Welcome DIYers!

This is my online "scrapbook" to remember what we've achieved in our home...we purchased this home in November 2009 in Springfield, MO.

Click the tabs along the top to check out the house room by room.

Honestly, this is not my dream home by any means...but I intend to make it dreamy!

Latest Projects...March 2010

This is the kitchen...I don't like it.  I took some of the upper doors off until I can get these changed.  I also put just my white pottery items (rarely used, but pretty) on the open shelves.
Makes it look more elegant I think.

BEFORE - Front door project.  I plan on replacing it with something more stylish...so this is a temporary fix.  Ha ha.  (Can you see the stone/marble floor?  I'm going to be refinishing this also...it's got many layers of poly that has turned yellow and ugly)

AFTER - painted Veranda Blue by Behr.
We also have new hardware in brushed nickel that we plan on installing.
It's going to be sweet!
I'll have to replace the mail box door and we took off the brass kick plate.
It was ugly.

And this is the hideous pendant light in the entry.  I'm thinking it's a goner!
It puts out this horrible yellow light that reminds me of a horror movie.
I just am at a loss of what to replace it with...any suggestions?

I LOVE this pendant light and I have been looking for one for a long time.

I want to paint mine white.I found a huge one from and estate but its just to huge for my house it was like 2 1/2 feet long.

Seriously?? If you get rid of it, you have a potential buyer.. I think I would use it as a faux light...

BTW. Nice meeting you last weekend :)
