This weekend we're starting work on a big honey-do list of projects around our house. We've lived in our home for eight years (which is the longest we've ever stayed in one place), and while the house was new when we bought it, it's in need of a little TLC!
So, we've made a list to start tackling some of these projects (we're hoping to knock out a bunch this weekend ~ we'll see . . .) and maybe it'll motivate your family too to get started if you're in the same place. Here's what's on our list (some of these are things that have to be done, and a few are me just dreaming . . . )
Re-stain front door
- Clean and paint front porch rocking chairs
- Paint front porch swing
- Fix front porch railing (this one's a big job ~ yikes!)
- Paint/touch up siding
- Re-stain deck
- Get a new light bulb for the refrigerator
- Sweep out cobwebs on the front porch
- Get fans for the front porch (maybe?)
- Recover dining room chairs
Cut down front tree(it was dead ~ my son tackled that one this morning)
- Replace tree in front yard
- Re-paint mailbox
- Paint tables for front porch
- Tile/brick/add something? to the front porch
- Get new kitchen curtains
- Re-paint guest bathroom
- Paint kids bathroom
- Update playroom
(I also love these blue ones for $23 on Amazon, and think they would look cute with white or black chairs!)
I'd love to hear your suggestions . . . I know last night over on Facebook folks were strongly pulling for the white chairs, but I think I'm going to try one of the big chairs in black before making a decision. I'll update you next week with how it looks!

Yes, it does! Thanks! 🙂
Where did you get your rocking chairs? I’ve been wanting to put *something* on our front porch for awhile, but the rockers I’ve seen are just so expensive! And the ones I’ve seen on Craigslist just look rickety. 🙂
My husband bought them for me from Cracker Barrel for Mother’s Day gifts, so it’s been several years to get them all ~ they have held up really well (the oldest one was the first one I got for my 10 year old’s nursery ~ obviously it’s survived 10 years!) This is the first time we’ve re-painted any of them and while they definitely need it now, I figure they’ve done pretty well after surviving the last 8 years outside. Hope that helps! 🙂
White is pretty, but I think black would just kick it up to the next level. Go black!
Thanks Jen! We’ve been painting all afternoon…. have one more coat to do and then we’ll see!!! 🙂
