Makin' A List

... Even if it's a little after Christmas.

Our Little Rock house closes tomorrow, and we had our final walk-through on the Chattanooga house today!  It was just as dated as I remembered it!

We've started prioritizing projects, which are numerous.  Round one of fix-ups looks like this:
-Paint: living room, den, half-bath, dining room, and full-bath.
-Peel wallpaper in dining room (something about embossed red wallpaper is unappealing)
-New can lights in the den
-New hardware on the cabinets in the kitchen, den built-ins, and bathroom vanities (Why brass and faux-wood? Whyyyy??)
-New light fixtures in the kitchen, master bedroom, and my office
-New toilet, vanity (we've been scouring Craigslist and antique stores for something to re-purpose), and mirror in the half-bath downstairs (it's also getting board-and-batten molding!)

Round two is still a nebulous (and ambitious) idea but it includes:
-Painting the dark brown trim on the exterior of the house
-New carpet in the basement
-New hardwood on the main floor
-New dishwasher and cooktop
-Add some sort of patio off the deck
-Paint the kitchen cabinets
-New countertops (SOAPSTONE!!!)
-A master bath complete re-do

Oy, I'm tired just thinking about it, but also excited! When we get possession of the house, I'll post pictures of the interior in all its dated glory.

Happy decorating!
