It’s kinda pathetic that almost one year to the day that I documented we were FINALLY starting to decorate our remodeled guest room…
…I have FINALLY finished decorating the remodeled guest room.
Okay. So, since is the second project I’ve finished this month that feels as though it kinda dragged on a loooooong time, I feel like I just have to be clear…
I swear to god, I really am the world’s most hardcore “get ‘er done” person. You will never meet ANYONE who attacks home improvement tasks with more forceful determination than yours truly. I have lived in this house for four years and I have now repaired the foundation, tore down and rebuilt the deck, redone the landscaping, replaced nearly all the plumbing, redone the sewer lateral, put a new roof on, put in three tiers of flagstone patio, built a new fence, removed two trees, replaced all the doors and most of the windows, remodeled a bathroom, REFINISHED the new deck that we built, completed a total engineered seismic retrofit…
And that’s not even all. But that’s the big stuff.
Anyway, I am NOT a procrastinator – that’s all I’m trying to say. BUT – now that I’m on to this so-called “fun stuff” i.e. decorating, I seem to no longer be able to “attack”.
I just don’t want an Ikea house, or a Pottery Barn house, or a Crate and Barrel house, or even a West Elm house.
I don’t want my home built on trends, and I don’t want anyone else’s advice – I want it built on the treasures of my family, but expressed through mine and Trent’s unique sensibilities.
I want everything just our way. And, well… it sure is hard to hunt down everything exactly as I see it in my mind’s eye. It takes time.
In the case of our guest room, it took exactly one year, apparently.
But as of yesterday, it’s done. And good thing, because my mom gets here TOMORROW, and she needs a room to sleep in.
Now I just have to do my own room. SOOO looking forward to a Christmas 2017 move-in!
