I stopped in a store today – that didn’t have lumber for sale.
We’ve been waiting for obvious reasons to buy finishing touches (things like door handles or drawer pulls) because it was hard to see how everything would work together on paper. Yesterday was the first day in almost 8 weeks that this house felt like my home.
Here’s some of the progress shots:
I decided against herringbone floors in the bathroom – if I had gone with a smaller tile for the floor it might have worked, but glad we’re doing something less busy on the floor with all the pattern on the wall.
The store I stopped in was TJMaxx (and I’ve had to stop myself from multiple trips to HomeGoods “just to look”) and it got me really excited about the finished product. I didn’t buy anything, I was looking for mirrors, but I think I started feeling like however it was when the last tool was packed and the last truck drove away would be how I’d have to leave it. Forever.
That after the colors were on the wall and whatever we weren’t able to finish: never would be. That this big thing we decided to do was like laying cement over every surface.
And guess what?
