It’s been a few months since I posted anything here. I sort of took a hiatus from house projects in June, which bled into July, and now we’re more than halfway through August. Honestly, I was tired, and tired of spending money. Hence the long break.
So when I bought my house, of course, I had an inspection done. It revealed lots of things like the need for a new sewer line in the back yard, the age of the water heater, and all the little things that were not quite up to current day code considering the house was built in 1964.
I’ve been moved into this house for a year and a few months. I know I just finished the One Room Challenge, but I look around and there’s still so much to do. So when I’m feeling annoyed at the amount of work this house still needs, I sit myself down and make a list of all the things I have managed, largely by myself, in this house over the past year.
I made it! Well, almost. Barely, under the wire, by the skin of my teeth. Literally writing this hours before the official deadline of tomorrow.
Well, there’s only one week left… and I don’t think I’m gonna make it.
It’s a waiting game for the counter top to actually be installed.
Something is always bound to go wrong in any project, isn’t it? Murphy’s Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Luckily, it was something easily fixable this time, so here we go into week four! Filled with mishaps, mistakes, and the little things as we stall and begin the waiting game.
Technically, according to the actual OneRoomChallenge website, we are on week 3, though really, it’s week 2 in my book. I guess it’s not important except that I have a week less to work on this. Here we are, week 3.
Welcome back to week 1 of the One Room Challenge (which I have now discovered is an actual thing, like a legit thing with a start date and everything–it is only by pure coincidence that I started on the right week). As discussed previously, I’m not doing a whole room but rather a project within my laundry room–adding cabinets. So here we go.
Now that the bathroom is finally done, I can move onto other projects, hopefully less stressful projects that don’t involve plumbing *fingers crossed emoji*. So I’ve been on Pinterest for like only a year and a half (yes, I know, I was slow to join up even though my friend had been sending me invites since Pinterest first started years ago and you could only join with an invite). Since I’ve been on there, I’ve seen lots of blog posts about the “6 Week, 1 Room Challenge.” NGL, I’ve been wanting to try one even though I don’t like time restraints.
Just a quick post to announce that the bathroom remodel is complete! It only took an entire year. I suppose that’s good for doing it all myself? Sure.
