The List

This Fall changes around the house will be in full swing. My plan is to start with the living room because it is the room we use most and is definitely in need of the most attention. We painted it this Summer so it is pretty much a blank slate. I'm excited to start transforming the furniture we already have and bringing in some new pieces. So without further ado.... here is THE LIST!

Living Room
  • buy a rug that has a bold pattern
  • paint trim white
  • replace sofa with this one eventually
  • end tables (add nail head trim)
  • wicker chair re-do
  • pouf 
  • continue floors from kitchen
  • new tv stand, but I want it to be a piece of furniture with a lot of character, but still functional to house the thousands of speakers and tv contraptions we have
  • turn coffee table into an upholstered ottoman 
  • DIY curtains
  • do something to make the front door pop 
  • buy some new lamps
  • paint the living room
  • replace bar with a table 
  • paint table silver (I'm not sure what I want the chairs to be yet)
  • gallery wall
  • hang mirrors
  • paint hallway
  • paint drawers and cabinet
  • replace hardware
  • sew euro shams  (bought super cute grey velvet euro shams at Ikea)
  • make upholstered headboard
  • sew curtains (bought white flowy ones at Ikea)
  • find interesting dresser 
  • paint dresser
  • beef up night stand
  • buy new rug 
  • paint tv stand the light blue greenish color of the ribbon I'm in love with
  • hang mirror
  • take old mirror off the wall
Guest Bedroom
  • paint walls
  • make a tv stand
  • paint captains bed
  • buy mattress
  • sew throw pillow
  • sew curtains
  • create study area
  • bring in desk and chair
  • buy/make shower curtain
  • new light fixture
  • fix mirror
  • paint trim
  • fix door
  • replace hardware
  • paint cabinets white
  • do something with back splash
  • fix kitchen light
  • add hardware
  • repaint kitchen door
  • add kitchen rug 
  • add stainless steel contact paper to dishwasher
This list is definitely going to change and transform over time. Pictures will follow as soon as I cross some items off the list in each room because as of right now its looking a little like a frat house over here.      Good news is boyfriend and I have started our Fall semester and we are actually starting to love it already!      

P.S. Sorry I have been MIA for a while! Wrapping up Summer and starting school kind of took my breath away. Promise. Promise, I won't leave for that long again without any warning. Happy Back to School everyone!
