My Finalized 2013 Project List

Happy Monday Peeps!!!!!!

After much meditation and conversation, I have narrowed down the projects I'd like to take on in our home this year. The first one you already know about and that's decorating the boy's room. This is a pretty big project as this room will serve multiple purposes: sleeping, playing, and learning; so it has to be multi-functional and easy to keep organized. I don't want to overthink or overbuy on this project. Or any other project for that matter....

We want to take time and figure out our style; because that is something we have never been able to do in our whole 6 almost 7 years of marriage. Being a young couple having family and friends wanting to help, our home is full of items from other people's homes and styles. While we purchased a few decorative or small items here or there, we have yet to buy a significant piece of furniture ourselves. Which was a great blessing that saved us a ton of money; and I'm grateful. But I'm ready to look at OUR home and see OUR taste.

So we are taking our time doing research and getting advise from where ever we can.

In the meantime... here is my list:

House Projects:


  • organize and declutter pantry
  • organize and declutter cabinets
  • organize and declutter fridge and freezer
  • purchase bar stools for breakfast counter
  • purchase deep freezer
  • install shelf under cabinets for microwave
  • add decorative accents

Dining Room:

  • get chairs reupholstered and fixed
  • add decorative accents/wall art
  • purchase table linens (protective/decorative)
  • purchase storage furniture piece (buffet)
  • create office nook

Living Room:

  • get couch slip covered/reupholstered (Mom sponsored)
  • purchase a large rug
  • purchase ottoman (replace coffee table)
  • mount our 60" TV
  • purchase new lighting
  • update decorative accents
  • purchase small chair for secretary desk

Boy's Room:

  • purchase bunk bed
  • make cushions for storage bench
  • paint/varnish furniture
  • purchase bedding and decorative accents
  • organize closet
  • create play space
  • make/buy window treatments
  • create reading corner (get or make small bookcase)

Kid's/Guest Bedroom:

  • find shower curtain or towel pattern I like
  • purchase guest towels
  • organize storage
  • add decorative accents

Master Bedroom:

  • paint/purchase new furniture
  • storage for vanity
  • seating for vanity
  • add casual seating
  • organize closet

Laundry Room:

  • purchase iron and ironing board
  • install drying rack
  • organize storage

 I crossed out the decluttering tasks on my list because it is my intention that after the 40 bags challenge I will not need to declutter anything else in my home. This list is by no means all inclusive or written in stone. It is just a spring board to get me started and who knows what may be added to it.

What projects will you be tackling this year?
