It's All Coming Together!

Kapop. The sound I've heard for two days is KAPOP. 

Kapop. Kapop. Kapop. Kapop. It is the sound of a nail gun  and it is sweet music. It means the baseboards are being installed!

The Big Guy has been working like crazy to finish up the interior of the house this week. 

We have shelves in the linen closet! (Do not make fun of my sheet-folding skills. They are clean. They are folded. What more do you want?) 

The Big Guy even built this awesome little storage rack in the pantry to hold all of our stoneware. Now I don't have to hold my breath every time the kids try to get the rectangle stone off the bottom of the stack. 

I even got in on the action and created my first handmade item for our new-old home. The Big Guy salvaged an old pine board from a pallet that had been laying around post-construction and I painted our last name across it. I am so very proud of myself because I have no artistic talent whats-so-ever. Thankfully, I had excellent instructions to follow courtesy of Miss Mustard Seed. She has a fabulous tutorial on her site. You should go check it out and create your own antique-style signs because that is totally my thing now and I think everyone should join me in my new obsession    


  1. Soon your house will be all put together and feel like your old home - but refreshed and better.

    1. Yes, it is starting to feel more like a home and less like a new house.
