The Chicken or the Egg

living room

So many projects are hinging on other projects around here. The living room hasn’t been painted because I want it to complement the wallpaper for the dining room (which hasn’t been chosen yet). The dining room is in shambles because the kitchen cabinets (not yet assembled) are in there. The kitchen has stalled because I want to paint the ceiling to start, but I haven’t picked a light fixture (I may be changing the placement).

Things are not much better upstairs. None of my clothes are put away because we haven’t built the new closet/wardrobe yet. That hasn’t been done because we want to paint the bedroom first, but of course we’re waiting to do that because we might take up the carpet (and therefore the baseboards too). And the painting of the library/hall hasn’t continued for two reasons: there are clothes strewn about, and I haven’t decided what to do for the ceiling color.

*sigh* …so I guess I need to pick a light(s) for the kitchen, and decide what to do about the bedroom floor.

    oh, i’m with you! i’m currently going through the same thing… except we are redoing the entire house, which was completely gutted. still, no kitchen cabinets and lots to be done! we still need to buy furniture and just about everything to make it a home.

    anyway, i’ve been really enjoying your blog and have been loving your colors and choices. i can only daydream about being as far as along as you are!

    oh, definitely pull the carpet! :)

    My husband and I just moved into our first home and have been living among boxes for 2 weeks now. I haven’t purchased a rug because I want it to bring in the color of the couch, which hasn’t been picked yet. Oh, and there’s a little thing called a budget I have to manage. But, we are all very lucky to have these problems!
