It's the little things

We haven't made any major changes to the house in the past couple of weeks.  We have been making small changes, which are bringing our house further and further from "ugly".  Some of the small changes:

We installed a wine rack in the kitchen, above the table. 

We bought this pretty bench from Homegoods.  It was only $150, and it's exactly what we were looking for.  Now I just need to figure out what to put on the wall above it...

Matt cleaned out the band room.

Matt organized the pantry. 

I painted a small bookcase we got on Craigslist for $20 (another post on that later).

So we've been busy, even if there haven't been any huge changes.  Maybe we should plan another party to motivate us to work again...


  1. I started with an ugly house too. Even the little things make a big difference. Looking good!

  2. You aren't alone, my house is still ugly in a lot of places! haha.
    Love that wine rack :)

  3. Thanks! We got the wine rack on Amazon.

    Doesn't it feel great to bring a house from ugly to pretty?
