Oh good heavens Tamy. Your list IS as long as mine .
Number 6 sounds interesting. I LOVE bead board. Did you post that somewhere? Number 14 is soooo me. I don’t care what kind of mess I make when I paint , I worry about it later 🙂


Wow! That’s a lot of work. You’re doing great to get all the things done that you have so far. Good luck with the rest of it, and don’t forget to take some time for yourself!


OK- so I thought my lists were bad! Our house is a never ending project, so when I get fed up, I’ll be sure to check your lists! 🙂
