Here is the list and notes from September, with new notes since that update:
2. the kitchen (long story and I'm sure you'll disagree) This is going to stay on here awhile... turns out the tile is going to be much more difficult to remove than I originally thought and since Jake doesn't want to change the kitchen, it looks like I'm on my own. Demo starts Monday and, if all goes according to schedule, should be complete by the weekend!

4. living room This isn't done, but progress has been made. We replaced a bookshelf I bought my junior year of college (it was under $20 and originally intended for a bathroom) with a tall white cabinet I received as a birthday present and I'm a fan. I also steam cleaned our couches (although you can barely tell), we added linen curtains, and slowly started hanging artwork. No news on this front.
6. hallway bathroom I'm almost there... I bought a new shower curtain, rug, and hand towels to start and painted the walls Turquoise Mist last night. All I have left is cabinet hardware and hanging something on the wall(s). Purchased hardware but didn't love it, so I'm back to square one.
8. porch lights Not even close to deciding. I'm now wondering why I thought this was an immediate need.

So what do you think? Do you like the progress?
