House Goals for the New Year

 The new year is a time when most people create lists or goals for things they would like to accomplish within the new year. I am no different; I not only have goals that I would like to accomplish personally, but I also have a ton list of things that I would like for us to accomplish in our home.

Over the weekend, the husband and I discussed every little thing that ideally we would like to do in our house, and then we prioritized. His list was definitely shorter than mine; I hate when that happens. Here are the top goals that we would like to see happen in 2012:

1) Finish redecorating the family room. I discussed some of our issues here and here. The biggest hurdle has been deciding on a layout for the room:

I hope to incorporate this into the new design:

Horchow Bevin Tufted Ottoman

You can follow this journey on Pinterest.

2) Add drapery to the sitting area and dining room.

No drapes:

3) Change out the pillows in the sitting area:

4) Find a rug for the entry:

5) Remodel master bath:

6) Stencil the powder room:

7) Change the mirror in powder room to something more interesting:

8) Complete the patio makeover; you can read about it here and here:

9) Add glass front cabinets to the nook in the kitchen:

10) Add pulls and knobs to the kitchen cabinets:

 Man, I'm exhausted already!

There are definitely other things that we would like to do to our home, but these are at the top of our list. I hope at this time next year each of these items will be checked off of the list!

I love that you and your husband discuss this. For me, I work alone...and trust me, we are both happier that way!
