Renovations can take awhile and I’m generally an impatient person. Once I start I want it finished right away and move on to the next thing. But it took awhile for the living room to come together the way I like it. We moved in in June 2021, knocked out the banister in June, the wall the last day of July, painted the first of August, built the TV stand in August, bought the rug and shoe cubbies in August, patched the floor from the banister and wall in December, got decorations for Christmas, tried different curtains for months and finally settled on burlap in March, got mirrors in March, installed the ceiling fan in May 2022. Took 11 months but we love it! At least we have one nice room that feels cozy and put together. Not completely done as someday I’ll redo the ceiling and patched floors but not until I do a big remodel and knock out another wall.
