Year One in Review: August 2009 – August 2010

So, it’s been a year since we started blogging about our new house. What have we completed in this house during that time? Sometimes, when I look around the house, it doesn’t look like we’ve done very much. But that’s the nice thing about having a blog – we have a complete record of the things we’ve bought, painted, labored over, and procrastinated on…

Let’s see – from August 2009 to August 2010, we…

1. Installed sod in our backyard

2. Painted the living room a light gray

3. Put up our tv set and had a hell of a time mounting our tv

4. Painted our entryway

5. Painted our arches dark gray

6. Worked on the office (still not finished yet, grr)

7. Bought a car (not exactly house related, but hey that car sits on our driveway)

8. Put up a new dining room chandelier

9. Bought new chairs for the dining room

10. Bought an orange chair for the guest room (but we’re still not sure of its final destination in our house)

11. Made a jewelry cabinet (and bought all the knobs)

12. DIYed a window shade (but it has not held up well so we won’t be making any more, frown)

13. Bought an office chair from a thrift store (our first thrift purchase!)

14. Painted our guest room

15. Bought a dining table

16. Bought stuff on Craig’s List: a dresser, a coffee table and a side table, and a campaign dresser

17. Painted our bedroom walls and borders

18. Put up a spray-painted mirror in the dining room

19. Painted our game table and actually finished it

20. Painted our kitchen walls and ceiling and our dining room ceiling.

Wow, that is not bad at all. Much more than I thought. But still not enough! I am determined to make this blog-year more productive than the last. September has already been very productive…
