How to motivate a husband to finish his DIY projects
Well it has been 3 full years in our fixer upper home and my kitchen island is still unfinished, the undercabinet lighting has yet to be installed, (there are just hanging wires) and the trim and stair hallway is still waiting to be painted, the list goes on, but I may run out of room here.
We have 3 kids (ages 7,4, and 1), and 2 full time jobs, and it leaves very little time to get the punch list finished. You see- my husband has renovation ADD. He never finishes anything before starting another project. Which leaves many unfinished projects throughout our home. But I've reached my breaking point- I just can't take it anymore.
So I just volunteered us to be a host house for our neighborhood progressive dinner. He has until January 29th to get the kitchen completed. Am I crazy? My husband works really well with deadlines, but if he thinks he has an infinite amount of time, that's how long it takes to finish.
How do you all light the spark under your husband's butts?
If you have a DIY husband, I know you can relate. It seems to be a common ground amongst all the DIY men I know. I am ready to break out his power tools and try and finish the projects myself. Instead, I've invited the neighborhood over to see exactly what we've been doing the last 3 years. Our house has been the talk of the neighborhood since we moved in, and very few have seen the inside.
