There are a million things on our "To Do" list. Since it's Saturday and I can take advantage of HeRoos' man strength, I asked him to move something. He looked up at me and said, "You're not going to boss me around all day are you?" I laughed and responded with a, "Yes." I'm in the zone and this is what needs to be done... We need to clean out the garage so our cars can fit. There is NO excuse this time-we have an extra garage to store junk in.
Get rid of that scary gold hardware. We are sanding and painting them silver. I'm still not sure what I think. We want to change the paint ALL over the house. It is BOLD and scary (and I prefer neutral colors). Yes, I know I'm boring.
The stairs HeRoos and BM fell down. Any suggestions for what we should do with the cut out in the wall and where to hang pictures? I actually don't mind this wall.
Put together work out equipment-this room is in the basement.
Why does the really great bathroom have to be downstairs? Maybe, I can workout and then shower in here and pretend I'm at a fitness club.
Paint the guest room so when you visit, you won't dream of butterflies.
I'm fine with the kitchen. I love this little cubby in the kitchen.
Eventually we need to sand and reseal the hardwood floors and paint our kitchen table (it's looking pretty bad after HeRoos used it as a work table when he was tiling).
BM's room. I love the mural on the wall.
We have a lot of yard work ahead of us but that's the part I'm looking forward to in the Spring.
We love the privacy of our backyard. There is a canal separating us from that house in the distance. Although, they could probably see us if we decided to streak through the house at night with the lights on.
We've ordered couches for this room (which is a story all on it's own-I love being right). Any suggestions on paint color or decorations?
Our BIG project today is to take down the blinds from all over the house and scrub them clean. They are disgusting. I also want to plant bulbs. Tulips, daffodils, and crocus are some of my favorite flowers. We also need to start taping and painting. Almost every room in the house needs a fresh coat of paint.
This may surprise you- I don't like home projects. I despise painting and sanding sends chills up my spine. I love being in a home that is spic and span and ready to be lived in. So why did we buy a home that needs some work? Well, we LOVE the area. It's wonderful being surrounded by mountains. So far, the people in the community have been everything we've been praying for, and the house has a lot of potential. We can really see ourselves raising our family here. Even with all the work ahead of us, I am one happy and grateful lady right now.
