I’ve decided to join Jena’s Git ‘Er Done Challenge over at Married to the Farm. Ed and I have been building our house since 2006, and while we do live here, there’s still a lot to be done, mostly in terms of finishing rooms with a second coat of paint or painting the baseboard. Ed’s biggest priority is furniture, since he plans to build a dining room table, built-ins in the mudroom, end tables, a hutch, a corner cabinet… and the list goes on. For now, our house echoes since most of the rooms are empty, and the other rooms are sparse. I remember when our little apartment was like that, and how quickly it got crammed, so I’m in no rush to fill up our house. My focus has moved to the outdoors, where I’m planning on putting in a berry patch, some apple trees, a small chicken coop, and a bird/bee/butterfly garden, while tending to our existing flower gardens and veggie garden.
The latest project continues to be the pantry, but it should be done by next weekend. Ed has completed the upper shelving and will be adding the beadboard backsplash and some pegs on the wall in the next few days, and I’ll paint the walls next Saturday. Here are some photos of our progress.
I’ve had a lot of fun organizing my cookbooks, kitchen towels, bowls, jams, syrup and assorted farm animal figurines. This is funny because I’m not a particulary organized person, but the shelves are so pretty that I can’t resist.
The shelves are mostly empty for now, but that’s fine with me. I’ll be sure to post some pictures when we’re 100% done.
