Quick Kitchen Remodel

I was a total slacker all last week. Long pause and sigh. It was just one of those weeks where I wasn't really motivated to do much, unless I had to. For the most part, it was a good week, just not very productive.

That's life, I guess and here we are the start of a new week with lots to look forward to and hopefully we are done with this cold weather and I can get back to checking things off the list.

One of the things I had written down to do, was wash all of our windows. We hadn't cleaned them since we first moved in, back in October, and something tells me they weren't cleaned that often before we got there. The outsides were pretty bad. I planned to do a full cleaning over break, but a fews ago when it was about 70 outside, my husband and I just decided to get out there and do it!

What a difference some clean windows make! Everything looks so much brighter now. When it came time to do the inside, we had to pull all of the slats out of the windows to make it easier to clean. I wasn't about to clean each little square one by one. Too much work! If you don't know what I mean see the picture below.

While we were cleaning the windows with the slats out, I realized how much better I liked the look of them. The windows looked newer, it made my kitchen so much brighter, and the whole room just looked cleaner! My husband is still on the fence about it, but I'm confident he will come around, or he''ll probably just forget about it. I'm thinking about doing the same in the family room and dining room, just to see what that looks like.

I love walking into my kitchen now. It makes me smile! I love having lots of windows! This was something we did not have at our old place. I welcome the openness and natural light. This was definitely one of the easiest fixer uppers/kitchen remodel, if you even consider it that. All I know is that, it was a good change, that was quick and easy, and didn't cost anything!

Triple win for me!

What are some of your projects or ideas for spring?!!

Many Blessings,
