The bathroom is the closest thing to being done, but even that room still has a TO-DO list with about five items on it. The kitchen and laundry room are in the works, and my living room slash dining room have four different areas with various splashes of paint color on them, none of which were ideal. (In the end I have decided on an off-white. Small rooms seem larger to be when keeping the backdrop light, bright, and simple. What do you think?)
I finally decided to begin at the beginning, made myself an official Get-er-done list yesterday, and found myself more than a little overwhelmed. (This was followed by a full on freak out when I realized I had not added any TO-DO's for the outside of my cottage; the landscape, the fencing, the exterior lead paint removal..yikes!)
While I found a bit more clarity, I now feel compelled to budget out each room on the list, because that will help me to determine exactly where the best place to get moving will be. You might think it's a no-brainer, that I should finish the rooms I already started on, but some of the items on that list are larger tickets. I need to re-tile the tub shower for example. That ain't happenin' right now, because the ugly liner in the tub shower works fine but is hideous, so I am not ready to spend any paycheck money there just yet.
Tonight I am planning on adding the costs involved to my list, as well as adding the exterior plans, then putting the room projects in order after that, and pulling my game plan together.
Overwhelming to me, but incredibly fun at the same time.
After all, you know how much I love a project.
