My friend Mallory asks me for house updates all of the time. Mallory is the type of girl that picks out a project, buys all the materials in the first trip to the store, doesn't need help from her husband, and makes some really cool stuff. (At least, it seems that way.) I, on the other hand, am the exact opposite.

Well, I got the package open...

Every time I get started, I think "This is defiantly a two person job. I should probably wait until Andrew gets home." Well, that leaves a lot of unfinished work. Let's take a look, shall we?

Window/door stripping, kitty litter cabinet, smoke detectors, paper towel mount, window film. Luckily, I think that is where the list ends.

Other things I want or plan on doing (at least until it warms up and I can take my projects outdoors): making bed skirts, painting master and guest bedrooms, making wall art, finishing the freaking bathrooms, and adding drawer pulls to the dresser. I'll take all the help I can get. Really.

Please note: Don't use a Sawzall for this. You want a jigsaw.

I just wanted to make sure that you guys didn't feel like I was leaving you in the dark. The truth is, I will get to it... eventually. Until then, I think I'll see what new ideas I can find on pinterest.


  1. It must just seem like I get a lot of projects done because I feel like my to do list is as long as yours! :)

    I cant wait to see that finished kitty litter cabinet, that cut out looks pretty darn good for a sawzall (note that i have no idea what a sawzall is)

  2. I think we all have large pinterest boards of great ideas with every intention of getting to them all. But in reality.... who has the time/money?
    I can relate to this so much.. I think we need a craft weekend so we can help each other with these 2 person jobs. Sound good?

  3. I call my dad for our projects that I can't accomplish by myself because Robby is not a handy man at all, he just pays the credit card bill :) Right now we are working on installing the laminate flooring in our spare room, then hopefully our bedroom is next!!!
