It's crazy to think we've been in our new home in Nashville, TN for nearly six months now! Time is FLYING by. It's taken us some time, but I can truly say we are much more settled and life is moving along just dandy. Now that the majority of our things are unpacked and have been arranged and rearranged a couple of times - we're getting used to the new digs. Which means it's certainly time to take on projects (my husband is rolling his eyes right now I'm sure)!
I love our home, don't get me wrong. But I can't help it - part of my nature is to fix/update/personalize things and this new construction needs a little bit of love around the edges to give her some character. Our first major project we decided to tackle was adding some cubby/chalkboard/hooks in the entry way and I am SOO pleased with how it turned out.
Shay, from Mix and Match Mama, was my inspiration behind the project. We've got a narrow hallway coming in from the garage, but I was determined to make it so much more than that. I saw her picture and thought HA! exxxxactly what I'm looking for! It provides the illusion of a full on entry way with cubbies, benches, etc. - while being more "space" friendly.
Here's our blankslate hallway:
Our next big undertaking? We're putting stone on our fireplace and replacing the current tile. We're getting help on this job ... but I cannot WAIT! Happy hump day!
