I'm having a hard time kick-starting this year. Usually I come off the holidays with a list and a ton of energy to just get things done. Not this year. I was inspired to create a list of home goals from a couple of my bloggy friends. I have my resolutions, but I think I need concrete tasks for the house. Tasks that will focus me and help me start planning our bigger projects.
My biggest obstacle is that the projects on our list are HUGE. Like, gutting rooms HUGE. So they're a little intimidating. But if I've learned nothing from this blog, it's that if you take projects one step at a time they become both manageable, and finished.
2012 Home Goals
- Install new counter top
- Tear up linoleum (BOTH layers) and refinish hardwoods
- Build a kitchen island
- Install a dishwasher
- Refinish chairs
- Paint floor
- Install new non-wood window
- Tear out everything
- Tile floor
- Tile shower
- Find a suitable organizing system
- Finish decorating
Are we crazy for thinking that we can tackle a kitchen AND a bathroom in one year? Maybe. Probably. So we'll see how that goes. We need to decide which is more important (bathroom) and which will be easier/less intrusive to our life (kitchen). Sigh.
What's the #1 thing you like to accomplish in your home this year?
