We made a pretty big dent in our to-do list this weekend…  or, at least I thought we made a big dent in the to-do list.  Check it out:
  1. Scrape peeling paint from bathroom walls and re-paint
  2. Paint vanity in upstairs bathroom white, replace rusty heating vents on either side of the vanity.
  3. Replace curtains in study with white sheer curtains.
  4. Paint 3rd bedroom and set up like a bedroom (put the futon down like it’s a bed)
  5. Wash all windows. (I am SO not excited for this chore)
  6. Hang up pictures. (We don’t have any pictures in our upstairs bedroom and she thought this might make it look like someone lived here).
  7. Move dresser out of master bedroom.
  8. Remove curtain separating Jen’s closet from master bedroom.
  9. Remove shades in master bedroom.
  10. Get bed frame for bed in master bedroom (how embarrassing is it that we’ve been sleeping on a matress/box spring on the floor for the last 10 months?).
  11. Minimize coats on the coat rack, or remove completely and hang a picture in it’s place.
  12. Repaint/patch ceiling in butler’s pantry (there’s a small damaged area that was there when we purchased it… must have been old damage that was repaired poorly).
  13. Stage main floor bedroom as a bedroom.  Remove boxes, set up bedframe/air mattress.
  14. Kitchen: fix falling ceiling tile, add a stove, hide dish drying rack.
  15. Get rid of old washer/dryer.
  16. Get rid of cobwebs in basement rafters.
  17. Sweep/vacuum basement floor.
  18. Tidy up storage area in basement.
  19. Organize laundry area.
  20. Replace side screen door?  (Not sure about this one)
  21. Add woodchips to new planting beds created last year (instead of the mud that’s currently there…).

We’ve done nothing but work on this list since we got home from work Friday.  We’re exhausted.  (Do I really have to go back to work tomorrow?  Where did my weekend go?)  Fortunately, many of the remaining items should be quick and easy (e.g., 7, 8, 9, 17, etc) to complete.

Updates with pictures tomorrow!

  1. I hate to say it, but that list looks absolutely painful 🙂

    Good luck!
