I think the idea of progress on the house. And it can be kind of hard to tell what I’ve accomplished because lately it has been in small increments and we’re living with it everyday.
I told Jon the other day that part of me wants to buy everything but just set it aside until I have everything for the room so that I can set it all up at one for a dramatic reveal. Not practical, but it’d be more exciting than doing a little bit at a time.
So what I’m going to do now is take a picture of the house on the first of every month so I have a visual timeline of all the rooms, even if I only made small changes, it’ll be easier to see side by side comparisons.
So the front:
You can see where I started to plant some of the extra plants we have hanging around along the walkway. Jon and I both hate the weird bush/mulch area so I’m hoping the flowers will take over and make it better.
We got a rug! I love having it, but at the same time I kind of hate covering up my pretty bamboo floors…
The dining room:
The office (or wedding storage central):
I got a cute little rug for the door so we would hopefully not track the construction sawdust and dirt from the chicken projects inside anymore.
The guest bathroom: (the one finished room in the house)
The guest bedroom:
And the library:
Everything is still a mess from the wedding gifts, and general wedding chaos… But hopefully this summer will give Jon and I time to finally get new rooms to a mostly finished place. Or at least a place where I won’t have to explain what we want the room to someday be.
And I’m hoping by showing the mess, it’ll motivate me to do something about the mess. At least once the Thank You cards are written!
