2011 Home Goals

    We have lots of ideas for improvements in our home this year, but only so much time and money (isn't that always the case!) Here is our list of achievable goals for 2011 (and some carrying over from 2010.) 

    1. Living Room 
    • decide on wall colour and design direction (on a budget) to suit my leather sofa and love of farmhouse/rustic style. Thanks for all the suggestions on this post (the accessories are just piled there after clearing out the Christmas decor.)

    2. Finish our bedroom
    • paint pine night tables and dresser
    • closet organizers and sew drapes for closet (we removed the cheapo sliding doors)
    • new window coverings

    3. Adding architectural interest with trim to main floor
    • kitchen backsplash
    • fireplace/tv wall trim in family room (and hopefully add a flat screen and move the old one to the basement)
    • basement stairs wall trim

    4. Paint main floor powder room
    • add some trim to builder mirror

    5. Paint main (boy's) bathroom
    • walls and ceiling (to cover my really sad attempt several years ago to paint clouds on the ceiling)
    • possibly paint cabinetry 

    6. Finish basement Guest Suite bedroom

    Okay, that is way too many 'finish' items. I will stop now before it gets worse.
    I'm joining the Nester's 2011 Home Goals link up. Then I'm settling in with a hot cup of tea on this snowy evening and reading all the other Home Goal link ups.
