Thank you all so much for your kind words after my paint update! Hearing from my blog friends is always such a bright spot in my day. I have truly enjoyed sharing our building process with all of you and I am constantly touched by your uplifting words. I am also extremely appreciative that you have all stuck with me during the past year while my posting has been a bit sporadic and definitely heavy on the new house stuff. At some point (fingers crossed!) I will be able to put more time into my other hobbies including blogging. It is such a fun outlet for me. I love sharing ideas and connecting with all of you so much. But my blog has definitely had to take a back seat this past year because well.. as much as I try to avoid it, I do have to sleep. :) So bear with me these next two months while we finish up the house and move. I will document it all – I just can’t promise that my posts will be all that exciting. Or consistent. Or grammatically correct. Or make much sense at all. In fact, I might ramble a lot. I do that when I’m tired. Kind of like I’m starting to do right now…
Tonight we are knee deep in hardware. Picking hardware started out so fun…
I snapped this picture two hours ago before Kenny and I started going through boxes of some of the door hardware that arrived today to make sure we got everything right. We have two different spread sheets going on for hardware (one for doors and one for cabinets/built-ins) that details how much of what goes where and in what size and where we got it from. Usually I tease Kenny for his over the top detail oriented spreadsheets, but I have to say that his spreadsheets have saved me through this process! I could NOT have done this without him. There is just no more room in my brain for remembering these kinds of details. To be honest there isn’t a lot of room in my brain for much of anything anymore. Building a house will do that to you. Packing up a house and getting ready to move will do that to you. Summer with kids home all day will definitely do that to you. All three things together? Quite a lovely combination. Of course I wouldn’t have it any other way. Just keeping it real by openly admitting that my brain cells have sufficiently suffered. :)
**sidenote: You can always tell how tired I am by my post titles. Notice today’s post is titled “Hardware.” Yup. That’s all I got.
Here is a peek of some of my favorite hardware that you’ll see throughout the house. I know gold is making a comeback right now, but I am a polished chrome girl at heart and always will be.
