New Years Housalutions

Happy 2011 readers!  We’re so excited to start a new year in our new house and our brains are swirling with all of the projects we want to take on.  While it’s fun being in a house that needs help from ceiling to floor, it’s a bit overwhelming at times.  Here are the projects that we resolve to start (and finish) in 2011.

  • Remove all wallpaper (hall bath, powder room, kitchen, mudroom, family room, Rich’s office)
  • Paint all rooms (guest bedroom, Steph’s office, Rich’s office, hall bath, kitchen, dining room, family room, mudroom, powder room, master bath, upstairs hallway, downstairs hallway)
  • Have wood floors refinished
  • Fence in part of the yard
  • Update the landscaping
  • Lay a new front walkway
  • Dress up all our naked windows (there’s not a single curtain to be found right now!)
  • Build (or buy) a new dining room table
  • Have a yard sale

Of course, we’ll have lots of other small projects along the way as they fit into our schedule and budget!  And we resolve to keep blogging it all so our family and friends both near and far can get a glimpse of what we’ve been working on.  Thanks to all of you who are reading and I hope 2011 brings you much health and happiness!

    Curtains are for suckers! I can’t quite get past that long, long list of rooms for now — never again going to be jealous of actual houses – sounds like way more work! Happy New Year give or take a few days.

      Listed out like that it does look pretty overwhelming. I just tell myself we have the next 20 years to get it all done…of course by that point the stuff we do this year will be as outdated as silver and turquoise tree print wallpaper. Happy New Year to you too!
