The Husband and I have been making a list of house projects for 2013. A list keeps us on track. A list keeps us from starting a random project on Saturday morning. A list gives us a reality check with how much we have to spend. But in the end, a list (to us) is only a suggestion. No pressure…are ya ready?
Here’s the list…
The Master Bedroom
(here it is now)
I want to do built-in shelves and a window seat kinda like this one from Tar Paper Crane (so glad The Husband got a load of new wood working equipment for Christmas!)
And we need a chest of drawers that will also hold the DVR box! It’ll look a little bit like this from Four Generations One Roof
To finish out the bedroom, I may want to change up the duvet. Yes, the Master bedroom has a major overhaul coming!
The Dining Room
I’m adding drapery panels and chair covers in the dining room, see the windows? I’m not going to cover any part of them, just panels on either side to soften the edges-
And we really want to add a little built in to the dining room, something like this:
The built in would go here:
The Screen Porch
Our favorite coffee spot needs a few finishing touches…
I ‘m considering painting the inside white and also want to make slip covers for these chairs. (I want them to have some sort of blue or teal)
The Husband just started making a farm table and benches to go here:
This was his idea and I’m happy about it, we have room in here for a much bigger table!
(Anybody in metro Atlanta want to buy this table and chairs? We got it at World Market less than a year ago??? )
We had a great landscape plan drawn up by the professionals at Pike Nursery – We won’t tackle the whole thing this year but we’re planning on redoing some of the beds and doing a paver patio in the back yard and maybe we’ll even get to the pondless waterfall! It will look something like this…
The Landscaping project opens a can of worms, The Husband’s redoing the deck stairs to empty into the back yard in a different place!
There are two staircases here, one to the upstairs and one to the basement. The Husband wants to get the carpet off of them. They’ll look something like Rhoda’s at Southern Hospitality when we’re done…
Gallery Photo Wall
I’m going to finally get to my gallery wall. I miss having the photos on the wall going upstairs. Here’s the one I had on Willow Creek:
The Basement Level
The Husband’s been working on the basement already this year. He’s *widened a door opening and *installed a double door going into the room that he’s storing his wood working equipment. And he took out a sliding glass door and *installed a pretty double french door.
He also plans on taking out two windows in the great room of the basement and putting in doors. (That’s part of the landscaping plan!)
Lastly, we’d like to do a little remodel of the basement kitchenette. It’s tiny, housing only a fridge, sink and cabinets, but just look at this kitchenette I found online! (Everything here is from Ikea! Too modern for me but I like the general idea!)
And then there’s my project room closet which is in desperate need of shelving and organization!
(Did anyone notice that The Husband will be doing an awful lot this year!!!?)
We’ll adjust this list as we go and my guess is that much of it will be on our 2014 Project List-
Is anybody else slightly overwhelmed?
~Love love love to you my friends~
Oh, wait a minute…do you have any projects planned????
