What to do, what to do

I gave a problem.

I have 8 days off IN A ROW and a lot of projects that I want to work on. Sigh.

How to prioritize?

Do I do some work on my bedroom?

I have some beautiful new bedding waiting to go on my bed,  but there are some things I want to do to that room first.

I have a fairly basic wooden headboard that I want to upholster and tuft.

Some Ikea dressers to hack for each side of the bed.

Plus I picked up a coffee table that I want to turn into a bench for the end of the bed.

Our living needs a new ottoman.

Maybe something like this?

In the spirit of DIY, I want to replace our existing every-speck-of-dust-shows-up-and-drives-me-crazy coffee table with a hand built upholstered number.  There are lots of plans out there.

But then my basement needs work. 

A lot of work! But do I really want to spend my time in my dark, dank basement?

My bathroom needs some updating. 

Some cabinet paint. A frame around the mirror. Some grout touch ups. But is it really important?

My backyard is my current passion project. Conquering my black thumb is a big thing for me. I'll definitely spend some time plant in my annuals. I think I should build a potting bench.

Javier doesn't even know about this project. Maybe I'll surprise him...

Hmmm, the mudroom. We plan to rip out of existing cabinets and build sonething like this.

So pretty. And I can see myself getting pretty organized with this.

Then there's the attic.

It's long been a dream to properly turn it into a media space. How Javier would love this!

The really sad thing is that this is only a very small fraction of what I'd like to accomplish.

Maybe I'll just spend the whole time here...

With a coffee, a book, and my favorite dog.

So many things to do, so little time.
