well my gosh i had a pretty dang lofty home “to-do” list for 2013.
let’s review the list shall we?
i’ve crossed off anything that has been completed.
my “would like to” list wasn’t even TOUCHED.
for the record – this year was busy and money was tight.
so let’s celebrate what all DID happen on the home from this year…with pictures (lots of them so bunker down)!!
painted the short hallway – pantone emerald 2013 color of the year!
& added a new table to help balance everything out.
FINALLY pressure washed the back patio – so incredibly disgusting
revisiting the hall bath – man this room is NIGHT and DAY!!!!
overall i’m really happy with everything that was completed last year.
there are some things that weren’t finished (obviously) and i’m ok with that.
owning a home, updating it, and making it into “your style” is a process and unless you grow money on trees it will take budgeting, saving, and time.
i think i sometimes get discouraged because i see all of these “pinterest homes” that are exactly my style and i want to have it now. wow – way to be selfish and have the wrong priorities there amy. pinterest, as lovely as it is, definitely helps breed discontemptment and greediness, or am i alone in that?
i just need to keep reminding myself every time i pin something that i would love for my house to resemble that it will #1 take time #2 take budgeting #3 doesn’t have to be perfect.
