Plans for the House in 2013

January 16, 2013

I’m not a big resolution kind of gal (kinda obvious since it’s January 16th) but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to set goals for myself and goals for the house.  One thing I am is a list maker or maybe I’m a person who enjoys crossing things off the list.

I thought it be fun to share my list with you this year and check in from time to time and see how I’m doing.  I’m usually pretty good about once something is written down I’m able to accomplish it.  I’m not necessarily aiming to have to cross everything off the list because I’m not really looking for that sort of pressure this year but I do know writing things down helps me keep on track with my decorating ADD!

So here goes…

The Foyer

1.  Change the curtains or perhaps eliminate them all together.

2.  Paint the small bench.

3.  Replace the artwork.

The Dining Room

1.  Finish curtains and hang.

2.  Hang artwork.

3.  Find 2 additional chairs to replace the wicker chairs.

4.  Paint the buffet mirror.

5.  Paint inside of dining room hutch.

The Living Room

1.  Add doors to bottom of bookcases.

2.  Add trim to the bamboo shades.

3.  Cushions made for window seats.

4.  New light fixture.

5.  New coffee table because our current one looks like an accident waiting to happening for Cooper once he starts crawling.

6.  Decorate Fireplace Mantel.

(Fireplace in 2012)

7.  New rug.

Front Porch

1.  Sell wrought iron furniture, it’s uncomfortable and I want to spend more time outside.

2.  Find new furniture for front porch.

Back Yard

1.  Finish Bocce Ball Court.

2.  Paint outdoor furniture to squeeze out a few more years, it looks good in the photos but seriously horrible in person.

3.  New patio set for back patio.  Something comfortable to go outside and drink my coffee wine.

4.  Possible area for movie night outside.


1.  Remodel entire kitchen.  Yep.  Yea not sure this one’s going to happen.

Main Floor

1.  New flooring.  Yep.  Not sure about this one too since the floor and kitchen both have to been done at the same time.

I guess that seems like a lot especially since I said I was going to take things a little slower this year so I’ll be interested to see how things go!

Most important, have friends over during the process and entertain more without so much fuss!

Do you make a to do list for your home every year?  Please tell me I’m not the only crazy one!

    1. You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this
      topic to be really something that I believe I might by no
      means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive
      for me. I am taking a look forward in your next publish, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    1. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality
      articles or blog posts on this sort of house .
      Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site.

      Reading this info So i am happy to show that I’ve a very
      just right uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed.

    1. I just could not go away your web site before suggesting that I extremely enjoyed the usual information an individual supply to your guests?

    1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
      my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
      I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
      you would have some experience with something like
      this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
      I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
      to your new updates.

    1. It’s going to be end of mine day, except before ending I am reading
      this fantastic piece of writing to increase my experience.

    1. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
      if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills
      so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
