At the beginning of the year, we sat down and laid out a plan for our renovation. The goal is to have the fireplace, living room, and kitchen done by the end of the year. We’ve made some progress, which if you’re following from Instagram you may have seen, but only time will tell how close we will be to meeting our goal.
I’ve talked before about our house being new-ish. It’s about 12 years old, in desperate need of a paint job, but otherwise not particularly dated or worn. We just love to make things our own. We’re determined to move at a quicker pace than we did at our last home (hello counter tops in the garage for six years!) so that we can enjoy our home. Although I can’t say that our home will ever be done, it will at least feel like ours.
I thought I’d share my vision for the great room that I made up to help me choose paint colors.
Cozy. Rustic. Farmhouse. Natural elements like the stone fireplace and character grade white oak floors are balanced by creamy white cabinetry and neutral slipcovered chairs. I challenged myself to add a little color and texture and already purchased the large area rug I pictured. I can’t wait until I’m able to unroll it in the new room.
We’re in the thick of it and it’s no joke. My mind wrestles back and forth between “what have we done?!” And “oh yeah, we’ve got this!” . The expenses seem to be never ending and the progress slow, but we’ll get there. We have to, right?
