Living/Dining To-Do

Although the living and dining area is now pretty much done, we still have those few finishing touches to do.  And in all honesty, might take a while to get around to them all.

Here's what's still got to be done and I'll check it off as they are done:

* Install plugs in the outlets (they're already wired, just need the plugs put in)
* Install pot lights (again, already wired, just need to pop the hardware in)
* Strip/sand old baseboards
* Repaint old baseboards
* Install baseboards
* Replicate/recreate remaining trim (some of the original baseboards had been replaced by new, much shorter ones by the previous owners)
* Pray that the old window trim will fit our new windows
* If they do, strip, sand, repaint and install them
* If they don't....cross that bridge when we get to it.

Here are a few pics of the work that still has to be done

This is how the windows look now with no trim, foam exposed and messy drywall ends.

Walls with no baseboards yet

Pots lights are just hanging there...we just need to attach them (oooo a little sneak peek of some paint I did last week!)

Outlets with nothing but wires

This is just our bare minimum To-Do list, once this is done, then I'll be able to get to the more fun To-Do list with things like art, shelves, mirrors, rugs....can't wait!

PS....can you guess what arrived in the mail on Monday!?

Looks like I'll be rolling up my sleeves this weekend!!

What's on your To-Do list?
