Fun Monday: Unfinished projects

Lest anyone think we have it all together at this old house (though I could scour the earth and not find a single person who thinks that I suppose), here is a list of our unfinished household projects:


A sinkful of dirty dishes–I list this only because it is the case most every day! 

Scrapbooking–I am stuck on my daughter’s second birthday, my son is about 8 months, and in my own scrapbook, I’m not even four years old yet!

redo-006.jpgExterior painting–We started this project when we moved in five years ago. One area above the front porch and all of the back porch hasn’t even been scraped and primed yet.

New windows–We replaced the glass in our three bay windows but have yet to do the other 10 leaky windows.

redo-001.jpgDownstairs bathroom–We remodeled this room last winter but it is missing floor and custom door trim.

redo-005.jpgUpstairs bathroom–We remodeled this room three summers ago and it also still needs the custom trim on the floor, door and window, as well as some tile that needs to be laid once that trim is in.

Refinish the wood floors–When we moved in, we refinished the office with the plan to do the rest of the first floor, but it hasn’t happened yet.

redo-007.jpgSeveral projects we haven’t tackled badly need to be done but we are waiting for the right time (that is, money!). Number one: Gut and remodel the kitchen. [Okay, there are so many things wrong with this one picture taken from my kitchen. The cabinets are clearly falling apart, the garbage can is sitting out, the counter is just plain ugly and you can see the layers of linoleum that were ripped from the floor]. Plus, someday we need to rebuild the front and side porches, actually do some landscaping, and partially finishing (or just cleaning and painting) the basement for better storage. Oh, and an addition so our kids can have their own rooms, but …

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12
