Things I am dreaming of (and some I hope to get done before Drew arrives!)

We have been trying really hard to remodel our home and finish a lot of projects that have been started but not yet completed. We have a list that is outrageously long! lol. However, with Drew coming in just a few short weeks, I am starting to nest and get nervous about all of the things we need to accomplish! But, I am feeling really good, too, because this is when we get the most done! Under pressure!!! :o)

So, here are a few things that I am wanting to get accomplished before the big day, hopefully at least a month before the big day, which gives us very little time! If we don't get these things done, I am not going to freak out or anything. I have lived here for almost 9 yrs and I can deal with it longer if I have to!(A LOT of this WILL NOT get done; because of the time factor and financial reasons but we will be working on this through out the entire next year and WILL eventually get it exactly how we want it!) I am really excited!!!
This slipcover for the sofa except maybe in the chestnut color below:

These pretty floor lamps!

I LOVE the color of the paint in this bathroom and the metal/wood accesories. Would not use the tile, though.
New carpet for the living room and our bedroom, not sure about the girls room yet.
New tile for the foyer, dining room, kitchen, bathroom & utility room/half bath.

In the next post, I will share with you want I want to accomplish in the bedrooms and Drew's (very small) nursery! Stay tuned.......
