Home Improvement

Does anyone else love taking on home improvement projects on the regular? I know I do! We are constantly coming up with things to do to make our house more of a home for the two of us.

This weekend was no exception. We started by deciding our blue baseboards just weren’t working. We decided a copper brown would be much better suited for our space.

In addition to redoing the living room and dining room baseboards, we took on projects such as changing out the beds in the spare bedrooms, swapping rugs out around the house, relocating our “dog room”, and installing an electric fireplace/mantel.

Overall, the weekend was a DIY success. We got a ton done, and everything looks so much better. The brown baseboards are on point, the rugs look so much better, and I’m absolutely in LOVE with the fireplace.

The fireplace was awesome for kicking off the early Christmas movie season with Christmas with the Kranks, on Sunday night. It was really great even though the high in Florida is still a whopping 82 degrees. I guess I’ll hold out a little longer before I hang our stockings in front of the roasting fire!

HOWEVER, we are supposed to finally have a cold front this weekend. Until then, I’ll be holding out with my electric fireplace on “no heat”!

Good luck on all of your impending DIY home improvement projects!

    I love having a fire in the fireplace. I totally get the heat thing and “no” fire thing. When it’s too hot to do a fire, I put a few candles in the fireplace and light them there. It’s not the same, but it is pretty still. 🙂
