The Nook

We have this odd sized closet in the hallway. It’s to far off the floor to be a utility closet and there are no shelves so not a linen closet.

When we moved in we removed the door and never did anything to the nook that was left. It became a catch all of change and my jewelry. For a long time I thought it would be nice to build shelves to finish off the hallway look.  Here is my work in progress…

 

I still have to add trim to hide the furring strips and quarter round on the bottom shelf and it will be done! I know you can’t wait to see the whole thing.

Rip Em Out!

Well I did it… well not all of it, but most of it. One second I was just weeding and doing normal yard work, and the next I was chopping down the large pricker bushes.  I didn’t do as much as I originally planned on doing, but I’m very happy with the outcome!

BEFORE:

DAY 1 ( rip em out)

DAY 2

I wanted to transplant all the pachysandra to the side of the house but it was just to hard to dig it all up. So I ripped it out, I know, I know lame. I’m paying for it though, my arms are killing me!

I bought 5 new bushes to plant as well. They are tiny right now but next summer they will look great. Girls on a budget but at 6 bucks a pop not to shabby. Here is what they will look like one day

Spring Clean Up

With it being spring and all, I LOVE working in the yard! So far I’ve just been cleaning up this winters mess.  Take a looksy to what I’ve been up too.

I have a few ideas up my sleeves too, here is what I’m thinking about…

Take a peek above to see what it looks like now. I want to take out the two big pickery bushes on either sides of the windows. They are to big and a pain in the butt to trim up. I’d also like to paint the siding on the peak of the house a light grey, to jazz the house up.  This might just be a memorial day project! 🙂
