Our boil’s over.
It was a huge success; everyone said they had a great time (except for the crawfish, they had a terrible time).
So now what? We’ve been working for months to get the backyard ready for the boil and while the hardscape (ie. the patio, deck, fence, and sod) are all finished, there’s a lot of detail work that isn’t.
This is where Kevin and I tend to fall off the bandwagon. We’re great at tackling the big things, but when it comes to pushing through and finishing the small stuff we’re not so hot. Take our big bedroom makeover, for example. We started it last June and I have yet to accessorize. Why? Because we’re terrible at following through (and my irrational fear of accessories… but that’s another post).
This time we’re bound and determined to see this project through to the end. We’re not going to even think about moving on to another project (hopefully a few Weekenders) before we plant the last flower and fill the last tiki torch, we promise.
So what do we need to finish?
- Refinish Vintage Metal Rockers
- Hang Globe String Lights
- Build Drink ledge on deck
- Stain/Paint deck
- Plant flowers
- Plant garden
- Rehang Gutter Garden
- Sew Pillows
- Paint/Stain benches
- Fill and place Tiki Torches
- Spray Paint and Hang Z-Gallerie Lanterns
- Build mobile buffet/bar (maybe something that looks like this?)
- Accessorize (the word just scares me)
A few good weekends and we should be able to get the whole thing 100% finished… just in time for Dallas’ 100 degree summers. Maybe we need to consider adding a misting system?
What’s your project downfall? Are you terrible at planning? Stink at the follow through like us? Anyone else terrified of accessorizing?
