I'm pretty sure the old saying "The cobbler's children have no shoes" describes a lot of interior designers/decorators. It sure does for me! I've been "planning" to tile the upstairs bathrooms for close to a year.
That's why I love having events come up.. it helps kick my butt into gear!
This weekend I put together a list of all the things I want to get done with our house in the next two months:
I've always wanted to host a Halloween party, and I've decided this is the year! But of course, that brings on a list of things I'd like to get done before that.
Most importantly, the gallery wall above our sofa. It's been bare and sad for too long....
The two chrome chairs are being reupholstered and I should be getting them back this week. Also my new end tables should also be coming soon! Woohoo! Almost done with this room.......
As I've mentioned before, I'm going to buy two cheap IKEA jute rugs and layer another rug on top of them for this room. Cheap and easy, and I can always change it out for something else later. If it's good enough for House Beautiful, it's good enough for me ;)
We're hosting Thanksgiving this year, yay! But the DR needs some major help.
I need to refinish the top of the dining room table (the side Henry is on with the cover is damaged), I want to replace the chandelier, I don't love it. I also need to hang something on the wall, and if budget allows, I'd REALLY love to get some grown up head chairs.
I'm thinking these (NOT this fabric.. I want a solid oatmeal color) and the skirt all the way to the floor.
Now let's see if all this will actually happen ;)
