We've been in this house for over a year now and... Well, it still looks like we moved in maybe a month ago. It's sad, very sad and depressing. We bicker a lot about the house and I can see why. This place just doesn't feel settled. Constantly living in an unfinished house is kind of stressful and a bit of a downer. We're not ashamed of our house, but we're not exactly proud of it either. We definitely do not give this house the respect it deserves.
Recently Michael and I promised each other that we will finish the house by this time next year. Sounded like a plan at the time but... I don't know, there's a lot to be done. We still need new floors for most of the house, there are still some parts that needs to be painted, and oh yeah, we still need lots of furniture. Sigh. Oh, and let's not forget about how much all this will cost...
You know, this is why I hate decorating bloggers out there who manages to accomplish these monumental projects in a week and whose house is so perfect and decorated they have nothing to do but renovate their laundry room.
It's like they're saying "My house is so perfect and I am so rich that I have nothing more to do than to pay for custom made cabinets, granite counter tops, crystal chandeliers, and flooring for a room that I don't even use because I have a maid who takes care of all that for me!" Bitch.
But, you know, I'm inspired! These things have a way of going at a fast clip, if you can build up the momentum. Michael is motivated and has that "If I watch a how-to video on YouTube I can do it" kind of mentality when it comes to DIY projects so... Here we go! I think we'll start at the main floor since that's the easiest.
