Do you have those days when you look around and all you see is the stuff you don’t like about your home? Forget about the beautiful pillows you have on your sofa or the collection of gorgeous black and white photos grouped on a wall in your family room. Your eyes bypass the good and only notice the scuffs on the wall, the wood trim you’ve wanted to paint out since the day you moved in and the flooring that really just needs to be ripped out.
Yesterday I had one of those days and it seemed to hit me really hard. Perhaps it was the dump of snow that made me realize I’ll be spending way more time indoors and my yard will no longer serve as visual eye candy. Maybe it was a glass half empty day where I’m bracing myself for the cold weather and shorter days. It’s possible it was my Nate Berkus post that got me thinking about whether or not I was house proud. You can call it whatever you want, but the truth is that there are some projects I’ve put off too long that need to become a priority on my to-do list.
So, where do I start? Today I’m making a list of all the projects (big and small) that must be done over the next 6 months. I’m giving myself this time frame because I know when the warm weather arrives, I’ll want to spend as much time outside as possible. To come up with a solid plan, I’m going to follow the steps I wrote about previously on getting you and your home speaking the same language. Apparently I was feeling the same way on almost the same day one year ago (check the date of the post)!
Are you feeling good about your house right now or a little on the negative side? What projects do you plan on tackling that can no longer fly under the radar?
Enjoy your day!
