I had a look back on my entries from last January, and that was when
I embarked on the 'great kitchen renovation'. I made a looong list of things
that I wanted to take care of - and of course I only finished about half.
The cupboard doors are still in the cellar, waiting for a fresh coat of paint...
This year I will make it easier on myself. Yes, I still have some big
(new) projects on my list, but at least this year I named the list:
'Only if I really feel like it-projects' :) And then I put the list away,
instead of leaving it by the bed, to shame me every morning.
The only really urgent item on the list is lighting. When I took down
the Jul window lights our bedroom and the dining room almost fell into
a black hole. But I can't stand hard light, especially from above, so I had to
find other solutions. Luckily I have a hard time throwing things away... :)
As I searched the house for old lamps I stumbled across my grandfather's
forgotten Strindbergslampa tucked away on top of a bookshelf.
It has a pretty vintage look but I could never get past the beige "marbled"
glass dome. This time however, I suddenly saw the revamping potential,
and whipped out some thin cloth and a cute purple ribbon. Easy peasy!
But I have only just begun re-lighting my house. I also want to get a proper
reading lamp that is easily attached to one of the shelves behind the bed
(like this one at IKEA) and a large plain string of lights for the chandelier
in the dining room. Not to mention the ever lingering kitchen lighting project...
Do you have any interior projects for the coming year?
