We are still in the middle of remodeling our house. Last few years I've been gathering items so we could be ready when we started and also not to have to go broke buying all the items at once.
One thing we did learn is make sure you have everything stored correctly AND you double check how much of an item you will need! We found one of the cabinets we bought got some water damage in the garage and had to replace it. AND we didn't calculate the area we would need for tile right. We picked up a tile I loved but when it came time to put it up I found we were 3 sheets short! So off to the store we went to find out that tile has been discontinued and NO one had it any more. Off to the store to return the tile we bought and picked a different style. A little more expensive but it turned out really pretty.
Have a GREAT Holiday Weekend!
