I cannot believe it’s the end of February (we are almost into the 3rd month of 2011). Wow, where is time going? I feel like I need a do over. It is OFFICIALLY time to get busy on my house goals for 2011. I have been in a blog bubble since I started my blog January 8th. I realized yesterday that I have not even been to Lowe’s in a month! That is a record, Lowe’s is usually at least a tri-weekly stop for us. I think I am starting to have withdrawals.
What have I been doing the past two months? Learning how to blog, trying to be consistent in my posting, and learning photoshop and how to design a blog….but now it is time to get serious.
Here are some of the projects I have planned for the house in 2011. Hopefully, this will get me motivated and help me stay accountable.
* maybe I will build a bench similar to this storage bench from Ana White
* I love this mudroom locker idea too, but our entry is too small.
*new window treatments (we have two glass block windows flanking the front door, I would love to hide them)….maybe something like this from Isabella & Max Rooms: No-Sew Window Treatments would work.
*diy- storage/organization for mail
*new floor tile (we reglazed the sage and pink wall tile, but still have sage and pink floor tile that is coming apart).
*DIY disaster mirror (we tried to add molding to our mirror, but when my husband hung it he didn’t center the mirror). It needs to be taken down and re-centered.
Isn’t it funny how a designer’s work is never complete? Whether it is interior design or blog design. My poor husband was ecstatic when we “finished” our renovations. I still see so many things that need to be done. When we started renovating two years ago we were focused on the “big ticket items.” Now, I am in nick pick mode. Overall, I am happy with our home, but there are so many things I still want to change and upgrade.
How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you have any fun DIY/renovation projects going on right now? I would love to hear about them!
