I swear, I spent a good part of my weekend going through my nemisis, the "box room". You'd think that would be enough time. Well, it isn't!
This is all I have to show for my efforts.
I guess there was a reason we stuffed all those miscellaneous boxes in there and shut the door for the past 10 months. Its taking me forever to go through it all.
I've thrown away everything that is one step from junk. I've put away everything that had a home like various craft supplies and clothing. Now I have to figure out a home for the random things we're keeping and find a new home for the things that are too good to throw away.
Part of the problem is that I have a few choice things that were purchased for the renovation but didn't fit/ wasn't necessary/ got left behind in the fray. Im sure anyone else who has finished a renovation has a similar collection of brand new goodies that cost too damn much to just throw away! I think its time we just admit we aren't going to be using these and they find a new address. Examples include this chandelier going to a good friend for her new apartment, this pair of Pottery Barn sconces awaiting bids on ebay, etc.. Yet to be decided is the vintage light fixture I found at a flea market and never used as well as a mini library of home design books that I don't really need anymore.
Hey, at least I can see the floor now!
Keeping with the idea that I must stay motivated to get my projects finished, I am posting my 2009 house to-do list.
I guess I'll have to check on this next January to see how far I've come.
Hope everyone has had a more productive weekend than I have!
