Feeling Overwhelmed

Do you ever feel overwhelmed? I sure do right now! I have so many great ideas running around in this head of mine that I don't know where to start! Here is my current list of "To-Do" projects...

Living Room
  • Make Curtains
  • Paint Wall
  • Paint Hutch
  • Paint Chair
  • Recover Chair
  • Hang new wall decor

Dining Room
  • Make Curtains
  • Make Tablecloth
  • Paint Wall
  • Hang Family Photo Wall
  • Change Light Fixture
  • Re-do Table

  • Paint
  • New Bedding (Make?!?!)
  • Make Curtains
  • Make new wall decor
  • Hang GIANT HEAVY mirror
{The colors above give hints to how I'm redecorating! Wink Wink! }

Okay so it may not look like a lot, and it may not be that hard to get it all done... but I work, and we've been busy lately. I don't really feel like doing much when I get home.  When I'm at work though I am constantly thinking of all of the things that I want to get done at home. I wish I could just take a week long hiatus to redecorate my house... If I did I wouldn't be able to fund my fabulous makeover though... It's a catch 22.

The other thing is where do I start?!?! With so much to do I don't know what to do first! I know to start in one room and work my way out but which room do I do first?!?! Have any of you ever decided to redecorate your entire house all at once? If so where did you start?


  1. OMG Brooke, I LITERALLY wrote a post about this last week. I was/am so overwhelmed by all the fabulous projects I see bloggers do, plus all the stuff I want to do to my house!

    I think we are seriously one in the same... my solution? wine & xanax :) {preferably not together though, trust me on that one!!}.

    don't you just wish we all had an unlimited amount of funds to do whatever we want????!!!!

    making lists make it easier... i have several, and i really need to consolidate them all, so i have a better idea of what i want to do.

  2. Hi Brooke,

    What a very honest post, I think we all feel this sometime. I have a new house I'm trying to do the same to so I'm taking it one fun project at a time and I'm focusing on enjoying the journey along the way.

    After all, if it was all done, I'd be bored!

    Best of luck with your list!

  3. I say start in the bedroom and make it your haven - a place you can't wait to get to at the end of the day! I can empathize, though. There are a thousand things I'd like to do around here! :)


Thank you for leaving a comment! They make my day! :-)
