Next Up (aka, my husband's nightmare)

Now that I am "done" with my house, I am ready to be done done.  It's kind of like when I first had my house cleaned by someone who doesn't live here, and after she left I was like, hey, this lampshade is DUSTY.  Compared to everything that was sparkly and clean, I noticed the things that were not.  Now that things are substantially finished, decor wise, the bits that aren't really stick out.

Don't get me wrong: I LOVE being in my house now.  I LOVE walking into a room and being delighted by not only how it looks and feels, but by all the things I don't need to think about doing because they are done.

But at the same time, the itch.  (ALREADY?)

So here is the list for the next phase.  I am trying to argue that we should just do it and be done once and for all, kinda like pulling off a band aid.  We'll see if my husband agrees.  Posts coming on each of these.

- Runner on the stairs
- Flushmount lighting and ceiling fans upstairs
- Re-upholster my Nonny's chairs
- Replace master bedroom dressers
- Art in the laundry room
- Switch out the mirror in the powder room
- upgrade the art in the entry

Oh, and a whole-house sound system.  THAT, my husband can agree too.

I'd like to think that when I finish, I will leave things alone for a good long while, until we are ready to redo the guest room for one of the girls, or when we save up the dough to do up our basement, which is currently cement floors and drywall.

I'm ready to just really, truly enjoy it all.

  1. I can totally relate. Every house we've owned the past 15 years or so has been a fixer. It gets exhausting. But then I can't imagine living in someone else's decisions. I still have a few rooms to go and then I'll probably start redoing the ones I've already done. Can't stop.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
