No worries, I am still savoring the season, enjoying time with family. Tonight's activity will be pajamas and hot cocoa while driving around looking at lights.
But, I am also looking forward to the new year and what I might want to accomplish. I am picking a dozen (which feels ambitious!) projects that I hope to complete for me, for my home. I tend to be the cobbler whose children have no shoes--I make things for others and to sell and don't keep much for myself. I want to get a little selfish this year. Yep, you heard me right, selfish and do some projects for our family. Here are my ideas:
POUFS--I want to make a pouf or two. This past weekend with family here made it clear I need some extra spots for sitting when we have extra bodies over.
PAINTING CABINETS--I think it is time, I think I am ready to paint my cabinets. I am not sure what color or if I can convince hubby, but I want to do it!
And after I paint those cabinets, I need to FINALLY install CABINET HARDWARE!
HEADBOARD--We got a king sized bed more than a year ago and I have yet to make a headboard for it.
Speaking of headboards, my GUEST ROOM needs one too, not to mention some cleaning up and freshening up.
Oh to have STORAGE SHELVES like this--it will happen, it will happen!
I need WINDOW VALANCES for my family room.
REVAMP KITCHEN TABLE--we built a kitchen table over a year ago, but it I have never shown you because it isn't quite right. It needs new legs like this!
We have a TV NICHE in our bedroom that needs hiding (don't judge--our marriage is great even with a TV in the bedroom).
An easy project that I can check off the list in an hour or so is PAINTING MY PANTRY DOOR. I might paint it a fun color and then add chalkboard paint.
I want to TRIM OUT my builder grade bathroom mirror.
And a final, need to check it off the list project is A SHED.
That seems like a lot, but I think listing it and thinking about it as a project a month will help for sure. What 2015 projects to you hope to accomplish? On another note, I was delighted when a sweet friend let me know that my ribbon star had been featured on BUZZFEED. See it HERE, along with 39 other fun ideas!!
