Last year about this time, we were just starting to get settled in the house.
We’d moved in about a month earlier and were still fairly bright-eyed and bushy tailed, riding high on the joys of owning our first home.
Fast forward to this spring and while we may have one or two more gray hairs, we’re still riding that high of home ownership.
You see, there’s something about spring that makes you want to take on new challenges and start fresh.
Maybe it’s the newfound energy of once again hearing birds chirping outside and sun shining a little brighter each day.
Or the joy you feel when you open your windows for the first time and let fresh air engulf your entire house.
Or maybe it’s that first day when you can walk outside in just a t-shirt and not freeze your butt off.
It’s that feeling that only seems to happen once spring begins to shine that makes you feel like anything is possible.
When we welcomed spring last year we had these grandiose plans for the house.
Because we felt like anything and everything was possible.
But as the year went on and life began to happen, we realized something had to be put on pause.
And another something had to be put on pause.
Before we knew it, we welcomed 2017.
And just like that, we’re back to spring.
All bright-eyed and bushy tailed, with a mile-long list of projects.
Riding high on the joys of owning our first house.
In true North Country Nest fashion, a lot of the items on this spring entryway home tour were found scouring the thrift stores and garage sales. I’ve found something similar below, along with some of the real-deal finds as well.
