So have any recommendations for mattresses?
The #2 priority gets a little trickier. We both agree that fall is a perfect time to focus on the yard. The weather is nice, grass could possibly grow now versus the hot summer. But that’s a lot of mulch to spread and Joe and I are disagreeing on whether that should be a hire out job or a DIY job. The idea of spreading 10 cubic yards of mulch makes me want to go and hide somewhere - forever!
And after those 2 items… I’m completely lost on where to go next! I’m all about getting started on the dining room but should I finish the living room and actually have one room completely done? (Is being “done” even possible, anyway??) I need to reupholster the 2 side chairs in the room. I love both of them but they need some attention.
My mom found the orange chair at Habitat for Humanity and I love the vintage feel. I also got the rattan chair from my Mom (THANKS Mom!!) and it just needs new fabric on the cushions. I want to do a neutral on both pieces; I am a big proponent for neutrals on the upholstery and pop your colors in other ways. I was discussing the options with Shannon and she had a great point: if you choose a fabric the same tone as the rattan you will be able to appreciate that texture of the natural material; where right now all you see is Navy because of the high contrast.
So anyone know of a good Upholster in Charlotte? I need some referrals!
For the dining room I don’t even have a direction yet. I want to marinate on that a little more and see if I can stretch my normal design. Some it’s time to do some research! I’m hoping to work on some idea boards to share!
The freezer and the windows just keep getting pushed to the back burner but both are really needed! Believe me if you saw my freezer you wouldn’t believe that only 2 people live here! A few years back we replaced all but 4 of the windows in the house. And from friend to friend – when you replace windows just do them all at the same time. We thought we would do 1/2 and 1/2 to spread out the cost but now it’s just lost it’s place on the list.
So that’s my dilemma – what’s your expert opinion?? How do you prioritize your “To-Do’s”? HELP!
