We have an index card on our refrigerator with things we’d like to eventually do to the house. They include (but are not limited to) updating the kitchen (new counters, new flooring), updating our bathroom (new vanity, tile, floor, medicine cabinet…everything except for the toilet), a new/larger deck, and making our downstairs room more of a room to hang out in. (Oh, I once posted pictures of our house as we were moving in. The downstairs room is the one with the mirrors and blue carpet. It’s classy.)
I spent the weekend moving furniture around. Everything is finally coming together! Last weekend, we moved the couch downstairs, and we just piled everything else into the room until we could deal with it. I should have taken pictures, but it was pretty
horrendous embarrassing. On Wednesday, our new living room furniture was delivered and the guys offered to move our oversized chair for us. That made even more of a mess downstairs. And today I finally dealt with it.
The bookcase has been moved, the game chest has been relocated for the moment (to the garage), furniture has been rearranged three times and the television and it’s stand have been moved to the opposite side of the room.
We still have to clean, and get a cable long enough to reach the television in it’s new spot. Then we can hang (or re-hang) our artwork and new pictures. The room will then be complete.
The best part? We get to check one of our things off our checklist, and we didn’t even anticipate making the room liveable this year. I love checking things off lists!
Pictures to come when we can get our acts together and clean…
