12 Home Goals for 2012

There are several big projects that I would like to accomplish this year.  I think I appear to be all organized and "Type A", but I'm really a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of girl and just hope that things turn out similar to the vision in my head.  Hopefully, if I list them here, I'll have a little bit of accountability from you all and stay on track to get things finished!  I'm the worst at taking on a big project and getting it 90% finished, then never quite totally completing the task.  So, here goes.

I have chairs like this in my garage.  They don't look this good.  Yet.

2) Change out my dining room.  Well, technically fill it up.  I sold my furniture months ago and everything in there right now is temporary.

3) Master bedroom overhaul.  Paint, drapery, bedding.  Figure out what to do with the furniture.

4) Finish our kitchen.  We did a semi-major remodel about a year ago that I still want to show you, but there are a few more things to do before I'll declare it officially "done."

5) Paint interior doors.  I've got a small start on this one but still plenty to do!

6) Major trim touch up.  Most of the lower baseboards in our home are getting pretty sad looking.  This is probably the job I look forward to the least!

7) My closet.  Two words...   Total. Disaster!  Figure out a way to organize it to keep it clean once and for all!

8) Master Bath Redo.  This one has been a long time coming and it's finally worked it's way up on the list.

9) Back yard clean-up, "tending to".  There was no landscaping in our back yard when we moved in 4 years ago, so we've tried to add a little at a time.  I know we'll do something back there this year, just not sure what yet.

10) Clean out/re-organize the garage.  This is one that never leaves the to-do list!

11) Put the finishing touches on my son's room.  It's pretty good right now but there are a few things I've had in mind in order to have it be complete.

12) Have lots of people over, relax, and enjoy the company!

Well, there you have it!  My top 12 home goals for 2012.  I know there will be lots of other projects sprinkled in along with these major ones, so I hope you come along and see what actually gets done around here!
