Did you miss any of my posts in January + February? Facebook can be so hit and miss showing my posts to people and everyone gets busy so I thought I might start doing these monthly recap posts again. They help me see what I accomplished that month too – sometimes it doesn’t feel like a lot but then when you recap just what I blogged about it reminds me that yes, I was busy! :)
So here’s what happened around here since the beginning of the year…
January started with lots of organizing and purging. My spices got organized in some repurposed and new glass jars and I LOVE them.
I also completely organized and purged my kitchen – the pantry was the biggest change. I just love my pantry now – it has been much easier to keep neat.
I rounded up a bunch of ideas for framing in your bathroom mirror to help me choose what I should do in our bathroom.
You can see which frame I chose and a full tutorial on installing it here.
Unfortunately for this Georgia girl, the only snowman I got to build this winter was on my mantel. But we enjoyed it while staying warm indoors.
Hate those wire shelves that make everything fall over? Yep, me too. So I did something about them in my linen closet – no saw or wood needed.
I made some curtain panels for our bathroom from a Goodwill curtain panel… but spoiler alert… I changed them up thanks to many of your suggestions. Final look will be shown this week in the final before/after reveal of the bathroom.
And we finally have some brand new, upgraded, beautiful faux wood blinds in our master bedroom.
My goal to work on/focus on a room a month this year is going pretty well. January + February were devoted to the master bedroom and master bathroom and also doing a big purge/organizing of the entire house. The bathroom is finished and except for 2 rooms the whole house has been gone through and purged and organized– yay! But still need a bit more work on master bedroom.
The room I had on the schedule for March is the guest room and I have already been doing some pre-planning for things I need to do/buy for in there so hopefully before month is out I will have some progress to show you in there. I also hope to show you a quick refresh of our guest bathroom. And there is a massive pile of stuff in the garage, so I am hoping that the weather warms up quick here in the south so I can have a yard sale later this month.
I definitely feel spring fever coming on so you can also expect some spring decorating/wreath/mantel posts too!
So what did you accomplish in your home in January and February? Do you have some goals set for this year that you are working to accomplish?
