As of August 27, I have two full years of being a homeowner under my belt. Last year I wrote a post documenting some of the projects I completed in my first year… so I figured I should do the same for year-two! (I also wrote about the lessons learned during my first year, most of which still apply to year-two.)
Without further ado… here’s (most of) what went down this past year in my lil’ home:
I made a simple piece of tea inspired art for my kitchen.
I got a new-to-me light fixture for my kitchen. (I still want to paint it. Eventually.)
I got a new dining table! (On clearance, of course.)
I got some awesome window-mirrors! (I still love them.)
I made my own calendar for 2011. (And I plan to do it again for 2012!)
I painted my filing cabinet… it made a huge difference!
I did a bit of painting with watercolors and made myself some free art!
I built a kitchen island. Yeah, no biggie.
I experienced a frozen well/ frozen pipes for the first time. No fun.
I made and canned chicken stock for the first time ever.
I bought some pottery pots, herbs, and replanted my lemon tree!
I re-covered a chair I picked up at Goodwill.
I painted my master bedroom!
I made plans for my hill-garden. (It’s getting there… slowly.)
Throw in some weddings, adventures, lots of thrifting/antiquing and good times… my second year as a homeowner was quite packed! (It’s easy to forget or not even realize how much I did or how much has happened over the last year.)
Bring on year three!
