Making it pretty functional

September marks 2 years of owning this house, think its time to really make it our own don’t you think?

We’ve done a little bit of tinkering since moving in, a little here and a little there, but there are a lot of “problem areas” and not so pretty bits that still need to be dealt with. Like the apricot walls in my bedroom with the mid blue curtains. Pretty.

I’ve tried the tinkering approach and it doesn’t work for me. I need to focus, do it, then move on to the next task.

I have 2 areas of focus for September, our front yard/porch and our entry/foyer. Both in dire need of some loving. There will be no major reno, we are still on a 1 income budget afterall! But by the end they will be prettier and more functional for us, that’s the main thing right?!

So what am I working with? An overgrown front yard:


And a small, cluttered entry:



Bags of clothes for donation and all, keeping it real here folks!
