a shot of red

One year ago my family moved into Quinby Cottage.

Since then we have been busy trying to make this downsize
work for our family of five by creating a warm
and functional space.

We're getting there.
You can see a little of what we've done
here, here, and here (where she's all cleaned up for Christmas).

We've knocked out wall's, pulled out kitchen cabinetry, painted,
put up board and batten and horizontal planks, and changed out some lighting.

There is still so much more to be done and I've been in a bit of
a diy rut lately!
I knew that in order to get out of the rut I needed
to tackle a quick project that would provide instant
gratification. And it needed to be cheap.
So, I finally painted our front porch swing.

My mom and dad gave us this swing the week we moved in and it's
been on my long "project" list ever since. It was the perfect project
to get me going again.

I decided to paint it the same red as our front door, which I had on hand.

Nothing like an easy update that packs a punch to
get the diy juices flowing!

It's time to re-visit my project list and get busy!

Stay tuned!
