Confession! We pumped through the entire house and accomplished SO much in a very short amount of time.  Unfortunately, we have yet to totally complete our desired look.  Going through the process and looking back on it now, the whole cosmetic revamp was actually the easy part!  We knew what look we were going for, chose our colours and a few extra things and although it was hard labour, there wasn’t a ton of hard decisions to make.

That time has now come… What do we do?

Do we blow our budget and buy new furniture to suit the new look better?
What type of art do we want for the house? Do we want framed art or abstract “metal” art?
What would look good on that wall?
Does everything we choose to put on the walls have to match?
Do we have to stick with a theme?
Where is it appropriate to place personal photos?

The list of questions goes go on and on but writing all of them down is starting to give me a panic attack so I’ll stop.  This project was not meant to be stressful and I intend to keep it that way!  Who cares if the walls are bare? We are the ones who live there and if it doesn’t bother us then it shouldn’t bother others right?  Still, it wouldn’t make sense to change the look of our entire house but not actually complete it.  That was the whole problem in the first place!  We have never finished a place to our style or made it our HOME.  Epiphany… we are reverting back!

I’ll stop my frantic rant there and give us SOME credit.  We have purchased a couple of pieces for the walls that we are actually very happy with but this portion of the reno is definitely the most difficult to make a firm decision on and I have to accept the fact that it will take time to perfect it in my way.  I also have to accept the fact that everything doesn’t happen instantly and I so love to believe.

I guess in the end, we are on the right track and will continue to make our way to the finish line.  There are still a few more things to share with you and I look forward to continuing this journey.

Stay Tuned!

  1. Oh gosh…art. It took us 6 years to pick art for our first home, and the only reason we eventually put some up was because we were trying to stage the house to sell it!

    Hope you have better luck πŸ™‚ Art is one thing the hubby and I NEVER agree on.

    • Oh my lol. Well I am glad to know we are not the only ones who have struggled. We are lucky enough to agree on things most of the time but its finding those right pieces, at an afforable price! Thanks πŸ™‚
