Happy 9th Anniversary Little House!


Goodness, another year has gone by!
When I was thinking about this post, I didn't think there was any projects to add to this year's Have-Done-List.  But looking through my pictures I discovered I was kind of busy this Spring! 

Backyard view through the apple tree.

The biggest projects was finally patching the heat vents! This one is a shared vent between the bathroom and back bedroom. 

Because the old vent covers actually come out over the floor, the floors also needed to be patched. Thankfully I had leftover tile and leftover flooring. But first patching the wall!

New lath is the first layer,

Then a "scratch" coat of plaster,

And finally the top coat of plaster.

The one tile half tile that needed to come out so I could fill it in with whole tiles.

Can you see the section that has really white grout? That is the new rows!

And since I had the tile cement and grout out and I thought it was finally time to finish the half row of tiles behind the bathroom door. I had originally miscalculated the width the trim would ended up taking and left too large of a gap.  

Gap all gone! And it took about ten minutes! Lol!

Once all the wall vents (there were six) were patched it was time for a little trim rearranging! I had a small amount of old trim left over and one 6' piece of new. It was really close, but we made it! 
The white piece of wall is my new patch, the black on either side is old wall.

This wall actually had four pieces of trim on it! I managed to get it down to two! 

This wall done! One would never know!

I also re-painted my bedroom! I finally found the paint of the color I had upstairs and am so happy with the color now!

Can you see the old color (upper part) and the new color (lower part)? So much better! The old color didn't even look pink compared to the new color.

And then I finished a new quilt for my bed!

Mandy and I had a shelf Saturday and took down the floating shelves I had upstairs, brought them down to my room and then put up a bigger shelf for plants upstairs.

We also hung towel hooks in the bathroom! Should have done this long ago! And I love the old fashioned look it brings to the bathroom.

Mandy's new plant shelf. It has so many more plants now that we have had to bring then all in for the winter.

So that is this year's list! More than I thought, I had kind of forgotten that all happened this year! Working on Sister House is bringing back so many memories. It is fun to see the sister's differences, but I am still glad this little house it mine. 

The two sisters!
