home improvement ideas with toddler in the house

I told my husband maybe it is about time that we would agree to a home makeover because the house looked almost too boring already. It’s been three years now since we moved here but it seems like we still haven’t done much to get past its vintage look. :-)

Anyway, it’s not like I am insisting for a total makeover all at once. I just want to make a few little changes at least twice a year. It probably wouldn't hurt our budget if we would just spare some amount every payday for a home improvement project. Perhaps, we can start painting those vintage looking walls with odorless paint. Then we can probably add hanging cabinets so we can already have proper place of storage for some of the wedding gifts we have received three years ago. Most of our gifts were just collecting dusts in storage boxes and these boxes are just simply eating up a lot of space in the other room upstairs. I’m really all about saving some spaces in the house and put them to good use. In fact, I’d like to be able to put our picture frames and some of our collectibles in one organized place - in one corner of our living room, perhaps. I thought it would be great to have one of those beautifully designed etagere corner shelves. With a toddler around the house, though, I’m not sure if adding such piece of furniture to place all our neat stuff is a grand idea. My little girl always wants to grab anything that's within her reach. Somehow, aside from budget, child-proofing can sometimes get in the way with implementing home improvement ideas.

Indeed, got to consider all the possibilities.

I totally agree with you about the home improvement. It doesn't need to be an expensive total make-over or project, but at least a few changes by buying cabinets or lamp shades or wall decors...I'm into that.
I'm glad you're back to blogging.
