Naptime

This is what Mommy has been doing during naptime {she probably should be sleeping too but oh well!}......

I hate our carpeted stairs but putting in hardwoods on a staircase is way to expensive.  I may have found an alternative!  Stained treads with white risers - beautiful!  The banister needs to be stained darker anyways....  :)


We got the idea to stain our banister from this blog - Centsational Girl.  She recently redid her laundry room too and I love it!  Since our laundry room shares a home with the downstairs bathroom ours won't look exactly like this but I love the concept and the colors.


I posted this picture awhile ago.  I still am in need of a new front door {not to mention new windows and a new roof....}.  I want to install a new front door and figure out how to add dimension to the front of our very boring house.  {Any suggestions are welcome!}




One of the bigger projects I want to tackle is the kitchen.  Our cabinets need a facelift and the cheap laminate countertop needs to go!  I really would like a softer and brighter look in the kitchen.


And then there is the master bath.  Where do I even start?  This project won't probably happen for awhile - mostly because we have no idea where to start.  But we want to open it up, get rid of the ugly builder grade sink {replace with something similar to the above picture}, and update the shower somehow. 




Obviously we have been a bit preoccupied but I really want to get going on some projects soon!  I'm thinking the stairs might be a good place to start.....
Naptime is over!  Back to reality.  :)

First I would like to know where you get this energy and if I can have some.
Second- give me ideas for MY house during the next naptime :)

okay, when I saw the first picture, I thought it was your house and was wondering how you were going to change around your stairs...because it seemed like what you wanted to do was what you already had...
I caught on with picture #2 :)

great ideas though...don't start too many of them at the same time ;)

Sorry for the confusion, Alison! My brain isn't working 100% these days. :) These are just my dreams for our house - I only have enough energy to plan at the moment. None of the projects are going to be started anytime soon!
