I've been yearning to do something new to the house ever since my girls have painted their houses. Kara and Donna both have painted the walls BROWN. Who would have thought it would look so good? I always thought if you were painting walls, they needed to be a COLOR, not a drab shade of brown, but by golly, brown is a rich, warm color on the walls. It feels elegant and homey at the same time.
So I got to thinking about how we're never satisified with the house. We're always wanting to do something new. Or is it just me? LOL I talked Dave into redoing my kitchen. I was sick of the white tile with grout that doesn't stay white. Which brings up another subject. If you're thinking about tiing your countops, DON'T. It's a nice look but it's bear to live with. Ever try rolling out pie dough or noodles on tile? And the cleaning of the grout is a bear. It's yet one another of those things I thought I'd like but learned that living with it isn't so fun.
So that was one thing I want changed that hasn't been done all that long. And like I said, seeing the girls' walls made me wish we'd opted for paint on the walls instead of wallpaper. At the time it seemed a good idea. It's a Victorian house after all and should have wallpaper. But I'm tired of it. And the upstairs bathroom shower needs redone. And why didn't we put a master bath in that big closet area instead of a walk in closet? That would have more sales appeal.
And what was I thinking when I refinished these floors? I should have just left them natural and polyurethaned them in their light state. All these errors.
You ever feel like that? Or are you perfectly happy with everything you've done to your house?
