Painting Window Sills


Oh hi there! :) We are just cranking along with house projects over here.  I decided not to posts about re-caulking our basement shower or watering our grass seed 3 times a day... not everything in a house remodel is "picture worthy" or fun.    I am not sure if this project is really post worthy either, so I want to go ahead and apologize for my mediocrity.  Now if you are in the same situation as we were and experiencing the "ugly window sill syndrome" you are in the right place! Our house window sills were very nasty looking...


I am not sure how someone could ever think this looks good... We thought about ripping them out and replacing them with new wood sills and trim.  After some research I decided that would be a major project and at this point were looking for the best and most efficient fixes. 


Our windows sills are now so much cleaner and prettier.  :) All we did was paint 2 coats of oil based primer and 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Dove White.  It only took us one night and a morning to finish.  When I say us, I mean my awesome friend Jill :)  


Jill not only is beautiful, but also super handy {Jill - start blogging again, pleeeeease}!


Another project I am super excited about is our kitchen counter tops. We have been working on them in the basement and should be installing them next week.  Wooo hoooo!!!


I hope y'all have a fantastic week and Fourth of July!  :)

Beachin'

Hello!  I have been super MIA this month...  


I think I needed to stop and recharge my batteries a little.  June has been absolutely glorious.  I have "slept in", not needed under eye concealer, worn a lot of work out clothes, been to ikea twice, had cereal for lunch, and caught up on some netflicks!  Don't hate me.  Well, if you didn't hate me already I would like to inform you I am currently hanging out in the beautiful Key West, Florida.


Wind blown hair and all.  It is safe to say that when I get back to Colorado I should be ready to conquer the world {or at least some home remodel projects}. 

One last thing, how do you like my new blog design?  I am in LOVE!  The very talented Rachel Cox at {Oh Simple Thoughts} did an AMAZING job.  She was so professional and I could not be happier with her work!  

Alright y'all, I am off to recharge my batteries for a little while longer... See you soon!
