Yesterday I wrote about how I save time.
And although I can be very organized and completely time managed in some areas of my life, I definitely fail in others.
One of my downfalls is when it comes to making decisions on house projects!
Sure, I have all kinds of ideas.
Just take one look at my Pinterest boards and you will see that I have plenty of inspiration.
Like most of us, I have a very clear understanding of what I like and don’t like.
One problem is that I like too much!
Also, I have a problem focusing on one area of my home.
There have been times on my blog when I have asked you for your advice on something….and then instead of tackling the project, I move onto another one! Here are a couple examples:
This post was written October 17, 2011! Yes, 2011….Have I added plantation shutters like I had talked about?….No.
And I have yet to change my builder grade fireplace to a stone one…
It’s not that I don’t value the opinions of all you talented bloggers out there, it’s just me. I can’t commit sometimes so I move onto something else! Organizing a closet or a cabinet is so much easier for me, plus it is a way to get instant gratification on a project!
There have been times, when it appeared I was going to commit – like when I made a whole design board for my office – Office Inspiration from Ballard. Have I started on that room yet? No. I haven’t even replaced the carpet with hardwood floors which I also babbled on about a few months ago!
I also haven’t even finished the Laundry Room tweaking although I was SO close on that one!
I realized I better get started on some of these past projects before I start dreaming about new ones. I almost wrote a post today about how I want to change my kitchen. Yes, I had a painter come in the other day to give me an estimate on painting the cabinets. She is supposed to get back to me and then I will have another whole list of decisions I have to make. I know, pathetic. I think I must lack some kind of decision making skills.
I just have to focus and not get so caught up in too many things at once. I do it with my blog sometimes too. I always read all your comments and try to respond back with emails and visits. Then I get caught up reading your blogs, drooling over all your talented decorating and laughing over your entertaining writing. Before I know it, I forget who I actually responded to and who I didn’t!
Today, I made the decision.
I am going to get moving on some of those projects listed above!
This morning I called the hard wood floor installer and he is scheduled to stop by Friday morning to give me the estimate to install the floors AND to paint my office! I am 99 percent sure which floors I am buying so as soon as I get squared away with the installer, I will order the floors and start working on that room!
Let the projects begin!
Do you have problems focusing on one area of your home? I know some of you will answer no because I see you plow through projects all the time!
What about the rest of you?
What holds you back from decorating your home?
