My only main task left to do is tackle the bedroom. I will have to wait till week nine to do that, then hopefully over Memorial Weekend I plan to have some friends over for brunch or dinner. This cure has been very productive, and it is such a great feeling to have a well organized apartment. - Lynne F
Welcome to the final stretch. I'm going to stand on the runway and wave you all in for a landing ;-). Dinner or drinks awaits you. Even if you take off again and fly a little further, join us all this next weekend.
This week is all about getting ready. I didn't plan too many specific things for the final week so that those finishing up could take advantage of a little extra time. The main thing is to close up your project (as much as you can), clean up and get yourself ready for guests of some sort...
You can see every room in Holly's apartment in this one shot. Here are her Then & Now shots.
Of course, you've already been working for a number of weeks, so the real challenge here is more in the stopping than starting.
I know that a number of you are working on BIG projects that won't stop this week. What I recommend to all of you, however, is that you clean up as best you can so that this week - if nothing else - is a breather. Inviting some friends over - keep it casual! - is still a good idea, and you may find yourself surprised at how interested and impressed your friends will be, even if you're not entirely done. Remember, most people don't spend this much time on their home!
J-fer Rose is waiting on her contractor, who starts a week from today, but she's got all of her materials and color scheme all picked out.
