Mudroom Makeover

In preparing to list the house, I've been busy with home projects. Some more fun than others. This one started out not-so-fun....well, actually it ended not-so-fun too, but it IS fun!

The laundry/utility/mudroom received a much needed face lift.

From this....

To this....

Although it's dark and rainy out there, it's bright and sunny in here! Ahhh, makes me happy!

For Sale By Owner

The house is officially FOR SALE! I listed it on Zillow this past weekend and held the first open house on Sunday.


If you know anyone looking for a cheery home in the Wichita area, please send them my way. 749nwestridge.blogspot.com has a ton of photos, as does Zillow.

Birthday fun

My family met at Watson Park for my birthday last week. We had a picnic dinner, rode the train, pedaled boats, and soared high on the swings.

  It was my littlest nephew's first train ride and swing. I love being part of their 'firsts'.

Basketball Backboard Birthday

Quick Update: Yes, I'm still in Kansas. I have been working like crazy on the house which has given me a lot of time to think. I finally found an awesome renter, but within a week of finding her, I had processed and reprocessed the possibilities and decided to not rent it anymore. I am finishing up the projects (hopefully this week) and will be putting it up for sale. I love my little house and it makes me sad to think I won't be able to enjoy it for much longer, but I can't take it with me. I will just have to enjoy it while I can!

Today is my birthday. Funny thing, I finished fixing my tore up basketball backboard today, which I had originally painted 5 years ago on this day. My last renters must have been the firsts to really use it. It was shredded on the right side where the layup would have hit.

*cleaned up a bit*

I decided not to look at the original pics and just freehand a new 'design' on it. I didn't have all of the same colors so it's not as balanced as it use to be, but I'm calling it good.

And just for fun... here's the original design.

Other birthday fun to follow. =)
