As you can see, some things have been done, but quite a bit hasn't been done. What can I say, my laziness has really kicked in this week! Although, before I get too down on myself, the basement cleaning has, since, started today (thanks to Austin's non-laziness), and I've already bought the paint for the front door and bench. Having already purchased the paint for, both, the door and bench means that all I have to do, at this point, is sand both objects, then paint. I'm also getting ready to head out to Home Depot to buy the new hardware for the front door. AND, the garage sale doesn't count against us, yet, as that's not scheduled to occur until Saturday. So see, it's not too bad. With lots of things to do, I'm keeping this post fairly short so that I can get up and get going on crossing some more items off the list. I'll leave you with some current project pictures.
I stumbled upon this pretty, but worn (total understatement) thing at Restore recently. Her price of $45 was even better. After some TLC, I think it will look great (finger crossed)!
With a fresh coat of paint and a pop of color, along with the new cushion I bought at Pier 1, this will look better than brand new:
Last, but not least, the basement. With the construction in the kitchen, it's gotten so dusty (see the actual dust in the picture!). When they ripped out all of the flooring, down to the subfloor, they didn't clean the mess that was made directly below the kitchen. It's a good thing Austin is a great, efficient cleaner; I know I couldn't handle this alone: (Note: Please don't judge; I'm more than slightly embarrassed to be showing these pictures!)
Somebody please tell me that this isn't too out of the ordinary! You've definitely seen basements worse than this... Right?? Don't worry, once the job is done, I'll show some amazing after pictures, hopefully, along with some great organizational tips!
Happy Thursday everyone!
