Projects I Would Love To Do!

Probably more like projects I would like my hubby to do! :)

We have a small walk-in closet in our bedroom, which is a blessing to have in a house as old as ours. Right now we just have a plain white set of louvered doors, something like this would be so much better!

We just bought new bedding and curtains for our bedroom and I would love to put a display shelf like this above our windows.

Our kitchen is mostly finished now, but the one thing we are still lacking is a pantry. We already have the door and are planning something like this. Only hubby is a little afraid to go red, and we will be using fabric instead of the screening, since we don't want to be able to see in from the dining table.

Also thinking of Spring, I would love to have a beautiful raised bed garden someday. We had held off on this project because we have so much work to do on our house. A girl can dream though, and something like this would suit me just fine! :)

However, the biggest thing we need to do this year is to put a new roof on our entire house. We were hoping to hold off longer, but Hurricane Irene taught us otherwise. Right now, our house is light gray with a red roof. I feel in love with the red roof right away, but lately I have been thinking that a dark gray roof would look nice. My hubby has actually been thinking the same thing, but he was afraid to tell me because he knew how much I liked the red. We are thinking a dark gray metal, something like this.

This is a picture of our house a few years ago in the fall. We are thinking the dark gray roof, grayish blue siding, white trim, and brick red board and baton shutters. However, lately dark gray shutters with a red door also intrigues me! :) Sigh.....................but she will not be shining in all her beauty for quite a while yet!


  1. Your house is so cute! I LOVE metal roofs...I think a grey one would look great on your house, with a red door. That first picture of the closet is awesome...tell your hubby to get busy! ;) Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. I love your pictures. I think your house is so cute and think it would also look great with the dark roof and red door. Those french doors would be so neat to have too--great inspiration.

    Take care,

  3. Are you on
    Pinterest my friend? Because if you aren't then you should be! I love these picks. I love dreaming of our future home too.

  4. all your ideas are so great...but i'm seriously in love with the garden. i too dream of one someday.

  5. I'm on board with all of these ideas. I love the vintage doors leading into the closet. I'm pretty sure I have that same picture saved. We are also dreaming of a metal roof or at least a partial one.
