Home Project List

Hey y'all! Today's post is all about our home projects at the new house in Jacksonville. Honestly, this post is more for my brain than anything else but I think it's fun to share projects. I was in the middle of packing up the kitchen and I needed a break to organize my thoughts. First, let's take a moment for those beautiful azaleas in the photo above. That photo was taken recently when Josh stopped by the house. There are so many pretty azalea bushes in bloom there and I'm really excited to see the yard come to life this spring and summer. I've also noticed some buds at our current home and I'm really hoping the new owners appreciate peonies as much as I do because there's going to be a lot of beautiful blooms this season!

P R O J E C T  O N E: The Front Door

That red door has got to go! If you know me then you know that red is my least favorite color. It's just not for me. I absolutely love my pink front door and I love the color that it's painted at our current home. This is actually the second shade of pink that our door has been and I love the more "neutral" pink color that it is currently. The color is called Coral Perfection and it was painted with HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams Weathershield Semi-Gloss Exterior paint + primer. We painted our door back in October of 2020 and it still looks as good as new. It's definitely a pricier paint but the results and quality of definitely worth the price tag. We also painted our screen door the same shade of pink and I love it at our current house like that. But. I think I'm going to be keeping the screen door white at the new house because of the white trim and details that currently exist around the front door. I'm really excited to see how a pink door changes up the look of the front of the house!

P R O J E C T  T W O: Raised Flower Beds

Building raised flower beds at the new house is very high on the priority list! I've already told Josh to consider this my Mother's Day gift, lol. I'm hoping to have at least two beds built in the backyard so that I can see the garden from the screened in porch. We may eventually create a similar garden setup as we have now. I have absolutely loved creating The Joy Garden in current backyard and sharing bouquets of free flowers at our flower stand the past two summers. I can't wait to spread some joy in our new neighborhood so new flower beds are a must and those seeds will need to be planted as soon as possible. Our flower stand is definitely making the journey to Jacksonville and I can't wait to fill it with lots and lots of flowers!

P R O J E C T  T H R E E: Screened In Porch

There's so much that I want to do in this area! I already know that I will probably spend more time in here than anywhere else in the house. I have *always* wanted a screened in porch so I can't wait to turn this space into something really special. This will probably be a more long term project as far as upgrades go but the first thing I want to do is change out the ceiling fan to something more my style. I'm also planning to get some fun (and cozy) furniture, a rug, and definitely some sort of swing (I love this one) for this space. I can't wait to sip my morning coffee in here!

P R O J E C T  F O U R: Fireplace Mantle

The last project on my mind right now is painting the fireplace mantle. Just the wooden mantle; we are planning to keep the brick it's natural color. The plan is to paint the mantle white so that it stands out on the brick a little bit better. I'm excited to see how it turns out!

Thanks so much for visiting. Stay tuned to see how these projects turn out!
