I have begun the slow process of making the house my own. My daughter and family leave on the 14th and I’ll have 3 weeks to hopefully accomplish a lot.
I have spent I think $75 on paint samples. Not sure why selecting colors is always so difficult. I had hoped to keep the dark navy blue In the living/dining area but in the end I decided it would always seem like my daughter’s house unless I changed the colors.
So here is my ‘get it done’ list before the movers come for my furniture mid July.
1- paint the living/dining room
2-prime and paint kitchen cabinets
3-replace kitchen flooring and one bedroom flooring*
5-paint kitchen walls
6-new sink, faucet, countertops installed.*
7-new appliances delivered and installed*
8-paint Old kitchen hutch purchased on Craigslist
9-lay sod in backyard*
And those are the things I remember. I’m certain I’m forgetting something. With a 50 hour work week I won’t have lots of free time so focus is imperative.
Wish me luck. I’ll post photos as I begin this coming weekend.
