Home Goals 2015

With the start of a new year, I’m making a list of things that I would like to accomplish as we begin 2015 with new beginnings and a fresh start.

I feel like half of my home goals list from last year are on this new list, but at least I’m quite impressed with how many rooms I got finished in the new home this past year. So, where do we begin in 2015?

1. THE MASTER BEDROOM
Luckily this big project is already underway. I’m hoping to have the final reveal this month if everything goes according to plan. This project was actually on my Home Goals 2014 list, but yeah… that didn’t happen.

2. THE DINING ROOM
I have an idea for this room, it’s just about getting over my fears of tackling new, larger projects. Big time moldings, wallpaper, maybe reupholstering some chairs… it’s going to be gorgeous but I’ll definitely be taking my time with this one.

3. THE LAUNDRY ROOM
I want to create lots of storage in the laundry room, plus a place to store extra coats and bookbags. Maybe something along the lines of my old laundry room?

This is the bathroom that Ellie uses. I want to add some fun color to this space, make it kid friendly. Right now the only thing I’ve added to this bland room is a shower curtain, and that is even boring.

5. HOME ORGANIZATION
This is the year I want to get organized. Every closet and drawer serving a purpose and junk free… well, a girl can dream, can’t she? I think my coat closet gave me the little push I needed to get started here.

So, what’s on your TO DO LIST for 2015?
Outdoors spaces? Organization? A little bit of everything?

Home Goals 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Well with the start of a new year, I’m making a list of things that I would like to accomplish as we begin 2014 with new beginnings and a fresh start.

So what’s on my to-do list for this year?
Well, with a 3 week old new home… LOTS!

kitchen

 1. ADD COLOR TO THE WALLS.
When we moved into our house, basically all of the walls were white. OK, not really white white, but close enough. I’d like to give some of the living areas a fresh coat of paint to offset the white cabinets and give a little character to our home.

2. ELLIE’S BEDROOM.
If you remember, during construction we built a stage in my daughter’s bedroom. I really want to see where this project can go. Paint on the walls, huge gold curtains for the stage, DIY window cornices, and a gold, pink and light blue color scheme as per the kiddo. Such big plans and I can’t wait to get started!

3. THE DINING ROOM.
I’m absolutely in love with my farmhouse table from Ezekiel and Stearns, but I really need to work on the rest of the space. I’m thinking of a darker grasscloth wallpaper above and crisp white picture frame moldings below. I also need to find wall hangings and an area rug. Oh, so much to do in this room!

craft room

4. CRAFT ROOM
For me this is one of the most important spaces in the entire home. Not only is it functional as a place to get creative and craft, but it has also become the home to an actual business. And in this new home I have a blank slate. I’ve already purchased a desk, and can’t wait to see if I can outdo my last craft room.

5. OUR BEDROOM
The last big project I’d like to complete this year is our bedroom makeover. In 2014 I don’t care about bathroom makeovers or if my living room sits completely empty for the entire 12 months. I just want to enjoy the space that I actually use. Oh, which reminds me…

6. LAUNDRY ROOM
Since our new home didn’t come with any type of shelving in the laundry room, this is a MUST makeover (even though I’d like to focus in other areas of my home but this seems to be one of the most used spaces, urgh).

So I’m thinking about adding cabinets or just plain wire shelving to keep this family organized. And of course a place to hang booksbags, etc. I really REALLY miss my old laundry room. It was bright and cheerful and just practical. Hmm… might have to steal some ideas from my old space!
