Abode to-do list

Behold, the to-do list:
  • Patch nail holes in bedroom & touch up with paint
  • Install new front "hall" light fixture
  • Touch up ceiling in hallway
  • Reposition rug in living room (need Marc to do this with me)
  • Paint exterior doors (they're black, but weren't painted very nicely by the builder
  • Get heavy duty Command hook for lima bean wreath (the hook I have is too weak)
  • Raise living room curtain rod
  • Paint patio concrete back to neutral color (you don't even want to see the mess I made)
  • Plant seeds/flowers
  • Paint kitchen or at least trim work (baseboards and door)
  • Touch up scratches in paint on kitchen cabinets (another reason why I don't like Sherwin Williams' ProClassic)
  • Clean sofa slipcover (cushions can be done at home, but the main part has to be done in a large, commercial washer)
Completed items:
  • Paint ceiling line in bedroom
  • Iron living room curtains, check Stitch Witchery to make sure it's holding
  • Make something for front door

I think that's it. I've been meaning to get all of this done, but my big inspiration is for this:

Abode is the local shelter mag that is published by Cville Weekly. I have always loved reading it because it's 100% local. Every product featured is one that can be found in town (don't you hate it when you see something you like and it is only available to the trade or in a major city's showroom?).

Cameras will be here sometime between now and the end of the month and hope I can get through a lot of the to-do list before the big day...whenever that is.


  1. Wow, good for you, that is too exciting! You have quite a list of items there. I suggest (in my humble opinion) that you should knock out the decorative things that pop out (light fixture, flowers, rug) first and leave the scratches, nail holes, repainting trim, etc, for last...in case you don't have time to get to them. Most people don't really look at those small things as much as they look at the overall space. And, I was not impressed with SW Pro Classic, either. The satin finish is quite flat, so it just sits there unused. I should take it back, but I'm lazy and it was only a quart anyyway.

  2. Hi Jeannine,
    I don't know if this is off base; but, can you just reposition the curtain pins down an inch so they will hang higher on the rod? Just ignore if this is not the case and good luck with the shoot. That is quite exciting that they are doing a piece on your place.

  3. Congrats! That is so exciting! Let us know when it is available so I can pick it up next time I am in Cville!

  4. Yeah, Jeaninne!!! Can't wait to see the article.

  5. Jeannine! That is so exciting!!! I'll have to have my mom pick up a copy! Can't wait to see how it goes!

  6. I love your blog and especially love seeing the progression of your living room! I had a quick question. Where did you find the curtain rods for the living room? They are just perfect! Thanks!
