Update: The List

Do you remember when I made The List? Well, it's been 6 months and, as promised, I'm back to give you an update on how I'm doing on the home front. I'll go ahead and tell ya....not so well. As I figured, I have added some things added to the list (in green), taken things off the list (in red) and even marked off a few (crossed off). You can thank my love of color coding for that! So without further adieu....

Master Bedroom:
  • Buy drapery hardware and hang window treatments. See here.
  • Touch up dresser and add knobs
  • Buy lamps. See here.
  • Take apart snow leopard fur pillows and make it into a throw for the end of the bed
  • Buy/make wall art

Master Bath:

  • Paint
  • Add cabinet hardware
  • Buy/make wall art
  • Add new decorative frame on the existing mirror. You probably have no idea what I mean but in my head, it looks pretty :)


  • Add cabinet hardware

Dining Room:

  • Buy new rug...perhaps a natural woven jute rug
  • Find new (cheap) table top decor

Living Room:

  • Add decorative shelves above sofa and accessorize (I'm not sure I'm going to go with the shelves anymore. I'm afraid of something falling off the shelves and bonking myself or Tippy in the head. I might need to go with a more secure route, like a random photo/art display.)
  • Find throw pillows
  • Buy rug In case you're, I haven't shown you yet.
  • Get new coffee table since the old one is now a TV stand
  • Spruce up the existing lamp
Guest Bedroom:
  • Make headboard
  • Accessorize nightstands
  • Hang window treatments
  • Raise bed (nightstands are a little tall but I love them....sacrifices, people, sacrifices)
  • Find white piece of furniture (or something I can paint white) to put TV on.
  • Make/buy wall art

Guest Bathroom:

Craft Room:

  • EVERYTHING! I can't even walk in there right now. It's an unorganized mess that makes my head hurt.


  • Print pictures/art, frame and hang.
  • Find buffet on Craigslist or have daddy build me one :)

So there ya have it! Proof of how much of a slacker I've been. But don't worry, I see more time in my future to tackle these projects since ABC is cancelling BOTH of my soaps! All My Children is being cancelled in September and One Life to Live will air its final episode in January. Considering it takes me about 40 minutes to watch one episode (fast-forwarding thru commercials), I spend over 6 1/2 hours a week JUST watching soap operas. That's not including all the primetime shows I watch at night. I know, I'm least that's what I've been told :) So I see lots of time to finish these projects in 2012!
