Out with the old and in with the new

Hello!  Happy New Year!  After taking a little bit of time off in December to catch up from a crazy busy fall/beginning of winter, it is back to the blog.

Since it is the beginning of the year I thought it would be fun to revisit last year’s wish list of projects.  To be honest, I was a bit nervous to look back at the list but in the end I think we did ok!

Here is a list of 2011 projects and a run down of where we’re at :

– Figuring out our nook: The plan was to add some extra storage with more of a mud room feel. That is still the plan!  We narrowed down our choices and are almost 100% sure on what we’re going to do (ideas here) but we have to figure out what to do with the window coverings.  The room has windows on three sides but we need to be able to “close the curtains” for some privacy.  The other reason why we’ve waited is because I want to make sure we can take on the project as a whole instead of bit by bit.

– Finishing our bedroom:  We’re pretty much done! Last year’s list includes:curtains, bedside tables, bedding, lighting, headboard, and  mirror…  Good news is we have everything done and the bedside tables need one more coat of paint.  Bad news, I haven’t taken any photos to share. Stay tuned this month for all the details!

– TV Room:  We were looking for a TV bench that is nice looking and functional. Done!  Photos coming soon! (fyi blog resolution is to take photos of projects and share as they are done!)

– Framing projects – We added a series of prints in the living room, framed some art in the dining room and our bedroom.  We’re going to continue to add layers and art as we find and fall in love with it.

Not bad for a start, now the fun begins and we an start to think about this year!  I think the plan is to be more specific about some of our projects and add some layers to our existing space.  More on 2012 projects next week!
