House Update - Trim, Siding and Paint, Oh My!

TRIM

Hallelujah!  The trim is….not done.  Have I mentioned that it’s a lot of work?

I do have some good news though. The trim on the windows in the kitchen is finally up!  Oh my gosh, this makes a world of difference.  Living a year without trim on those kitchen windows was awful. I felt messy and gross every time I looked at it.  Literally the only thing left to do in the kitchen is replace the garage entry door and the pantry door (and then trim around them).

Finally, shiplap!

Finally, shiplap!

So, you know those people JoJo and Chip Gaines?  Well, they among a full list of others really inspired me to try out some shiplap.  It’s beautiful. It looks easy to install and it’s ‘modern farmhouse’.

The problem was, I really didn’t know where I wanted it. Bathroom? Living room? Kitchen?  Well, we finally decided to redo our kitchen, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want shiplap in their kitchen?
