Ya, so I know 2012 has barely began, but im going to do a post about a few of the main house projects I WANT TO DO in 2012, instead of going over the ones I did in 2011, im a rebel like that
These wont be in any particular order – I just need to get done what excites me most that day!! I get bored easily…
First up on my list, which I actually think I am going to do tomorrow is my fireplace mantel. I just want to chunk it up a little by adding some molding and painting it cream. That should be easy.
Next, is my railing. I HATE our railing. Its so boring. I have some ideas to chunk that up too, and my spindles for sure will be getting a coat of white paint. But, it does make a good blanket dryer!
Then, my cabinets are calling my name! I am just trying to decide on the perfect creamy white and then I will get to painting those – cant wait! And I have figured out what I am doing with my island, so that will be getting another re-do too!!
But 1st, I need to paint my walls! Oh ya!! im thinking a nice soft gray, or maybe a cream, or maybe white….or maybe gray – I need to decide! Every inspiration pic I see makes me change my mind! I like the color on my walls now, but it needs to be painted anyways and I am just ready for a change.
Then, this dreaded spot in my house. I HATE this spot more than anywhere else. When we built this house, I had visions of kids doing homework here when I was cooking dinner and watching them browse the internet – ya right!! It’s a big ol’ junk collector! Its where everything without a home gets shoved, even the dog!! Its not a good spot, and this is a pic on a good day!! I have plans to build this into some sort of hutch – got lots of ideas floating around my noggin :)
Oh, and then theres this crappy area. I also had visions of the kids sitting down to put on their shoes then I kiss them on there foreheads while I pass them their lunches as they headed out the door to school – ummm, not happening!! What world am I living in??!! Im hoping to make this area a little more practical with some built-ins.
And see this wall? The one around the pantry door – it needs something. I have an idea that will add a little old house charm…
And last, but not least is my pantry. I have an awesomely huge pantry but I need to make it more awesome!! I have a few ideas for that too.
And I think that’s it!! At least these are the “for sure” ones that I want to get done, I can always think of a million projects!
