Home Projects Update

It's been too long, so I figured I would check-in with how I'm doing on my homeownership projects.

  1. WD-40 the bathroom drawer (one day I woke up and it seemed to be fixed. yay!) 
  2. Clean the vent above our AC closet
  3. Finally fix the bathroom sink (it doesn't drain to my liking) 
  4. Make a cleaning calendar so I don't spend an entire weekend cleaning a 600 sf condo
  5. Fix the bottom flap/gutter/whatever its called of the freezer 
  6. Clean the windows on our fire escape door and put a privacy film up 
  7. Put an ad on Craigslist for someone to clean all of our blinds (I've done it twice and it's not worth my misery known as allergies) 
  8. Buy a fire-proof safe for our docs (I can't believe we don't have one yet) 
  9. Figure a way for hubster to store all of his officiating gear so it won't drive me crazy all season 
  10. Find the most amazing glass shower door cleaner and buy it in bulk (not really, but really) 
  11. Buy 2 more pretty plastic containers for my silverware (future post so you know what I'm talking about) 
  12. Take a gander for paint color (just an accent wall) 

I'm not nearly as far along with the projects as I would like to be. Do I get bonus points for at least thinking about them in my head? 

I haven't been at home the last few weeks, so it's been hard to get anything done around the house. This weekend I am going to work on #3, #5, #9 and #10. Call me ambitious. 

You can see that I completed #11 - make a useable silverware drawer. In the 3 years I've lived in my condo, my silverware has had 3 different homes. The guy who did the gut rehab of our unit put in some very odd sized drawers. As such, I have never been able to find a silverware holder to fit any of the drawers. I finally found a solution at The Container Store. I couldn't find the exact tubs online, but they were $4.99 each. I can't tell you how nice it is to finally have an organized silverware drawer!
