We bought a house that needed a lot of work. No tearing down walls or gutting kitchens or bathrooms, but simple things that we could do (mostly) ourselves to make it OURS.
It always seems like I have a running list of projects in my head that range from easy/inexpensive to overwhelming.
I decided to write out a list and break it out by budget on the chalkboard cabinets in our laundry room:
By writing out this list, I can see there is an end in sight to all the projects and money spending. Also, if after a big purchase (like our new sofa!) I want to concentrate on a less expensive project, I can just pick something from the small budget list and still keep the momentum going.
And it will feel really good to cross things off this list!
Do you guys ever feel overwhelmed by the list of projects (big and small) running through your head for your home?
Also, after writing this post I realized I haven't taken pictures of our rooms in a while, so I'm going to do that right now and will post soon. I'm sure you guys don't care if they aren't finished!
