As bloggers, we tend to write a lot about
our new home fashions and
we bounce ideas around about
how to make our homes look prettier, cozier,
more elegant, more French, etc.
I've decided to take a time out
from that today
and share with you...
the things that I HATE about my home!
First and foremost....
I hate the stripes on the wall
in the front living room AND dining room.
When we moved in 2 years ago,
the former tenants were using the front living room wall
to display guitars on!
to match it up so that we can paint over the stripes!
My second least favorite thing in the house
are these terrible cheap-looking wood rails
that separate the dining room from the front living room
and the kitchen from the den....
If you ask me, it was a cheap way to get out of adding walls!
Every time I change my mind
about how I want to decorate the ledge,
my poor husband has to climb up
on the big ol' ladder and spend about
40 minutes listening to me say things like
"now stack that on the left"
"turn that on its side"
"scoot that over in front of the..."
you get the point...
I also hate the fact that I have a
teeny-tiny laundry room.
It's stuck between the hallway
and the door/steps to the basement.
So you see, the room is the size of a small bathroom
and has a door on each side of it.
There's barely room to move in there
without closing yourself in first.
Other than these things and the fact that
I want to paint my kitchen and bathroom cabinets white.
(and add a frame around the big ol' bathroom mirror)
I LOVE MY HOME!
I've found ways to work around its "flaws",
but I sure would like to fix them...
