I’ve talked about a number of instances currently (as a result of I am so enthusiastic about it) that I am lastly beginning the final inside room in our home (my studio), and by the point this room is finished, I will formally be performed with all the inside rooms in our home. And each time I convey this up, I get a variety of questions from individuals asking me what I’ll do with my weblog after I’m performed with the studio. Plainly many longtime readers are pondering that as quickly because the studio is prepared I’ll shut the weblog.
Properly, that will not occur. Let me guarantee you that whereas I am about to formally completed the inside of our home, there’ll nonetheless be a lot to do after that.
Let me provide you with a fast rundown of the place issues stand as of immediatelyand the place issues will go.
The studio and the studio toilet
This room is an enormous challenge and contains not solely the primary room but additionally the studio toilet. I would actually like to complete this by mid-August of this 12 months (our 10 12 months anniversary of shopping for this home), however I am not banking on truly reaching that aim. There are lower than 4 months to go and there’s a lot of labor to be performed in these rooms.
the corridor toilet
Simply because the inside of the home might be formally completed after ending the studio, that does not imply I will not come again and make some adjustments to some rooms. Lately, somebody requested me in a remark, “Do you ever get bored with redoing tasks you have already performed?” My reply was: “Perhaps you forgot the title of my weblog”. 😀 No. I’ll by no means get bored with remaking, tweaking, making an attempt out completely different concepts.
That stated, I discussed earlier a number of adjustments I need to make to the corridor tub.
This contains (1) new counter tops, (2) new accent tiles, (3) new sconces, (4) new bathe curtain, (5) new plumbing fixtures, and (6) new vainness shade.
the visitor room
There are nonetheless a number of adjustments I need to make to this room, most of which I am certain I’ve talked about in earlier weblog posts.
The principle challenge right here would be the partitions. From that view above, I really like the look of the room. However I by no means see the room simply from that view. I see the room from this view…
And after dwelling with the room as it’s for over two years, and truly utilizing it as our short-term room, the partitions look unfinished to me. So I’ll proceed the hand drawn flower design on the highest of the opposite two partitions after which add white wainscoting on the underside of all three partitions.
Along with the partitions, I additionally have to construct a body for the mattress. The unique stunning wood body I exploit right here ended up not figuring out after we switched from our common mattress to an adjustable mattress on the suggestion of Matt’s physiotherapist. So, for 2 years, the mattress additionally appears unfinished and appears prefer it’s floating. You possibly can see what I imply within the picture under…
And at last, I am unsure I am a yellow particular person. I attempted it right here as a result of I occurred to have the yellow velvet readily available and determined to apply it to the home windows. And whereas I feel yellow goes nicely with blue, I am way more of a pink/coral particular person. In order that is likely to be altering, however I have never determined for certain but.
The kitchen was the primary room I renovated after we purchased the home, so it has been some time!
That does not imply I am able to fully rework it once more. However I’ve some issues I need to do right here. For instance, how lengthy have I been saying I need to eliminate the dishwasher? A very long time! I nonetheless intend to try this, however this challenge nonetheless hasn’t made it to the highest of the precedence checklist. Ultimately although.
I additionally need to eliminate the concrete counter tops and change the quartz ones. I do not know when that can occur, however I am fed up with concrete counter tops. They served their function after we could not afford superior stable floor counter tops, however after almost ten years of coping with stains on concrete, I am performed. I look ahead to the day after I can eliminate them.
I do know we have been speaking about this for therefore lengthy it looks as if it is by no means going to occur, however it’s going to. Each time Matt and I begin to suppose it is time, one thing occurs (just like the economic system falling aside or the banks collapsing) that makes us very not sure about doing one thing that large proper now. However that go to occur. And when that occurs, I will have a lounge, bed room, and laundry room to complete.
Exterior of the Home
I have been focusing lots currently on our entrance porch and there are nonetheless tasks to be performed to complete it off. I want to complete the portray, reinstall the sunshine strips and end the stone skirting.
However there are a lot of extra exterior tasks to be performed! After I was cleansing out the sunroom a couple of months in the past, I discovered some corbels I purchased years in the past to make planters for the entrance home windows of our home. This nonetheless must be performed!
I additionally nonetheless plan on constructing a pergola above the breakfast room home windows (that are virtually fully obscured by this plant that retains rising).
And I nonetheless have to construct steps and end this space subsequent to the facet door of the studio. That is an outdated photograph, taken a very long time in the past after we had that cinder block poured, however that is all that is nonetheless there. There are nonetheless stacked cider blocks serving as steps to this door, and steps have to be constructed to match the fashion of the entrance steps.
After which there’s the storage. This factor is not completed but. It is helpful as it’s, however it must be finalized. That is an outdated photograph so fortunately the shutters are not there. 😀 They have been put in in the home a very long time in the past. However the remaining nonetheless appears just about the identical. It must be painted, and nonetheless wants a completed ceiling and lighting.
The Yard Initiatives and Landscaping
Even in any case that is performed I nonetheless have an acre of land that wants landscaping!! Remember this stunning landscaping challenge Matt gave me for my birthday final 12 months.
I actually really feel like I may work on this for the remainder of my life and by no means end it and by no means run out of issues to do. There is not any becoming bored with this landscaping aim.
Then there are the small tasks
As if all that wasn’t sufficient, I have been saving concepts for paintings and small tasks that I need to make and share and train individuals the best way to do for actually years. Although I misplaced a variety of them when my exhausting drive crashed, I nonetheless have so many concepts saved elsewhere (Pinterest, Instagram, my laptop computer) that I have been gathering and ready for a time after I can spend extra time on these enjoyable little tasks.
All this to say that even with the inside of our home (as it’s immediately) formally completed, and the studio prepared, there isn’t any scarcity of inventive concepts that I’ve, and issues that I need to do, construct, and create, that I can share with you.
Addicted 2 Adorning is the place I share my DIY and adorning journey as I rework and adorn the 1948 Fixer Higher that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has a number of sclerosis and is unable to do bodily labor, so I do a lot of the work work from home alone. You could find out extra about me right here.
I hope you’ll be part of me on my DIY and adorning journey! If you wish to maintain observe of my tasks and progress, you possibly can subscribe under and have every new submit delivered to your e mail inbox. That means, you may by no means miss a factor!
