I’m completely overwhelmed with this house and all of the things I want to do to it. That’s why I’m jumping from project to project instead of seeing each room through to the end. My brain is scattered and on overload. I don’t have big chunks of time right now and I don’t have big chunks of money, either. My new plan of attack: ditch methodical, strategic, and thorough house updating and just DO something…anything to make the house better than it was before. It doesn’t matter what!
Today I worked on our entry way from the garage to the kitchen.
A really disgusting before, mucky cat door included:
These stairs have looked like this from the day we moved in. Eeew. Every day I step on that wretched carpet it gives me the heebie jeebies. See that white crap in the corner? WHAT IS THAT?
(a close up)
During nap time, I ripped out the blue carpet and carpet pad and threw it away. It was caked with yucks! I plopped down a rug and that’s it.
The after – better but far from great:
I went ahead and wiped down the door too. It was splattered with food. The floor needs a major scrubbing but it’ll just have to wait.
Sorry this post was so uninspiring. It’s my way.
