Over the weekend I took a trip down to Santa Cruz for a nostalgic day at the Boardwalk, a hike through the redwoods and stops along the coast down highway 1. I’ve had some great memories here growing up, and it’s been far too long since I’ve been to the area so with the recent Spring-like weather, it was the perfect time for a quick getaway.
On the housing front, I completed the beadboard & coat hook wall in the garage entryway and oversaw progress on the master bathroom as the downstairs was painted. It was also my first time back at the local flea market in nearly a year! My longest dry spell ever, and one I hope to not fall back into this summer.
As of right now, I’m finishing up the final touches on the garage entry (if you follow me on snapchat @ jennasuedesign you’ve seen it already!). The official After photos will be shot today and tomorrow (Thursday) will be the full reveal. One room down, whew!
Now that I’m in DIY mode, I keep coming up with new projects to add to the to-do list but I also don’t want to extend my timeline (and overwhelm myself) so I’m trying to find a balance. The goal is to have the house on the market by April which is only five weeks away… yikes! There will surely be some last minute chaos, but I’m no stranger to renovations on a timeline so I think I can pull it off. Fingers crossed.
This episode was slightly longer than previous weeks, and there’s a bit less house progress and more personal moments, so let me know what you think!
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the laundry room turned storage room turned garage entryway Before & After Reveal!
