Back in January the Nester posted her house goals for 2011 here and encouraged us to do the same. I posted about that here.
After reviewing my goals, I think we did pretty good! We did redo the dining room, sold the corner cabinets, painted over the brown and added board and batten. I did repaint my dining room table and chairs, along with recovering the seat cushions.
We made the cloffice in January which also led to the playroom remodel.
We turned the playroom into a playroom again instead of the catch all it was. We added shelving, redid the floor, painted the walls, threw the couch out to the curb, painted the closet doors white, finished the trim around the windows and ripped out the desk.
We also tried refinishing the front entry floor, it looks better now but a rug really works wonders for covering that up.
I also rocked the outside landscaping and even stained the playset last weekend.
Add to all that the bub’s room,which wasn’t even on the list and I feel pretty accomplished and it’s only June!
Now I have the second half of the year to come up with new house goals at the new house! I already have a few things in mind but I’m hoping to start projects after August when the kids head back to school.
I also found this from my post in January and it’s funny to read it now.
“I love my home but sometimes I feel like I’m always trying to improve it without stopping and just letting things be for a while. I don’t have a Country Living worthy house nor will I probably ever. What I want most is a home that is safe, comfortable, inviting, warm, welcoming and inspiring. A place for my family to think back on fondly when they are grown. A place where they bring their teenage friends to hang out, their children to visit in and where they will always call HOME! Unless of course I get the bug to move in a few years. ” Oh that is funny, isn’t it? Who knew I was a prophetess?
So did you link up to the Nester in January or did you make a list of goals for your home for 2011? How are you doing on your list? I’d love to hear!
