isn’t that what every teacher asked you to write about on the first day of school? well, today was our first day of school, so i figured i’d share my list!
yes, yesterday i shared what we did last summer, but all of my fun projects weren’t listed on our family list, so now i share!
i try every season to switch out my mantle. that said, i still have my summer mantle up even though we’re now working our way into fall…
i love having a beachy summer mantle, but this year i added a bit of color with the tangerine fabric.
i finished the kids’ bathroom in the spring, but didn’t put the final touches on it until this summer – so glad its done!
my parents and i made this adorable 3 tiered tray out of cake pans. ok, all i did was photograph the project, but i was there at least!
i transformed my button monogram to fit my house a little better. as much as i love color, the original was kind of… offensive. the white looks so much better!
i repainted this coffee table
i gave this thrifted owl a little anthro makeover
i did a lot of design/decorating work at our school this summer as well, starting with this lamp for the reception room in the admin office. just realized i forgot to blog about it. oops!
i also painted this globe with chalkboard paint – i still want one for myself!
i took this thrifted $3 table and gave it a colorful new life – details to come soon…
i made this chalkboard with my dad for our school’s office to post our weekly events – i loooove it!
we also strung tension wires above the office area and i hung all sizes of paper airplanes, from 4 inches long to 3 feet long! the ones with the curly cues are my favorite!
i tried my hand at working with felt and made this pillow for a friend’s daughter
while we aren’t any where near finished, we made huge strides toward improving our front yard – yay!
i hosted a small shower for a friend (the wife of our new college pastor). and i forgot to take any pictures until after – boo.
and last, but not least, was the quilt i made for baby ezra!
so what was your favorite project you did this summer? please share in the comments!
