My Home Project Goals for 2013

Happy New Year Everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA. December was a crazy busy month, something I’ll have to get to at another time. All good stuff J So around the DIY blogosphere people have been posting their home project goals for 2013. So I figured I’d give it a whirl.

Living Room

·         Have our flat screen TV professionally wired and mounted over our fireplace

·         Repaint the living room a light gray beige.

·         Sell my two Danish wood arm chairs and replace them with some upholstered sofa chairs or loveseat. Our new living room arrangement has given us more floorspace to work with.

·         Create my own 36” x 36” upholstered ottoman table for the living.

·         Go to homegoods and find a new fun table lamp for the living room


·         Clean out and scrub every single kitchen cabinet.

·         Get rid of old spices and crap we don’t need in our cabinets

·         Finish adding the soft closing latches to the cabinet doors so the doors stop slamming all the time.

·         Add a custom DIY window treatment to the window above the kitchen sink.

·         Add a door hook to our half bathroom next to the kitchen. (This would take literally 5 minutes, I just haven’t had the time or I forget to do it until I’m in the bathroom and I need to hang up my robe or something.)

Dining Room

·         Paint the trim, wainscoting and built-in china cabinets a fresh coat of Martha Stewart’s Cotton Balls white paint.

·         Have the area rug in the dining room professionally cleaned. (we bought a Groupon for this, we just have to make an appointment.)

Master Bedroom

·         Buy fabric and make new drapes and reupholster the window seat

·         Buy a 5’ x 8’ rug from

·         This one is a biggie!....Paint the inside of our closets and add built-in closet organizers

Full Bathroom – 2nd floor

·         Paint the bathroom Martha Stewart’s Bedford Gray, white trim, Cotton Balls

·         Change out the shower curtain

·         Add open shelving above the toilet for added storage

·         Create a photo/art collage on the wall with nautical images (I’ve been saving images for this, just need to get the frames from IKEA)

Guest Bedroom

·         Repaint the walls a different gray and repaint the white trim


·         Have wall-to-wall carpet professionally cleaned (again, we have a Groupon for this)

·         Clean out bookshelves and back storage area and get rid of old furniture and crap we don’t need. Donate to Goodwill and have a Spring Cleaning Yard Sale


This is a very long list, but for some reason, I feel better now that I’ve created this list by room. I’m curious to see what my husband is going to think about all of this J

  1. had very well explain about your home project goal. I like this title. Hope that you should place a fireplace wall mount TV in your project to make it more luxurious.
