This whole thing started when a friend said “I want to see more pictures of your house!” and I decided to build a new page with a complete photo tour.
That was 3 weeks ago and that page is still under construction! Mostly because I’m a crazy perfectionist and I want good pictures.
But as I’ve been cleaning my house, taking pictures, and updating that page I see all the unfinished projects around here.
So I started a second page for My Projects so I could update that as I go – otherwise I wouldn’t ever finish the House Tour page.
And since starting the project list I’ve steadily been completing those tasks! Most recently:
replace the garden hose holder in the front yarddone Aug 2011 replace front door screendone July 2011 install composter bindone July 2011 plant something pretty under the guest room windowDone Aug 2011 replace towel bars in main bathroom Done Aug 2011
install new towel bar and hand towel hook in master bathroomDone Aug 2011
paint front door whitedone August 2011 purchase one more CD size bookshelf for librarydone August 2011 paint the door to house from garagedone August 2011
Keep in mind that the list went up 2 weeks ago and it shows that I need a visual reminder of my projects!
I’m planning a more detailed post on painting doors, but for now here’s what the bathrooms are like sporting new towel bars and hooks:
Since installing the dark framed mirror in the master bath, I decided to go with a matching finish for the towel rod and hook:
I bought just one towel bar because a) these were freakin’ expensive and b) I also have a behind the door hook that I use.
One final project that didn’t make it on the project list is a complete record of My Garden, the flowers and plants I’ve bought and my favorite pictures. I have the memory span of a gnat so if these are not written down I’m very likely to forget what I’ve planted over the years. Take a look and let me know what you think!
