The Entry Way (part one)

For the Building a Home challenge, I decided that I would work on the Entry way first. We still have a lot to do on it before it is ready to be put together, but I have a few things that need to be done now.  For this week I have a dresser that I am going to repaint, and figure out what to put on my wall that I need something on. (I am torn between a photo wall, or a mirror. Mirrors just seem like such an entry way cliché). I also need to find fabric to make the entry way cushion and curtains. I may not get all of that done by next Friday, but the goal is to get part of it done. Through out the week I will post updates and what not. If you are joining me on this adventure, what room are you working on?

Our House has a Due Date

For our house that is. Jacob and I have been working on our house since we last summer. On Monday after we got home I decided that we needed a due date, a goal. So we decided that our house is going to be due on March 24th. I don’t have to be in it. It just has to be done. I want to be in the house by March 27th. If we don’t get in on exactly those days it will be okay, but we needed to have something to go by.

Once we had a due date, we sat down and made a very detailed list of everything that has to be done. It is two pages long.  On the bright side, we are already working towards marking some of those things off. (See due dates really do work!) On top of that list, we have a list of things that we can do after we move in that need to be done. Like replacing a window, or adding crown molding to our living room. Then I have list of things I want to do before we move in. Like, making curtains or tablecloths.

Tomorrow I will add the list on here, so you guys can watch our progress.

Have a great Friday, and just in case you need something to make it even better, I am adding this picture of  dog dressed like a giraffe.

I do not own this picture, I found it on Pinterest with no link.
