    This post describes me perfectly!! And I know it sometimes drives my husband crazy… He wants to completely finish a room before starting the next. Where I want to at least get it looking my style even if we can’t completely finish it right away. Also, like you, once I get an idea for something that will mostly be labor without much cost for materials, it has to happen!

    If there was ever a post that embodied how my brain worked, this one is it! I feel like I could have written this entire thing. I’m so with you in that no room is ever really complete, but that’s what is so fun about it! I really would never look at any of the rooms in your house and think, “That needs work.” Your home is beautiful, Shayna! And you’re totally right that we’re all our own worst critics. I look forward to all of your projects and the way you switch things up. 🙂

  3. I so get what you’re saying in this post, Shayna. I’ve recently decided I’m the same way, and it makes sense to me that our rooms speak to us and “tell” us what to do next. One day, it’s this room, and the next day it’s that room. Really, I love your style wherever it’s taking place and whatever stage it’s in.

  4. Shayna, I couldn’t agree more and I am so happy that there is another individual out there just like me! I base my projects off of time and money. If I am short on cash and time, I get the small stuff out of the way and save up for the bigger ones. I’m also constantly coming up with new ideas and pushing the old ones aside because I’m so excited about the new ones haha. 🙂

    I know how you feel. I am constantly changing things up around the house and it drives my husband nuts. He tells me I need to stay off Pinterest. I get too many ideas and switch things up around the house and then 6 months later I’m back in the same room doing another project. I do wish that I could feel satisfied with a room and that it’s complete. I tend to find myself wondering what else I can change or do.

    I get this Shayna, I really do. I think it’s all about fine-tuning and growing into a space. For me it feels like balancing out the rooms. We have one big area that needs a big overhaul (complete gutting more like) and I feel like none of the other rooms feel complete until that is done and I can start bringing them all together and changing things around.

  7. I knew I loved you for a reason. We are brain twins!!
    I do the same, exact, thing.
    I’m like a DIY bunny. I hop from one thing to the next, as my passion, budget and ideas dictate.

    Keep being all over the place.
    You are SO good at it.
    Hugs, Shan

    Oh don’t I know exactly what you mean!! I’m the same way with all of my projects. I love the fact that my home will never be “finished”. The dreaming and planning are my favorite part anyway. Keep it up, I always look forward to every post! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your journey.

    When you have a home and garden it’s never really finished as something like repairs or new ideas or whatever it may be simply comes up and that’s OK. I used to get frustrated trying to “finish” a room but inspiration (like your blog) always gets in my way and it’s actually a good thing. I agree it’s about being content and grateful in that moment for what you have and continuing to reach for the stars with your dreams. Otherwise life simply stops if you don’t have any passion, dreams or goals. Great post. Exactly how many of us women who love to create a house into a home operate.

  10. I do the exact same thing! I completely get it.

    Hello Shayna~ I admire that you are “all over the place”. Your home and blossoming business are wonderfully put together and beautiful. As a fellow Coloradan-I appreciate that your vision, creativity and hard work are representative of our majestic state. Keep up the magnificent work! I always look forward to seeing what you are up to.

  12. Loving this post, and couldn’t agree more! Personally, I found this method to work better as well so I don’t push myself to complete a project when I’m not ready to finish. Does that make sense? Sometimes I’ll start on the bathroom, and I’ll love everything except for one thing. Sometimes I won’t even know what that thing is! So, I’ll move on to the next project until I figure it out. I’m definitely a firm believer that you can only push creativity to a certain point, and then it needs to come to you. Thanks again for the post 🙂

    I was so glad to read that someone else is scattered and sure at the same time! And after reading others that commented, it isn’t an unusual frame of mind.
    I think my biggest stumbling block is $$$ but I’m learning how to live on a fixed income and still do what I dream one small piece at a time..You have inspired me with the plank walls..love them and they will look good in many of my rooms. Cannot wait!
    Just wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration to me. Thank you and keep creating!
