September + October Punch List Review

I just can’t believe it’s already November.  Where did September and October go, ya’ll?!

It’s been awhile since we did a Punch List review, and we’ve accomplished a lot since our last recap back in August.  Over the past 2 months, we’ve focused on painting trim, slowly completing our guest bathroom makeover, and lots and lots of yard work.  We also purchased new doorknobs for the whole house and finally got almost all of them installed.

Let’s check out the list and see what we marked off over the past 60 days.  Old accomplishments are crossed-out in black, recent ones in red!

So that’s what we’ve been up to for the past couple of months.  I think my favorite changes happened in the hallway and guest bathroom.  How about you?

Look for a few more big items to be crossed off the Punch List before the holidays, including a guest room reveal, a (hopefully) finished guest bath, and big changes to our curb appeal!  Whew!  We have our work cut out for us… 🙂

Thanks for reading!
