Hope To Make It Happen In 2011!

I am PSYCHED to be participating in the Nesting Place 2011 Home Goals party! I love seeing what everybody's goals are! It is such a good feeling to slash through things on the to do list and I have a loooong list for the new year! Not sure how much of it I'll accomplish but here's my run-down and here's hoping!

SIMPLIFY! DE-CLUTTER! ORGANIZE!  

  • De-clutter and clean up kitchen junk drawers, cabinets and pantry. 
  • Reorganize bathroom cabinets, coat closet, linen closet, laundry room. 
  • Do something with the mantle so I am at peace with it! I keep changing it around and it drives me nuts!

  • Brighten up the living room with more color.
  • Find an inexpensive curtain rod solution for the bay window in the dining room. I already have curtains to hang and can't wait to get them up! Without the Christmas tree there, it looks so bare.


  • Organize the playroom, spruce it up and add something to dress up the windows! It has been on the back burner because I was waiting to see if we were going to have a boy or girl with the second baby. Uh, now that our baby boy is nine months old I think I can do a BOY theme if I decide to! Tee Hee!
  • Hang something on the wall over master bedroom bed FINALLY. We've been in the house for nearly five years so it's about time!
  • Refinish a piece of furniture that has seen better days! Years ago, I accidentally set a warm, scented electric plug-in on top of the wooden stand and it melted to it and ruined the finish. Arrgghh!  
  • Maybe add something over the kitchen cabinets to dress the room up. Oh and find a storage solution for the pots and pans I got for Christmas!
  • Mud and paint the garage and get all the STUFF up off the garage floor so the cars fit better.
  • Possibly attempt crown molding. Dying to put it in the den but maybe I can test it in the laundry room for starters!
  • Decoupage something!
  • Oh I am also itching to learn to sew on a sewing machine but that just may have to wait!
We shall see what I actually accomplish this year but I will try to do as much as I can! I am determined to get this house organized!

I used copper pipe and coduit before for curtain rods, with 45deg. angles, for the bay window and some spray paint. I used the end pieces from curain rods I got from garage sale or ones I had that were for the wrong size windows.
