One room at a time

I really love my house, and there really is no need to do anything structural to it.

Eventually, we might convert the double garage to create more living space downstairs, and build a carport out the front instead. We may widen the back verandah, and possibly reconfigure the kitchen a little, but all of that is way way way in the future.

What my lovely lovely home does need though are the finishing touches. An injection of us. Something to move it from nice to meaningful.

So, my big project for this year is to finish the house:

And because I'm the kind of person who needs a plan, some visual motivation, and someone to crack the whip, I am going to photograph each room, write a game-plan, then post the finished results. I'm giving myself the whole year - for a few reasons. I don't have an unlimited budget, so need to be creative and thoughtful. I want to do it myself. And I want to take the time to seek out special things.

There, I've said it. Now I have no excuse. Hold me to it people!

  1. I'm feeling the need for finishing touches around here too, especially after adding the finishing touches to babies room - I notice just how unfinished the rest of the house is!
    Love the 'one room at a time' motto - I will take it on too.


Thank you for posting! You've just made my day :)
