In addition to the mess, the other reason I was procrastinating was because I really wanted to get the decor just right. I've come to realise that it could be years before that happens so I threw that idea out the window. You'll notice a lack of things on the shelving unit but that's because anything on the lower shelves is free game for little hands. I also want a big piece of art for the dining area but who knows when I'll find just the right thing that I can afford. I have dreams of a house with big plants, large vases and other beautiful decor items but I figure I'm at least 2 years away from even thinking about those kinds of things. We also need to paint the ceiling so it's a better match to the wall color. Originally I thought we would keep what they had before but it turns out it's too dark for the new wall color. I had hoped to have someone come in and do it but it was way too expensive. I will eventually get around to doing it myself but it won't be any time soon. Who looks at the ceiling anyway right?
I've also just finished Isaac's room. I ran with the Thomas the Train bed he inherited from Oliver and tried to build around that. I still feel like it's not done, it's missing something but I haven't found anything that I feel will put the finishing touches on it. I don't even know what I want but I'm sure I'll know it when I see it. Or maybe O's room just set the standard way too high. I love the colors and the train signs and tracks so over all I'm very pleased.
The next room on the agenda: Our bedroom and bathroom.
