Happenings on the Homestead: 2 Big Projects Comin’ Up

September 20, 2012


It's been a while since the last happenings on the homestead, and even though I share alot of personal DIY projects from around my home, I don't often share with you what's happening and what's ahead.  So let's recap a bit... June was filled with my big staircase makeover, July was bustling with tons of painting projects, and August was crazy with finishing the bookcase and the mouldings.  With open arms, I cheerfully welcomed September because it was finally time to get back into a routine of working, blogging, and DIYing!  For me, September is like a new year  - same for you? Let's take a … [Read more...]
