We're getting organized!!!

We've been working on a lot of home improvement projects lately...a seemingly endless list sometimes. Tiling, texturing, painting, etc. We've been doing it all. One thing I've found is that things are NOT EVER as easy as they make it look on HGTV.
And projects never get done when you think they will. When we took on remodeling our entry we thought we'd have it done in a week. Ha! Here it is 2 months since we started and we are still not done. The tile went down great, the texture and paint went up on the walls with ease. We also wanted some shelves, shoe cubbies and a bench. I drew up some plans of what we wanted and my wonderful hubby set off to try to build it. We ran into some trouble here since neither of us are so great at building things, so decided it would be best to delegate this task to Matt's brother-in-law. After all, he made our beautiful built-in shelves and entertainment center so we knew whatever he built would be awesome. And it is!!!
Matt went down on Monday to pick it up. Now it is nicely installed in our entry way, cubbies filled with shoes and shelves with baskets to keep everything organized. I love it!
Now, the only things left is to put up the new baseboard and new trim around the door and our entry way is done! On to the next project!! :)
