My Bucket List to Glam

In order to get to my glam bucket list, I have to do some basic mundane bucket list things first.

My basic, mundane bucket list for my mobile home is a long one. Some things will be room specific, others will be through out my mobile home. You walk into the living room from outside, but the living room looks good, bland, but good. My whole house paint is pictured below. The intellectual grey looks really dark, so I’m changing it to revere pewter, which will be in the living room and possibly the kitchen/dining area. The master bedroom paint is silvermist which is supposed to be grey that looks green at times and blue at times, but it looks awful blue on the swatch.My fav, fav, fav color is in the master bath, guest bath and laundry room, sea salt. The master bedroom has a really good chance of being sea salt also.

We have really good steal doors front & back that were also trimmed out nicely. The little lady that lived here before us was so scared to live by herself, she had them put in along with brackets to put a 2 x 4 through to secure them even more (This isn’t a high crime area).

All of the moulding and trim work will be done after everything is finished in all the rooms. As long as everything looks nice and how we (I) want it, I’m all good. Moulding is like decoration on frosting on a cake, it’s nice to look at but not needed.
