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…
(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
