The bathroom leak threw us off course a bit, but despite it's unexpected arrival, we've been able turn a blind eye and focus on the rooms without holes in the ceiling/wall (said holes have since been patched and are waiting on a good sanding/painting by yours truly).
Like many decorators, I have this dream that my house will look like it's staged for a magazine at all hours of the day. However, like reasonable decorators, I am of a sane mind to understand that, that isn't a possibility. I guess I could walk around, driving myself crazy, worrying over every little thing not in its place or fretting over every dust bunny I find, but I want to LIVE in my house. I have no interest in tip toeing around like my house is holding me hostage. No mam.
I CAN'T be that way... have you seen the things I buy? Where I shop? Yard sales, thrift stores, the side of the road. I take no prisoners if there is some awesome something thrown high on top of a trash pile on the side of the road. I don't have room in my car? No worries, I'll find room. Where there is a will, there is a way...and sometimes you're just given things that you can't pass up...
What? I'm thinking Halloween. I hear it's big where I live...
Although things aren't 100% where I want them to be, I can sit back and reflect on what I have accomplished and look forward to the things I have left to do. So, without further ado, I give you my (semi) finished rooms!
1. The Master Bedroom (which I believe everyone has seen & my favorite room so far)
3. The Kitchen
4. The "Library" (which isn't complete yet. we are waiting on the fox's furniture...)
5. The Water Closet
And that's it!
The rooms that aren't ready for their close up?
- Dining Room
- Guest Bedroom
- Master Bath (also guest bath)
Not sure when those will be completed, but I'm learning to be patient. In due time I suppose. It may be next year! Maybe I need to set a date for a housewarming party???
Happy Hump Day, all!
