I can’t believe we are already in the final month of 2014. Yesterday it really hit me that we are getting closer to 2015. I am not sure what got into me but I went on a bit of a crazed redo on our living room….totally not planned and so worth it.
John and I have been talking about making some changes at the house but we hadn’t really discussed when we were going to do them or if we would actually do them. I kind of took the bull by the horns and made it happen yesterday while John was at work.
Our neighbor came over to talk about our trip to Hawaii and I told her that I wanted to get rid of of our upstairs living room furniture and bring the basement couches upstairs. I was ready for a new look upstairs and to clean out some space downstairs. I figured she would tell me that was a great idea and that would be it.
Well she was all for it and the two of us decided to just make it happen. We measured the space, remeasured to make sure the couches would fit and then attacked the project. I did call John to make sure he was ok with me getting rid of the couches he brought into the relationship. Full disclosure I was never a big fan of the couches and have wanted them gone for oh 9 years.
I figure I did pretty good making it almost 9 years looking at couches that didn’t really make me happy. 🙂
Please excuse the grainy cell phone picture but this was the only pic I thought to take yesterday.
Oh and this was the picture I sent to John part way through the process. I don’t think he honestly believed that we were going to do all of the redecorating and move the couches ourselves.
You would think he would have learned by now that when I get an idea in my head I tend to dive headfirst into it.
I am SOOOOOO HAPPY we made the change yesterday. This morning when I walked into the living room I couldn’t help but smile and tell John how much I love it. There is still a lot of work to be done. Tons of cleanup, re-organization and moving things around but we are on our way to a new living room look and it didn’t cost us anything!
Plus we cleared out a room that wasn’t being used downstairs and now we are making it a workout room. We bought the new Just Dance 2015 and started working out to it last night. We had so much fun dancing and it definitely made me sweat. Our goal is to have fun but still get in better shape. Trying to focus on making improvements now and not waiting for the new year.
So many goals and ideas for the new year that I can’t wait to start on!
