And so it begins…

June 30, 2009

I’m finally taking the time to sit down and write out my list of everything we need to do around here. I’m giving us a 1 year deadline to complete it, so I’m hoping to use this blog to make us accountable! So starting today…

The Big List:

  • Start a compost pile
  • Start a garden (at least get the spot ready this year so that it’s planned and ready to go next spring)
  • Figure out kitchen designs and start putting the pieces of that together – first will be knocking out half of a wall to the dining room, closing off a door to outside and switching the locations of the fridge and stove. Basically, we’ll gut the whole kitchen, so it will include new floors, new cabinets and counters, possibly a new range, new paint, new back splash, new lighting fixtures and new hardware.
  • Do something with our entry
  • Put something on the blank wall under the stairs
  • Actually paint and finish the kids’ room
  • Finish painting the shutters so that they’re all the same color since the slackers who sold our house only did some of them
  • Figure out something to do with the little mini-sun room/play area
  • Redo the bathroom since we don’t have a tub(just a big walk-in shower) and it’s majorly in need of an update in general – this will include either wainscoting or subway tile, repainting, a new tub/shower combo, new flooring, new vanity, new lighting fixtures and new cabinets on the wall
  • Paint the whole house’s ceilings white
  • Refinish the wooden floors
  • Replace the front door
  • Replace the garage door and the door into the garage next to the larger garage door
  • Put up a basement door instead of a baby gate
  • Add a porch
  • Add a walkway directly to the front door from the sidewalk
  • Take out the current deck and put in a patio
  • Get new living room furniture and actually design the room
  • Overhaul our bedroom
  • Paint, wallpaper or somehow make the inside of the closets fun and organized
  • Organize and make laundry area in garage more fun
  • Setup an office area for me in the basement and organize my inventory

Whew…we can do that all in a year, right??

Leave some love! (It always makes my day:)
