Y’all, 8 weeks is a LONG time! We’ve been so fortunate to have hubby’s parents let us stay at their beach house for 2 weeks and even their own home for a week but there’s nothing like being back in your own bed. (Even if it’s your guest room bed upstairs.) It seems like the to do list is still incredibly long but I know that the dust will soon settle and we’ll be home sweet home.
My office desk is being delivered tomorrow (yikes, there’s no place to put it) and the tub should be in Houston by Thursday! I have boxes stacked with lighting and door knobs and cabinet hardware, shelving and even circus decor for an upcoming party I’m planning. Gulp. Little by little it’s getting put back together. Trying to stay positive and remember that I didn’t come this far only to come this far.
Finally some pretty things!!
Yes, this is uncomfortable and at times challenging but I know it will all be worth it. Thankfully, I’ve had enough experience to expect the unexpected. Cuz y’all, surprises pop up every single job. I’m not immune to it either. Mirrors break, pipes crack, and bathtubs are never delivered on time. So pour a tall glass of wine and surround yourself with your pretty tile samples because it’ll be over before you know it.
To all my past clients that I’ve put through a renovation, I FEEL YOU! This is for sure uncomfortable but I know it will be SO worth it! I keep telling myself that it’s a much needed spring cleaning and a perfect opportunity to go through drawers and cabinets and closets that desperately needed organizing. And wine. Lots of wine. There’s a vid below that walks you through my house and gives the details on the projects that are coming. Thanks for enduring this with me. Can’t wait to see and post some big changes!
Y’all, this family is so close to getting back into their home after Hurricane Harvey flooded them out. We’ve worked hard and fast to get them ready to move back in. I can’t wait to button this one up. The finishes are FINE! Looking forward to showing you soon!
Aristotle says, “Patience is bitter but it’s fruit is sweet.” Anyone else licking their lips in anticipation?
