last project(s) of 2012

feeling the need to get a few things done before the clock turned to january, d and i headed out and grabbed a few things to wrap up those annoying but so so easy projects.

i am a little embarrassed to say this....back in 2010 we had a really bad nor'easter which brought water in around our windows. we did a super simple quick fix and didn't look back until now. two.years.later. how does that even happen? curtains hid the damage until we finally reached our breaking point! we had the area fixed a few weeks ago and finished up by painting over some areas that needed a touch-up. seriously, this took us no time at all. well, really it took 2+ years...but who's counting.

next, i started repainting doors and trim over the summer. when i ran out of paint the project lost its steam. somehow picking up another can of paint never made it to my list of things to grab. anywho. we finished painting the doors and trim and couldn't be happier. seriously, this might be one of my favorite projects. the result is so fresh and clean. really makes the wall color look that much better.

another embarrasing project delayed....our front door lock set has been a little off. we would have to shimmy it just right to make sure the door was locked. i'm here to tell you there is no more shimmy-ing my friends! we have a new lockset and feel much better. our little pup is safer then ever.

last but not least. we have moved rugs around our front entryway often. big to small to none at all. finally, i decided on one that will hopefully last. we can open the doors in the hallway without having to scrunch up a rug. imagine that!

i tell ya, the completing of these little projects is rather satisfying! i would show you some pics, but they are rather boring, i'll leave you with a fun pic from new years eve. i will be back soon with a lovely tour of our home...stay tuned!

happy 2013 my friends!
