I have spent too much time watching Home & Garden Television this week. Now I am so full of ideas for both houses!
Funny thing is, I rarely watch HGTV in Richmond. I don’t have a reason, it just doesn’t happen. I will probably start watching it more often there now that we’re starting to redecorate the house.
Here at the beach, it’s about all I ever watch, unless we pop a movie into the DVD player. I’ve watched and planned so many things for both houses.
I learned how to build a frame and install a pocket door. That will be great for our master suite down here, because the bath is rather small and it would save room to use a pocket door.
I learned an easy way to turn a desk into a dining table. This will save us money when we put the house in Richmond up for sale. We use the formal dining room as my office, so we don’t have a dining room set in there. Turning the desk into a table and finding a few chairs to refinish or rent would do the trick.
I will be the first to admit that I am terrible at decorating our homes. But, I am getting better at it. I am so full of things I want to do. I have the extra time now, at least for a while, but not much extra money.
We made a conscious decision the other day that we want to concentrate all our efforts in getting the Richmond house fixed up and ready to sell or rent. Next week, I will get started on painting the foyer and hall. I’m excited to start! Maybe not so much the real work, but that we will be making big progress toward our goal.
We need this. We need to feel like we’re working in that goal direction. Right now, we can’t make financial strides, but there are other things we can do to move that goal forward, and that’s what we’re going to do.
