A years a long time to wait.

When you start actively living in a house you start to forget about all the little things that need doing. The unfinished paint jobs, the missing side tables, the lack of art work just become a normality. I became comfortable with the fact that I had so many knots left untied, and I would tell myself (and husband) that it was no big deal that we lived in a state of in-between.  I justified the unfinished pantry,    the artwork left sitting in a corner and the un-sewn curtains because many other people live in unfinished houses.

But I finally came to the realization that we are not other people and I want more for my home. I also reminded myself that if I wanted to be a "real" designer I needed to prove myself where it mattered most!

So far the list of accomplishments is small, but its a start.
The list goes as follows:

  • Finished painting my husbands bureau

  • Hung the kitchen curtains
  • Painted the completed bay window
  • Purchased a mirror for the family bathroom and powder room
  • Painted the powder room
  • Hung curtains in my daughters room
  • Hung art work in my daughters room
  • Bought new bedding for my sons room
  • Hung art work in my sons room
  • Hung wallpaper and painted the mudroom
  • Bought a dining room table set
Now this is but a dent in my long list of things to do. But I will happily share my experience completing all the above in my future posts. Stay tuned!
