Important Note: These photos show some of the worst of my house. I didn't do any touching up or sprucing. This is real life...I'm excited to show you what I have done, but for now, this is what needs to be fixed!
- Accent Walls
Pleased to tell you that Operation Family Room (a long, ongoing project for budgetary reasons and previous lack of motivation) is actually in full swing! I completed the gallery wall over the couch and need to blog about it. I have two more walls that need some sprucing and would like to make some pillows to accent the big blue chair. Some day, I'd like to slipcover or replace that chair, budget permitting.
I finished up two furniture makeovers in the dining room...also need to share those on the blog. My goal for the dining room in 2015 is to get the walls painted! The red was pretty and Southern and classic years ago, but I prefer neutral walls and colorful accents these days. The walls are going gray to match the kitchen.
Addition (New Room/Playroom)
- Upcycle drapes
- Wall decor
- Purge, donate, reorganize toys
- Complete labeling and sprucing up craft supply area
Even though the we added onto the house six years ago, we still call this area "The New Room" for lack of a better moniker. The room houses most of the kids' toys, books, and all of my craft supplies. After some toy "redistribution" and reorganization, I'd like to add some decorative accents to the space. I have a few ideas. The window panels need a bit of work, and I have a little sprucing to do with the craft area before I can show off the room.
- Paint bench
- Purge cabinets
The only things I really need to do in the kitchen this year are paint my bench and purge some cabinets!
- Wall decor
- Bring some color!
- New headboard (upholstered?)
- Wall decor
- Purge and reorganize
Overhaul. Serious overhaul. We upgraded our bed to a king-size at the end of the year, so we don't have a headboard any more. I really want an upholstered headboard, but I don't want to pay $$$. T swears he can DIY one for me, but he is the king of procrastination, so we'll see if that gets done. We need new bedding, new window treatments, and maaaaaajor decluttering and reorganizing. Artwork, decor accents are needed as well. I hate that room---it is bare and ugly. It needs to be cozy and inviting! I don't know if we'll have the budget for all that, but I can try.
- Toy purging and reorganizing
- Wall decor in girls' room
Harris' nursery is pretty much complete and seriously adorable. I need to show it off here on the blog! It has come a long, long way from girlie nursery to hoarder's paradise to little boy's space.
The girls' room is a disaster zone. Despite my best efforts to contain and organize things, we need to do some decluttering and reorganizing. They need some new artwork on the walls too.
So...most of my list involves touching up with things like decorative elements. I'm going to try to do a room at a time, with the exception of decluttering and donating items we/the kids no longer need or use.
Do you have any home goals for 2015? What's your plan?
