I am giving you the mini-list.
I have a much longer list, but it will overwhelm you.
This year, I HOPE to....
1. Paint our main hall.
I need to get rid of 10 years of little kid fingertips going up the wall of the stairs. (When you are under 7 you HAVE to touch the rail and the wall - it is a requirement for being under 7).
Here are some of my color samples that have been on the wall for about six months - on several walls of my hall. Even during the Christmas parties where people other than family were here.
I would tell you my new color but I cannot locate the paint can - I think it is somewhere in the craft room. My new color is much more neutral than I have ever chosen, but I am trying to break out of the 1990's.
2. Paint some exterior trim on our house that I can reach and will not show you because it is really embarassing and is long over-due.
3. Renovate my craft/laundry/art room. So that it looks like this.....
Better Homes and Gardens
or any of these.
My mother will call if I show you this room in its current state, and will say something like "Have you no shame?" so you will have to wait for the "before and after" to see my craft room that has a 1970's drop ceiling.
4. Make window treatments/panels for my recently painted gray living room....
5. Dream a little more about renovating my kitchen so that it looks more like this......
I've been wondering if I could renovate my kitchen in stages, since I have not saved up the money to replace the cabinets. Like build one set of IKEA cabinets at a time and go without counters for a while. This article on Ikea cabiinets has me hopeful.
Enjoy your day!
