The Grand Remodel: Remaining bits and bobs

Did you think we’d be finished finished? Ho, ho, ho, no, because tweaks and projects never really end for a home. We still have our own set of tasks we’d like to complete by, oh, sometime this year:

  • Furniture. We need a sofa, a dining table, and MOAR chairs.
  • Window blinds. Including one for the sliding door, which hopefully won’t be a pain to operate.
  • A new front door. We ordered it, but since the door is custom-made, it’ll arrive sometime in May or June.
  • Shelves, etc. for organizing the pantry and hallway closet.
  • Bookshelves and hanging pictures.
  • Painting the exterior of the house.
  • Painting a couple more rooms inside the house.
  • A much better toaster oven.
  • Unpacking (and re-storage) that never seems to end.

…Not to mention lots of cleanup.

If you have any favorite or recommended vendors or products for the above, online or brick and mortar, please do share! (I predict visits to the Container Store will exist in my future. 😉

    Congrats on reaching the fun part 🙂

    We love our toaster oven — it was our main cooking appliance when we were without a kitchen during our remodel. It holds a 9×9 or 12×7 casserole, even a 6-cup muffin tin. It’s a Cusinart TOB-175 (much like this one — — a newer, slightly prettier version).

    Not sure if he works in your area, but we adore Sean Love at Love Painting in SF. I gush more about him here:
