A Look Back at April

Can you believe April will be behind us in FOUR DAYS?!? It’s even harder to believe that we’ve been in the house now for two months. I don’t know about you, but I feel like every month goes by faster and faster.

I remember going through school and life seemed to drag on as slow as molasses and now I find myself looking for the pause button. Do you ever have that feeling – the desire to just want everything to be put on hold for one second so you can take it all in? Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to do that yet. So until then, we will keep on with the projects and home renovations!

April started with a productive bang and fizzled out pretty quickly. Brett unexpectedly had to head off to Texas for work and what was supposed to be a two-week trip is now going on four. So that put a bit of a damper on our goal of getting the mudroom, guest bedroom and office framed in by the end of the month. However, I was able to knock out a few thrift store makeovers and do some much needed yard work outside.

In case you missed any posts in April, here’s the rundown

mudroom inspiration

In anticipation of knocking down a few more walls in the house to get ready for a mudroom, we offered some of our favorites from around the web.


We had to navigate through some troubles with peeling and cracking paint.


In honor of patio season being right around the corner (at least we hope), we provided some great DIY patio projects.

We knocked down a few more walls, because hey, that’s what we do best.

We finally finished the kitchen cabinet makeover. Only a couple weeks late 🙂

We found some killer items at the thrift store and made over a metal basket and bar cart.

Even though we missed a deadline or too, it’s been a busy month and with the weather (hopefully) getting better soon, it’s only going to get busier! Next month, we’ve got some more great thrift store makeovers, we’re hoping to wall the office, guest bedroom and mudroom and finalize the layout for the first floor. Here’s to finding that ‘pause’ button sooner, rather than later!

All our best,

    I just love you two. You are both working so hard. Actually, I thought Brett changed jobs and was not going to travel anymore. I only hear from the long grape vine (through the family).

      Thank you, we’re having fun! You did hear right – he got a new job. He’s still traveling, just not 100% anymore. So he should hopefully be home a lot more ????
