. She's inspired me to put together better outfits for going out. I always want to wear dresses and tights, but always put them on, decide I look too "dressed up" and then opt for jeans. Such a silly goal, but it's my life.
  • Kick back into baking. I miss baking. And with not buying cookies and treats anymore, I feel a bit deprived. Stay tuned for more treat recipes soon.
