Inexpensive wall texture/ journey update

Journey Update

Happy Sunday evening!  As many of y’all know we, as a family of five (including our dog), have made the decision to fix up our 3,000sq ft home to list and experience RV living for a while.  Why not, right?  Haha!

We’ve known for quite sometime that we wanted something different for us and for our children.  For a while now we’ve felt as if we’re on a hamster wheel and we can’t step off.  Don’t get me wrong, we have been blessed beyond our wildest dreams, but we felt God calling us to do more and be more and yet we feel that “more” has nothing to do with “things”.  It has everything to do with time, energy, helping others, what type of children we are raising, encouraging one another, lessening our stress, etc…  and RV living is the direction we have chosen.

So back to that hamster wheel I was telling you about…  As a family, one of our biggest stressers was corporate America.  It never ends.  You get addicted to climbing the ladder and all of the “things” that come with it make you extremely happy… for about 45 minutes, then it just adds to the pile of stress you have.  We could go on and on about that topic (another day), but the reason I am telling you this now is to say we decided that Joel should go ahead and quit climbing the ladder and step off the hamster wheel.  SO HE DID! Two weeks ago he turned in his notice and we’ve decided to focus all of our time and energy on fixing up this home and finding two new vehicles and an RV to flip! Crazy, I know, but God is in control!

Inexpensive EASY wall texture 

In my unprofessional opinion, one way to WOW your buyers is to make your front entry as inviting as possible.  To me that means bright, open, and full of character.  So here’s what we did…

BEFORE

AFTER

(You can see all of the details for the stairs in my last blog post)

I LOVED the way our staircase turned out, but I felt like it needed a little bit more oomph! So I thought texture and bright white paint!…what could be better?!

What we did was simple… we went to Home Depot and purchased these…

 

Instore you can purchase pieces by the foot.   Which is what we did.

We chose to space ours 17in. apart.

We cut them to size, glued them with some wood glue, then used a nail gun to secure them.

It’s that easy!

This is the color we used on our wall to match the stairs

We have used this same trick in a few places in our home…

I hope this gives you a little inspiration for a quick update or to add some character to your space.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening and as always, thanks for reading!

love always, Savannah

  • It is beautiful here in Georgia.  All the doors and windows are open, I’m planting some new seeds, and packing up some extra dishes in our kitchen.  I’m already missing this view a little bit... ☀️🌱🌻🌞 .

  • I’m sitting here trying to figure out why it took me 25 years to realize that it’s not material things, financial security, or a planned future that matter. All that really sets my soul on fire is the well-being of the people around me. There is something infinitely healing about the process of nature and knowing that He has made everything beautiful in its time. We lose so much energy planning and preparing; and we forget to embrace each and every season. We forget that that’s where happiness stems from. Do the world a favor today: live for the moment and be great. If God can take a winter like this one and turn it into spring, the work He can do in you is limitless. 🌿🌷☀️🌱 .

  • We are LOVING this spring time weather we’ve been having.  We’ve already been to the park, gone out for breakfast, and rode our bikes around the neighborhood.  What are your plans for the day?! What’s the weather like in your part of the world?! Happy Tuesday, friends!  I challenge you all to be a light today. I think the world always needs more of that. 🤗😘🤩 .

  • I never realized how much of a candle hoarder I was until I started cleaning out this little secretaries desk just now. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🕯🤣 This little piece of furniture is my LAST ONE to clean out before listing! 😱😃 New weed guard liner and pine straw is going down as we speak.  It’s getting close, y’all! Happy Monday! .

  • This weekend has been amazing. It’s been sunny and 70°, our doors have been open all weekend, and tonight the kids bath water was completely brown from playing in the mud.🤣😳😂 I’d call that a win !  My parents came over today and we got SO much accomplished here at the house !  We should be listing very very soon. Thank you ALL for the love, support, and kind words on our journey. It all means the world and never goes unnoticed. I hope you all had an amazing weekend also!! .

  • We just finished up our last basketball game of the season and had our banquet!  This mama is so proud of Rylee Gray’s first basketball season!  If you’re looking for us today we’ll be nailing up a few fence boards and pressure washing the house... considering it’s 70° outside. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🏡😂 Yes...Monday we had a snow day...you do remember correctly.  Have a great Saturday, y’all !! .
