It’s time for a progress report on the 2012 Decorating To Do List. It’s clear by now that I don’t get around to the things on the list fast enough before I start making changes and creating whole other to do lists. It’s a vicious cycle but we keep trying. Here’s where we are today.
Get all the art lying around framed and hung.
I finally dropped off everything at the framers and they’ll be ready this week!
Finish* the family room.
Almost there. But things keep changing. Most recently, I brought in this bamboo table that I’ve been hoarding forever and it needs to be painted. So add that to the list.
I think I want to paint it cobalt blue. I couldn’t find any pictures of tables but I did find this bamboo chair in the color I want:
I also like red bamboo:
So decisions must be made.
I also decided I want a bunch of white pillows for the couch. I want some sort of white denim/cotton duck and saw that Ikea has these that look promising:
I’m going to try to check them out tomorrow to see how they look in person.
So that’s the family room. Next…..
New rug for the family room?I didn’t need one after all.
Make a decision on the settee in the living room!Done! If you missed it, here she is:
I also got those new orange velvet pillows and am looking for one more perfect one to finish it off.
A few other things got done elsewhere in the house:
Finish* master bath – find new shades for sconces, get new rug(s),
find towel rack, hang art, add mirrors.
Reorganize closet –
install rack for scarves and hooks for bags, organize jewelry, hang art.
Finish* guest room #1 -finish art wall,

And here’s where nothing’s happened:

Finish* office – hang art and organize.
Rearrange art studio and organize all art supplies.
Do something with the laundry room – possibly wallpaper.
