2012 Home Goals

Here are the projects I hope we can complete on our home this year...
1. Finish the entry way.  We're in the home stretch!  The wainscoting & painting are done!  I just need to add a rug & some accessories, so hopefully I'll finish it up soon!  See the reveal here.

2. Finish dining room.  Again, we are almost there!  The painting & wainscoting are finished.  I just need to find fabric for the curtains (which is proving to be difficult) & add some accessories!  See it here.

3.  Turn the guest bedroom into a nursery.  You would think that I would have started on this, but nope!  I need to paint, get a new light fixture, switch out some furniture, add curtains & accessorize.  I'm hoping to have this done by the end of February, but we shall see!  See the reveal here.

4. Decorate the living room.

I would love to see everything crossed off this list by the end of the year, but realistically, it probably won't be.  (I'm starting to realize my husband might be right when he says my goals are often unrealistic!)  He actually mentioned the possibility of beginning to finish the basement this summer, so maybe we'll add more to the list! 

So, what are your home goals for the year?

  1. You make me tired just reading your list! sounds great. I can't wait to see your finished hall since I'm still in the middle of decorating mine. We started it before Christmas, doing the whole Venetian plaster look. It's looking good so far but then we find it needs sanding and a protective finish. We intend to wainscot next, new floor tiles, and a carpet up the stairs- I just love the soft feeling of carpet on stairs. You can see some of our hall on my Xmas posts. Good luck! I'll be thinking of you too, Sally xxx

  2. wow! what a big list..especially when you add 3 kiddos into the mix! i know you can do it though! haven't forgotten about you. hoping to sit down and write you tonight. :)

  3. What a list! Those are awesome goals! I can't wait to see everything (especially the entry way)! Here's to a wonderful 2012!
