I do hope to someday soon to rewrite our journey about "The House That God Built" or transfer the posts onto a separate page on my blog soon. But, for now I am going to share the latest project we are working on.... (affectionately called) the future bathroom. We have been in "The House That God Built" for about 5 years and have managed just fine with one bathroom down stairs. But we needed to get going on finishing the last two big projects. They are the future bathroom and shelves in our pantry and laundry room. All is being done this spring.
My biggest part in all of this is to clean the stuff that we have been storing in the future bathroom. Ohh I knew this was a mammoth project and I had to stop avoiding it. ( like I have for the last five years) I figured the only way to finally conquer this was to make a rule with myself. That rule was...when I pull it out to sort, if it doesn't belong in the bathroom it cannot back in then. I did very well with this rule. It made me face my stuff that we have been moving around for the last twenty years of marriage. I have very limited storage so I have to really be ruthless to get rid of things and then be creative in how I am going to store it.
I knew it was going to be a big project but it was really BIG. One day I moved a lot of fabric out of that room and then into the master bedroom. Okay this is not a good place for it, that I know. So when my husband started to get asthmatic I had to take a break from the bathroom and get all that stuff out of our bedroom and give the room a total wipe down. The next day I had to start weeding out and then find a home for my craft supplies. Not easy tasks but it is happening. In reality if all I get done on my "spring break to do list" is to get this cleaned out I am doing good.
Now that I have gotten this far with cleaning my hubby is now figuring out all we need for the plumbing and wall tiles. I can't wait for this to all this to materialize. Here is some before and after pictures of my cleaning so far.
Oh btw thank you Lori for working along side me and getting my blog to feel perfect and cozy for me. (((HUGS)))
