2013 Projects--Before

Project 1:  The Built-In
Now that Christmas decorations have been put away, I'm on a mission to style the built in bookcase in our family room.  I've never really liked built-ins, but this one really needs some personality.  My goal is to style it without buying anything new.   I'll post after pictures when I'm done.  Wish me luck!



Project 2:  The Hallway
The boys' hallway is always a heap of sweaty hoodies and smelly sneakers.  I'm determined to organize (and decorate) it, so it's no longer an eyesore.  I pinned a cute DIY entryway bench and shelf on Pinterest.  Shortly afterwards I found this Pottery Barn bench at my favorite local consignment shop.



Since they still needed a place for jackets, backpacks and winter accessories AND I couldn't find a shelf that I liked, we headed to Lowe's to get supplies for building. Armed with a cut list and plans from ana-white.com, we spent about $40.  An hour later my hubby was done.  We are NOT the handy, do-it-yourselfer types and he assured me this was very easy. This weekend I'll paint it, attach a few hooks and hang it up.  Just in time for school on Monday
