12 House Goals for 2012

Last year, I made 11 house goals for 2011, and I failed miserably at completing those goals. The hustle and bustle of life and $$$ took the wheel instead, which led to only two things being marked off of the list. This year I am hoping for significantly more progress, so let’s all cross our fingers in hopes for more improvement around the home.
1. Two new bedside tables for the master bedroom
2. Two new lamps for the master bedroom
After I accomplished goals one and two:
Bedroom Makeover
3. Patio added to the back of the house
4. Have bedroom closet fixed and shelving added
5. Re-design flowerbeds in front of house
6. Re-paint back door
7. Add closets to the laundry room
8. New rug for the living room
9. New bedside table(s) for the guest bedroom
10. New lamp(s) for the guest bedroom
11. Add mirror/art over buffet
12. Hang art over dresser in bedroom
I’m setting the bar really high, but I figure if I can actually mark off half of the list then I have made huge progress. These projects aren’t exactly on the cheap side! What I’d really love to do is put new hardwood floors down in the living room and dining room, but I’m not sure if that’s even in the realm of possibilities. We actually have the original hardwoods right now, but it lets in SO MUCH cold air during the winter that one will nearly freeze to death, which in turn makes the electric bill reflect that.
So, do you have any house goals this year? I’d love to see your list!

  1. how about..."get a house" as a house goal. That's what Judd and I need to do. Except that probably won't happen until next year.

    Oh and I hate to tell you but we have new hardwood floors and cold air still comes in like crazy through them. They are beautiful but COLD.
