We purchased some curtains from BBB on black Friday to replace our vertical blinds so I'm hoping DH & I can get those up soon. I'm also on the hunt for some artwork for our dining room. Our living room/dining room are safari themed and I'm thinking I want to hang some African masks, but I'm not 100% sure yet.


DH does all of our construction/big projects but he's put everything on hold while he gets his reef tank going. I cannot wait for him to be ready for some fish. I've already demanded a Nemo and Dory. =)

Right now it's just getting the house decorated! We keep the boxes at my parents' house because they have more room for storage, but every time they bring them over, someone schedules a showing of our house! We end up sending the boxes back to my parents' house (they're only 15-20 minutes away) or else hiding them in our car!


Once the place is decorated, potential buyers will just have to deal with it!

Everything?


No, in all seriousness..it really is everything!!!!


I made the mistake of having DH and his friend paint an accent wall in our living room that I think looks AWFUL and will be gently suggesting that it be fixed this coming Spring/Summer.


And then there's our den (where I painted splotches of paint on all the walls) that needs to be painted.


And there's also our bedroom that's in dire need of painting.

Well we want to finish our upstairs bathroom this weekend. But we've been saying that for quiet some time now. 


Heres a spring project though. We woke up to this surprise the other morning. 


Well we want to photo 3236139-1


I believe it's the neighbors fence, but how does this work...


Knock knock: Hey neighbor! Your fence fell and I'd really like you to buy and put up a new one I'm sick of looking into your yard? Oh yea and before it snows would be nice...


Ugh it's true what they say, house work never ends does it?

You name it, it's a project. Lol. Currently our plumbing is being fixed, our pressure tank needs replaced, and then...ON to the kitchen renovation (finally!). I have no idea who decided this would be a good idea while we're planning a wedding as well, but it's too late now:)

We have two projects that we are planning right now...a big one and a small one.


The big one is tearing down the semi-attached screened in porch/deck and making it a fully functional sunroom.  DH has been saving for this and we will hopefully  get a decent tax return to put towards this as well.  Right now the structure that is there is literally falling apart.  We've already had to replace a piece of wood that is holding the 'roof' up and have had a neighbor complain that it's an eye sore.  I agree with her. 


The small project is finishing an extra bedroom that will eventually be the nursery someday.  Right now I can't even walk in the room...I have boxes of junk and wedding stuff all over the place.  We have leftover pergo from when we had the family room done so we are going to rip up the carpet and lay the floor and do crown moulding and new baseboards.  This room also had some wallpaper that I will need to work on getting down.  I plan on doing this next month...well not me but having my friend that does this stuff on the side do it. ;)

Ours is not quite so hands-on, but we have just chosen everything for our new house. We finally decided on all the cabinets, counter tops, tiles, flooring and paint colours. It was loads of fun but I had the most horrendous headache at the end of it (almost 4 hrs!) The poor consultant definitely worked hard for her salary yesterday! Lol

I want to put pavers down on our back patio/screen room. But in reality, I'll probably be painting our kitchen/dining room for the 3rd time if I can ever settle on a color!

Ditto Kaytana... everything....


First project is to get DH to stop cutting down trees!!! Everytime I turn around, another one is coming down! After all the storms he decided he wasn't chancing it with these other trees possibly falling on the house, and plus we live in the middle of the woods so a little more sunlight on the house is a major bonus!!!!!!!!


1) Hopefully soon I can get DH to finish the hardwood floors and install them in the rest of the house. We have been living on a painted sub floor in most of the house for 3 years now... I have made do with throw rugs, but am getting tired of not having nice floors now!


2.) trim would be night throughout the house too!!!!

Kristen - you can send your DH over here to cut down some trees.  : )  We have to do that from our winter storm last year.  DH just customized a shelf for our microwave. 


We have to do finishing on our floors and baseboards.  We must do plumbing so I can drink our water - we have well water and I cannot drink it.  Another project we want to do this year is to sheetrock our dining room along with baseboard and crown molding. 


@TheFutureMrs.Shoe - your nursey is gorgeous!!!
