Week 18 & 19: Our Boutique Home. Airlie 38 Blog

So the last two weeks haven’t fully gone to plan, painting was due to be finished but it looks like only one coat has been done.  It’s a bit of a shame, but what can you do (other than continue to stalk and imagine where you will put a couch, a photo or a pendant)

I believe the kitchen and other cabinetry is due for this week (Week 20), so it will be interesting to see if this happens as the painting isn’t finished.  I’m really looking forward to seeing the kitchen.  I’m a little worried about our gloss cabinets – I’m really thinking we should have done a silk finish… not much I can do about it now. Hopefully it looks cool.  It is exactly the same as the Wollert display, and that looked good, so I’m sure it will be fine.  Fingers crossed.

I am going to ring around and start getting some quotes on plantation shutters and extra cabinetry this week.  It’s still hard to believe that the house will actually finish – so I need to stop being in denial and believe it will and get cracking on a few things.

I want to price a built in entertainment unit, with cabinets and drawers.  Also cabinetry for my sewing room, mud room and vanity area.  I think I can already hear the $$$$ clinking to the ground.  Hubby keeps giving me the “prioritise” lecture – that I need to list in order, the things I want done first.  Apparently a drive way and blinds are important – lol.  I thought a nice piece of art would be great and a new couch. ha ha.

Anyway, so my first step is to get an idea on how much things cost – as my list is l-o-n-g!!!

So here’s to a good week with more progress, as Christmas is only 3 weeks away and nothing will happen then. (insert tears. lol)

Oh, and another Boutique is about to start building across the road – it will be interesting to see what design it is…
