Lucie's Room "To Do" List (and some reality)

Ahhh, reality. It's an oft' discussed issue among bloggers. Do we show you the reality? Do we "put our best foot forward" so to speak? I've heard that some people only have a best foot, so when you read their blogs, and everything looks perfect, that's actually how they live. (I am impressed by these people... or I would be if I knew any personally... although, I secretly suspect that I might irritate the snot out of them.)

Anyway, I go with showing the reality, especially since showing my "best foot" is a problem because it's always in need of a pedicure.

To that end, I am going to give you the list of things I need to do to finish Lucie's room, along with pics of her room in its current state. Enjoy!

1. CLEAN... (good, we got that out of the way)

It starts by removing all of the toys from the boxes to make "rooms" for her Monster High" dolls.

Sewing projects:

  1. Purl Bee ball pillow
  2. Skull pillow
  3. Rose pillow
  4. Cushion
  5. Shades
  6. Shams
  7. Pouf
Where does all the stuff go? Well, it gets smooshed into the drawer for one.

Construction projects:
  1. Finish woodwork
  2. Paint woodwork
  3. Finish Drawer
When I said "into the drawer" I didn't mean to infer that all of it went into the drawer...

Craft projects:
  1. Bulletin board
  2. Cover the cushion of the chair above
  3. Create tags and some storage items
  4. Charging station
Isn't that a pretty chair? It's right there... In front of you... What do you mean you can't see it?
It's like "Where's Waldo" only with a chair.

Other projects:
  1. Touch up desk
  2. Paint nightstand
  3. Try cutting down the rug
  4. Touch up walls
I'm going to attempt to cut that rug down a little... once I unearth it.
Lucie LOVES to make stuff out of duct tape, including a mess.

Finally - weed out and organize. 

Believe it or not, it's pretty well weeded, it's just everything is out, all over the floor, where else would it be? 

HA! How's THAT for reality! Welcome to my humble abode ;-p

See you tomorrow,


  1. heather - i'm overwhelmed looking at it! all those jobs! all that work. oh goodness, i need to take a break. crafting and fixing up homes is not my thing. for lucie's sake, i hope you stuffed things away so she can get some sleep. however, since you love fixing things up - wonderful! i'm happy to come along. joy and blessings.

  2. Ha ha, it's so much fun to read your blogposts Heather!

    It's a LOT of work on that list! I hope you take it step by step, don't let it overwhelme you.

    That turqouise chair is really pretty - yes, I could see it!

    I'm not sure you saw my second comment on your post from January 18... I wrote that I had given you the Liebster Blog Award. You can read my post about it here: http://jamiesaysdream.blogspot.com/2012/01/comments-make-me-send-on-blog-award.html

  3. AND you don't have to feel that you MUST pass the award on. You can just enjoy it if you want, and pass it on if you want :-)

  4. Good for you for putting it all out there. It actually doesn't seem all that daunting to me. Well, except for the sewing part. Think how much better all of you will feel. The harder part will be getting her to keep it that way...

  5. Ah yes, that looks like about half the rooms in my house. LOVE that chair.

  6. ahh! that is one awesome list!!!
    heather, i'm not shocked in the slightest; i am impressed!
    working through the list, yay you!!!
