Welcome to Southern Comfort!

Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I invite you to grab a glass of sweet tea and join me as I (along with my husband, John) renovate our love nest. We're both born and raised in the south and love to share with you some of our favorite recipes, stories and our life. We hope you'll come back often!

Delay

Hi Everyone!
 I must apologize for the delay in posts this week. I was on a roll there for a while! No worries, I haven't gone anywhere. This week has just been plain crazy for our house. John's been feeling a little under the weather, so getting him to recooperate is a job in and of itself, not to mention actcually going to work. Last weekend we were blasted with a HUGE snowstorm which left our house, neighborhood, town, and roads covered in snow and ice. Luckily, John and I were able to use our time wisely sitting in front of the warm and cozy fire, coming up with some fantastic projects coming up soon! Yay!

After all this winter weather we are simply dying for spring to arrive. Cabin fever and dry winter skin have made themselves at home with us and we are simply ready to rid ourselves of them so we can get ouside and get more done! It is very difficult to strip and paint doors on their hinges (project hint!).

We have a lot lined up for the next few months. I love all the comments and emails I get from all my readers keeping me on task and asking about projects I've mentioned but never posted about. Thanks for nipping at my heels, that's what keeps S.C. going! I need the motivation ;) And you my peeps are my motivation. That and the fact that if I don't start getting more things done I'll end up with hives and anxiety attacks from looking at a half complete house and that just can't happen folks.

So here are a few things to be looking forward to (I can't really put a timeline on them since I have ADD and tend to let some projects slip by while others take front stage. You know what I mean don't you?!? But they all will happen):
  • FINALLY starting to paint the upstairs and get it looking like it belongs in this century.
  • Stripping interior doors and how to paint them with spray paint (and they look great!)
  • Kitchen island makeover
  • Before and After posts for installing new hardwoods throughout the downstairs
  • And for a big DIY project, our master bathroom remodel (we've never shown you our bath because it's that bad)
See? I told you we have plenty up our sleeve. We haven't been slacking this week, well aside from the occasional nap since we were snowed in for 4 days. :) Now, where did I put my mug of hot cocoa? Have a wonderful day everyone!

  1. Here's my list (in no particular order)
    - Paint the outside of the house (not me, silly!)
    - Build a screened in porch (see above)
    - Throw away/recycle/donate anything I have not personally touched in the last year
    - have the carpets cleaned

    I would love to go to Blissdom. I have followed it since its inception but have never really thought about it as I am so small time. Remind me of this when registration opens for next year!
