Home Goals: How Did We Do?

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Every year in January I post our hopes for improvements around the house and earlier this year I posted our Home Goals for 2012.  Here’s the checklist on how far we got!

1)  Prettier powder room?  Check!  New beadboard wallpaper, darker paint for contrast, and a new mirror refreshed this space, full tour here.

2)  Build a Bench.   Check!  I dreamed of a potting bench for years and Matt built us one this summer.  Woot!  All the snaps and the full how to here

Home Goals 2012!

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Leave it to Nester to kick my boo-tay in gear every year and get me to put pen to paper and make a list of goals for around the house.  So I did.  Last year, I did alright, met at least 80% or something like that.  This year, I’m feeling just as ambitious.  I’ve got big dreams so let’s take a peek at the *official* CG Home Goals for 2012.

#1  Prettier Powder.  First up, I’m giving our powder room a mini makeover ~ it’s in need of some piz-azz.  It’s been that soft RH Silver Sage color for years but I’m over it. Yesterday I installed some beadboard wallpaper, and I just need to repaint and install the new mirror. Gonna be gorg! powder room makeover

 

#2  Build a Bench   I’d like to build a long potting bench. I’ve always wanted a potting bench.  I’m thinking of building it with some local resalvaged wood and adding a little sink, it could would fit along this narrow strip of unused space on the side of the house. I could plant and grow and store all things garden right here.
