Can I Get A List Please?
I know I've mentioned my affinity for lists before, and even proposed that I would abandon my list making...well, that lasted all of a week. Okay, maybe I only made it 2 days, but I tried. Now I'm in full on list mode as I work on my Christmas shopping list and currently my house updating list. The house list is taking precedence because 1-I had to start by doing some intense dusting and cleaning of baseboards/molding before the painter could start and 2-I'm really getting motivated by the idea of selling our house so we can begin building!
First on the "prepare to sell" list was to get some rooms in our house painted. We have tried our hand at painting ourselves, but it just isn't our thing. So, we're having our foyer, living room, dining room, and both bathrooms painted. Luckily, we have found this guy that is VERY reasonable and was available immediately. I think that he'll be done in the next 2 days, so then I can begin putting my house back together again. Then I have a few "decorative" projects that I want to do, so here's my shopping list:
-new shower curtain
-shelf for bathroom
-lamp for kitchen
-large frame (because I want one of these. Check that chalkboard! Except smaller because I don't think I can make my own frame)
-possibly a rug for the living room (I need something pretty, but cheap...taking suggestions)
I think I'll stop there because this is going to cost moola and I'm I shouldn't spend too much if we're just going to sell it in a few months.
