House to Home Project #1: Mailbox Numbers

This past weekend I was able to do one of my House Projects and a few other things. My first house project was to replace the numbers on our mailbox. These are the numbers that were my inspiration:

The Husband had some left over wood from a project he had done so used that for my bases. Instead of buying black numbers, I just used some black vinyl I had left over. The paint I also had already as well as the screws to hang them by so this project was free! Free projects are the best. : ) 

Our new mailbox numbers:

I'm wondering now if I should redo our name.... Maybe another day. 

I was also able to get a few more crosses made this weekend, and decided to hang one from our own door! I do believe this one is now my favorite! 

Here are a few other crosses:

This cross above is a bit different. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but I tried to have the crystals go along the form of the wood grain. 

For my next House Project, I think I'll try tackling our front porch. There are a few gaps in between the wooden pieces so I think I'll try fixing that. 

Oh! Have I told you I'm thinking of painting our hallway?! In stripes!! Big, fat stripes. Our hallway isn't that long so it won't be a drastic change, just adding a little pop of color! Maybe something like this:

But probably not even that many stripes. I'm excited! That may be coming up soon as well!! : )

Future Projects!

Recently my crafting ideas have turned to things I would like to do around our house to fix it up a little better. As much as I hate to admit it, I think I haven't really been living in our house as if it's our home. For nearly three years, I've been living here waiting for the piece of land where we will be settled; I've been waiting for the house we want to build one day.

That's no way to live.

We live here now. This is our home. And it's time I start acting like it.

So that means it's time to start dressing it up like I live here! I'm getting excited, aren't you?! I've done that a little bit by fixing up our mailbox

and adding these beautiful green shelves,

but now I'm ready to do so much more!! : ) Here are a few of my ideas (all gathered from Pinterest of course! And a few from Lowes):


These are just a few ideas I have right now. Won't our house just look so cute when I get done with it?! : ) You can see more of my Project To Do List here on Pinterest!
