House needs: update

One year ago, I listed out the things I felt we needed for the house. They were:

Dresser for Louise
Some kind of bookcase for the den
A mantle
Gas logs and a screen for the fireplace
Shutters
A console for the den that doesn’t cover the vents but has storage (right now we just have a long table)
An updated piece of furniture for under the TV in the living room
A bench for our bedroom
A headboard for the guest bed
Update the garage

The good news is the list now looks like this:

Dresser for Louise
Some kind of bookcase for the den
A mantle
Gas logs and a screen for the fireplace
Shutters
A console for the den that doesn’t cover the vents but has storage (right now we just have a long table)
An updated piece of furniture for under the TV in the living room
A bench for our bedroom
A headboard for the guest bed (really a guest room makeover)
Update the garage

We’ve made more progress than I really thought we did which is awesome. What I’d like to see in the next six months – or at least, before next holiday season – are the gas logs. Once we get a few extra pennies we’ll throw them that way I think. Shutters might have to wait until next year, and the den console is a project that is being worked on.

After that list is complete, I can start a new list! First on that one are new doors!
