As you may have gathered, we have a lot of un-finished projects going on in the house. The bedroom, the bathroom, the office, the backyard, the hallway…and the list goes on. At least now I can finally say that we are closing in on the end of the bathroom. Over the weekend, I finally pulled the trigger and bought a sconce that I’ve had my eye on for over a year now. Of course, it’s back ordered til the middle of April, but at least now I can stop agonizing over it. The amount of time I spend deliberating g over things is ridiculous. If I totaled up the amount of hours spent browsing and planning things for the house, it would probably be at least 1/3 of my life. I’ve got to channel my inner Susan Powter and “STOP THE INSANITY!” Which is what I did today when I finally bought the sconce. After that, it was time to go back to my mental check of list of what needed to get done.
Buy two piece ceiling medallion to mount with chandelier(This way we can avoid painting the ceiling. The paint still looks good, except for the area our old light fixture was.) Buy new double sconce for above vanity mirror
- Buy new vanity mirror
- Patch holes and old back splash to prep for painting
- Paint walls turquoise
- Hang new sconce
- Hang new mirror
Once that list is done, could it be so that the project is done? I think so, for now! Of course I’d like to re-finish the cabinetry, but that is something in the future especially when we have so many other projects going. After getting everything on that list done, the bathroom will be much cleaner looking and more “finished” looking that I won’t really even pay attention to the cabinetry. That’s really the trick, right? Fix everything up around one thing that you don’t really pay attention to that one thing. Yes, I quite like that logic.
I did a once over the mental list, I clicked on over to HomeDepot.com and finally bought the medallion. It was only 20 dollars. 20 dollars. I waited a year to buy something that was 20 dollars. This seems absurd to me considering Gilt Group had a Rebecca Minkoff sale of which I did not blink twice at buying a few things from. What is my problem? Maybe it’s more fun to buy shoes and purses then it is to buy things from Home Depot? Only in the instant gratification department. Don’t worry, I already know I’m certifiable crazy.
So now with two major components on the way, I’m getting really excited to see the end. Hurry up and get here April! I am ready for you light fixture! We’re leaning towards painting when we already have the light fixture in the house, ready for install, that way we don’t have to uninstall, install, and uninstall and install again. Doesn’t seem like a good use of time. Or is that our way of procrastinating? The world may never know.
Happy Monday, everyone! I’m looking forward to taking this week, and kicking it’s butt. If if that doesn’t happen, well…I’ll take a nap instead.
