Poor neglected blog. I just don't have a lot of motivation to wrote posts, for a few of reasons.
There's the fact that the internet is inundated with design blogs, and while I never really intended to be a full-time blogger, I've become somewhat jaded with the whole blogging thing as a result.
Then there's the fact that I've been super busy applying for grad school (I was accepted, yay!) and trying to finish up my project at work before I leave.
Added to that, we are moving so I can be closer to campus.
Soooo, I have been finishing up projects around the house in preparation for moving out. I love the house, but I've started to emotionally divorce myself from it. It's somewhat liberating to be making these updates that I'm not going to be living with long-term, because I want it to look nice but it doesn't need to suit my personal taste.
So here's the To Do list:
Replace faucet and broken soap dispenser in kitchen Plants for raised bed garden
Finish painting inside trim white Touch up exterior paint Paint front door Paint back door Repair flooring in master closet Replace faucets/pop-ups in bathrooms Repaint kitchen Repaint master bathroom New satin nickel toilet paper holder for master bathroom Replace light fixture in master bathroom Replace light covers in closets Move old light fixture from master bathroom to laundry room
Clean grout through out house
Repair shed door
Touch up paint on shed Stain bathroom cabinetry espresso
Fix rotted eave
Organize garage Repair torn window screens Clean and paint air vents Remove knife racks in kitchen
Remove cat shelves
Trim large oak tree
Patch hole in laundry room ceiling
Replace range and dishwasher?
Some mediocre cell phone photos of the living room in its current incarnation. I'm not overly fond of the rug, but it was free and is easy to hose off when the dogs track in mud. And new 8' x 10' rugs are prohibitively expensive. I'm going to take down the Mio wall tiles and put up a 2013 Stendig wall calendar above the couch. There's painter's tape on the back door, because once the weather warms up again, I'm planning to paint it black.
Thanks for visiting! This blog is intended for me to keep track of house projects and the evolution of my husband's and my first home. It doesn't get updated regularly, right now, due to my main focus being on school and research until I earn my degree in Microbiology.
