So since we only have a couple of short weeks left in this year, I thought it would be interesting to take a look back and see where I am on my list of Home Goals for 2012 that I wrote back on January 11th. Let’s take a look!
1. GREAT ROOM MAKEOVER: OK, yeah… this one is still a work in progress. Way to start off the first goal with a bang, right?
Well in 2012 I did paint the walls, hung some new drapes, bought new tables, and gave makeovers to some tables seen here, here and here. I still have my old red chairs in this room that I would like to switch out and need a new area rug, but it’s definitely on the right track to be completed in 2013.
I replaced the little side table with a piano that my cousin gifted me, painted the red wall the beautiful shade of Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams, purchased some drapes, and hung some beautiful vintage-inspired portraits of my daughter. Cheap changes that made a big impact.
3. KITCHEN MAKEOVER: Yep, I painted my kitchen cabinets in 2012! This is definitely my favorite makeover of the year. It’s amazing what a little bit of paint can do, isn’t it? And while I didn’t get new flooring like I was wishing for, I’m still 100% happy with the outcome of my mini kitchen makeover on a budget.
5. BACKYARD: OK, this one was a complete failure. I didn’t touch my backyard ONCE this past year. I didn’t even plant anything new in the yard. I was able to give my front porch a mini makeover, but that’s about it for the outdoors. Guess I’ll have to tackle that in 2013 (urgh).
Stay tuned the first week of January when I introduce my Home Goals of 2013!
