Mantle and Dining Room Decorated for Christmas

Mantle and Dining Room Decorated for Christmas

I just love all the added greenery this time of year, it’s so pretty and one of my favorites elements of Christmas decor. As I am looking at these photos I realize I still need to order Cullen’s personalized stocking, I better get on that right away!

I have limited time to work on blog posts and most of that being before the kids wake up or late at night before going to bed. I love the mornings when I can sit in peace, enjoy my coffee and blog away. That’s how this morning started. Cullen woke up (for the 3rd time) at 5:30ish so I fed him and decided to get up after he went back to sleep so I could do this for myself because I really enjoy it – just wish I had more time to put into it. Usually I start blog posts and it’s days later until I am able to post them, but that’s ok! Anyway, thank you for being here and supporting me on this blogging journey that is most certainly one of my favorite hobbies. Also, holy buckets, I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving tomorrow!!! Hope you have a wonderful day, hopefully celebrating with your loved ones.

Built-in kitchen Desk Makeover

AFTER:

We’ve been in this house now just under a year and finally got rid of that small tv that was there for the security system when we moved in. Gotta love the classic before photo showcasing an absolute disaster, hah. I am sooo glad this is no longer a junk station. Small changes like this can make all the difference. There is still so much I want to do to this kitchen space. Who knows, maybe this desk space won’t even be here during the next phase but one thing that will change are these countertops! I can’t wait to get them replaced someday. It’s funny how one project leads to another and that’s why we’ve put it off this long. If we get new countertops, that would be a good time to get a new kitchen sink, dishwasher and island. Which would mean removing the peninsula and since these hardwood floors don’t continue under there we’d have to figure out the flooring situation so, there’s a lot to figure out but we will get there someday! In the meantime I will enjoy smaller projects like this that still contribute to making the space better than it was before. Happy Friday!
