I know getting your home decorated and organized can be really frustrating and overwhelming so I wanted to share my room-by-room plans for my house. When you list out what you need it is a lot easier to walk in to stores like IKEA and leave with what you need, not a bunch of stuff you don’t need (I have done this, I know it is easy to do!).
My House Plans, March 2009:
New Medicine Cabinet
Sink Hardware: 2 pulls
New bar light
Paint: Hepplewhite Ivory HC- 36 Benjamin Moore
Towel, TP and Door Knob/ Holder
Switch Plate (Outlet & 2 switches)
New Bed- Williams Sonoma Home Westport Bed
Ditch ceiling fan/ get over head light
Container Store boxes
3 Certificate Frames
PB Teen office chair
Paint Polo Blue 2062-10 Benjamin Moore
Magazine Holder PB Teen
2 silver Pulls
Hardware: (13) 3-inch pulls, (6) 1-inch vertical knobs
2 closet knobs
Expedit in white
New house humbers
New Switch plates
New door knobs
Of course this isn’t all going to happen at once. Slowly but surely over the next few months (and years!) it will all come together.
Don’t decorate for the sake of decorating- bring things into your home that you love! Carefully examine every purchase that you make- do you NEED this for your home? Is it on my list of things I need for the house? By asking yourself this you will save yourself money and you won’t end up with lots of things that you don’t need and don’t mean anything to you.
