I have read several blogs this past week where people have listed their house goals for the year. I enjoy seeing every one's list and realizing that, like me, they struggle to get a room done. There were lots of goals about finishing touches. In this house we set quarterly goals. We dream of the day that the house is on the back burner of our to-do-list, but for now we are in a time crunch to finish up our painting before spring comes and we are distracted by all the landscaping that needs to be done. So here are our goals for January, February and March.
We have a pretty good start on the master bedroom. Here is a sneak peak at what my husband was busy doing this weekend. I have just a few more things to get...
- Find a side table for Todd's side of the bed
- buy white sheets
- find artwork for above side table
When we moved into this house I thought for sure I would keep the vintage wallpaper in the boy's room. Have you ever loved something, loved it, loved it, loved it....hate it, have to take it down like yesterday! It hit me on Thursday. I rented the steamer on Friday, and four hours later the buffalo were gone. I still have a lot a prep work left to do. This weekend there should be paint on the walls. We are up in the air about wainscoting. We can't decide if we have the energy to do it right now or wait until the fall.
- paint walls
- buy two book shelves
- find/buy antique dresser
- buy storage unit for closet
- personalize an area for each boy
The boy could use something on the walls don't you think?
- Make/find/shop house for something on the walls
- paint table and chair for a cozy play corner
My most treasured space needs some TLC
- paint walls
- rug for couch area
- paint coffee table
- round rug for table area
- ottoman for chair in corner
- lamp for chair in corner
- some sort of window coverings???
- pillow and throw for fabric couch
- install tin ceiling
And my forever project. One appliance down and three more to go. There is not enough room on this blog to list what is needed. Needless to say, it will be the turtle of the home improvement race, but we are moving forward. That's a good thing.
On to my Monday nonsense.
Asher used to call nonsense nonesense when he was little. He also used to say "Look Dad none hands!" when he was peeing. That made a different sort of mess in the bathroom then the one pictured above ;)
Does anyone else have a bathroom that looks like this 30 seconds after they clean it. What the heck is up with all the paste people? I yell around all the time about the paste! Makes no sense...it's nonesense!
