Finds and Fashions-January 17, 2017

Hello again! It’s time for another Finds and Fashions…except I don’t have any (sigh). I really haven’t been out shopping or buying much lately, unless you count paint and primer, but that’s not too exciting.



I did take the doors off the coat closet that is right in front of the front door. It’s so close, you practically run into it. I want to remove the insides and the wall in the front, just to give a little more room. There is another coat closet in the hallway, so we really don’t need this one. (really bad picture…sorry!)


After I took the doors off, I realized I could put them together and form a kind of screen in front of the water heater. The water heater sits right inside the door into the laundry room and you can see it from the family room. This at least disguises it a bit. I want to do something pretty with it in the future.


We also brought this big window from the old house and are in the process of installing it between the dining room and kitchen. Can you guess what it is going to be when it is finished?  You also get a sneak peek into the dining room! This is the only room that is even a little bit decorated.


That’s going to be it for today! I hope you have a wonderful day and hopefully I can show you a little more progress on Monday!

    Sometimes, you just have to fool around with spaces. Our coat closet was 12 feet from the front door, we tore it out—and it eventually became a built-in china cabinet for much needed storage. Eventually we built in a closet off a wall edge between the living room/kitchen, which is right at the front door. This makes more sense, so kudos to you for reworking your spaces. Sandi

    Sounds like you have some exciting things going on around your house. Painting and making things new and different is always fun. Enjoy!

    Putting the doors in front of the water heater is GENIUS. Also would love to say i spent my morning also purchasing valspar paint for some of my furniture projects. *sigh* may not be super exciting but very necessary! Love Joyce’s point, productivity is always a good thing!
