When I don’t feel like we are making enough progress around the house – to get ready to move – I just need to look around.
Most of our pictures are off the walls … I still need to figure out just the right way or box to pack them.
Many cabinets are empty – or half-empty – as my china cabinet is. Just my Oma’s tea service remains and a lone cake plate.
The room that makes me the happiest as far as how it looks is MY BATHROOM!
I am SO thankful the floor turned out pretty well (don’t look too close- it isn’t perfect!).
In the last year or so, I’ve also painted the cabinet and mirror trim and the walls (after removing a 1988 rose border), replaced the sink (with a plumber’s help), and changed out the fixtures from white-and-silver to brushed nickel. I put down peel-and-stick floor tiles not only on the floor but also in the cabinet which covered the yucky ply board floor under there.
Just recently I found a new shower curtain, valance, toilet seat thingy, and towels that I loved – all on sale.
In my living room, the book cases are ALMOST packed up too. Those books – along with about 50 boxes of more – will be on their way to Arkansas to be put into storage this weekend!!
And so, I guess I *can* say, WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS!
