Charlie Eppes: [looking over Alans shoulder] Grow a ponytail?
Alan Eppes: Yeah. I found an old wish list.
Charlie Eppes: Who’s? Steven Seagal’s?
I was looking through some old posts, and I came across my wish list for my home, the 2011 edition. It made me smile to look back on what I dreamed about, before we bought our first home. I’m happy to say we actually have something on the list! We bought some light fixtures that are very similar to the ones I dreamed about.
Here’s the one I liked:
and the ones we installed:
We have them on each side of the garage. I’d still love to get that hanging lantern light for the porch, and the back deck as well.
So now that we’re in our home, I decided to update my wish list. I would love to get a new couch for the family room. Something leather and squishy to go with Match’s man chair.
We have this empty space in our front room beneath the bay window, that’s filled once a year with our Christmas tree. I would LOVE to fill that space with a window seat. We could scoot the tree out further, and we could sit in the window seat and stare up at the tree. And for the rest of the year it would be extra seating for parties, or a great place to curl up with a good book.
In the kitchen, besides the updating we desperately need, I’d love to get granite countertops. I love the light color in this picture. While we’re at it, I’d love to paint our kitchen cabinets white like this too. It would make the room look so much more open and bright. And that kitchen hood is amazing too. Drool!
Thinking ahead to the spring and summer, and all the time we spend outdoors, we could really use some more seating for the backyard. We bought two really pretty chairs for the firepit area. I’d like to get two more, and the matching bench that goes with them.
So that’s what’s on my wish list for our home so far. I’m sure I’ll add to that list and then some. Hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to get a few things on the list this year. What’s on your home wish list?
