January projects

I don't know why - but every January we decide it's time to do a minor remodel project on some area in our house.  It does seem like the logical time to pull the house apart - right after Christmas and before the yard work in the spring.  However, hubby does taxes as a part-time gig.  So we get the house torn apart and then it sits for several weeks, until the rush of taxes is over.  Then the rush is on to get it done before spring.  We have done that for the past 4 years and probably will continue.  We just don't learn - and I will continue to complain about it.  Just saying.....

So this is where we are.....


It all began with purchasing a flat screen TV.  We couldn't just put it on a table or piece of furniture - we had to mount it to the wall.  And we couldn't just do that without adding shelving and cupboards next to it.  And we couldn't just do that without making over the brick fireplace and hearth. And we couldn't just do that without painting the room a different color.  I'm thinking new furniture, too.  Wow!  It's expensive to get a flat screened TV - and we got a heck of a good deal on it!

We have a saying in our home - "one thing leads to another!" Congrats on the new tv and all the changes. You will love it when it is all complete and then it will be time to begin yard work!

LOL. Great post! I knew a couple who won all new carpet throughout their house. They were thrilled, until their furniture all looked terrible next to their new carpet - so they had to get new furniture too. Anyway, cute post. I LOVE your idea for an entertainment center. Boy would I like to be watching Downton Abbey on a big-screen TV!!! :-) Thanks for stopping at Cranberry Morning. I'm your newest follower!
