Aloha Friday =)

It's time again for Aloha Friday! Kailani over at Island Life 808 writes: "In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

So My question is: What is the most recent project you have either started or completed around your home?

For us, my inlaws are currently in town from SoCal visiting for a few days and we are working on some projects around the house. Yesterday we made over the front yard, and boy what a difference! Here are before and after pictures...
This is the only picture I can find of the before, so its not truly accurate of how bad the front looked!

and here is the finished project...

It's such a great feeling to have the front yard looking so good! It was really easy, just took some hard work and about $75 for all the new plants and soaker hose. That is my most current project around here, let's see yours!

  1. I painted my youngest daughter's bedroom. I know - not a HUGE project, but hey, it's something! LOL

  2. Organizing one of the "guest" bedrooms (that used to be one of the kid's rooms!)that I use for all the inventory for my website boutique! It would still look really "scattered" to someone else, but at least I know where things are now!

  4. Well we installed french doors into Hubby's office almost 7 months ago & they still aren't finished! I want Hubby to finish it but he wants me to. I'm thinking we'll have to get someone a little more experienced than us to come & help us though.

    My next project is painting my daughter's room. She wants pink & purple. Help!

  5. I have to freshen the paint around the window frames this weekend and then I want to begin to have someone place the marble flooring down in my dining room.

  6. Taking the carpet out of all the bedrooms. There's gorgeous hardwood underneath, that has unfornately been damaged by carpet spills, etc.

  8. I recently started on cleaning out the garage. It is a huge project and I don't anticipate instant gratification on this one.
