DIY-ers, Let's Finish This Thing!
Yup, you know who you are: road weary, ears full of sawdust and a mind so overtaken by our remodels that the last leg seems like it will never get finished.
This is the place to post your accomplishments no matter how small, and to encourage others on their journey. I know I need it, and others have expressed a need for it too.
There are no deadlines except those ( as CEFreeman so aptly put it) we impose on ourselves. For me I would like to be done with my kitchen before company comes the end of May but if it isn't, it isn't and everyone will get over it.
Consider your motivations for getting it finished, and think about it every time you approach a task. Is it reasonable? Is it realistic?
For me a major motivator is needing and wanting more time to spend outside and spend organizing my home still in turmoil after a move.
So my Big Picture tasks that will get me the finish line are:
Install tile rug
Finish trim work
Paint and reattach lazy susan doors
Finish electrical work (hook up hood, energize island outlet, add one more outlet to counter run)
Repair wonky drawer on new stove
Four cabinet doors' insides got forgotten during painting. Finish those.
Paint trim and walls
Finish trimming and painting island
It is still a biggish list, but I will prioritize and allow myself to take the time I need to get through it all.
My weekend goal is to finish the electrical work while DH is home.
