I’ve been following the January Cure over at Apartment Therapy. They’re only up to day 5 so you can catch up easily if you want to. Day one is make a list of projects to do in your house.
“Make a list of projects walk through your home and make notes on any trouble spots organized by room. You’ll want sections in your notes for the entryway, living room, bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. Start at the front door and do a thorough walkthrough, noting each area or item that needs a good cleaning, a de-cluttering or a re-organization.”
Walking around my house the list grows longer and longer, I’ve had a list going for a few months now. Some of this is stuff I actually want to do, and can do and some is wish list.
Foyer: Closet Knobs? Paint light? Paint walls? I feel like the hallways need a fresh coat of paint
Powder Room: New Sink, Take Wallpaper down, Paint walls (white? pale green? grey?) new white outlet, rug
Living room: New sofa and love seat, accessories
Dining Room: New frame for the art, take down the curtains, new simple curtains
Kitchen: Spot for mail, Paint, Tile back-splash in wet bar nook, wet bar cabinets, would love to rip them out but maybe new fronts. New knobs, new counters, new light fixtures, adjust stove, is the microwave up to code?
Family Room: New art? Touch up the chipped paint on the built in, new knobs, new lamps
Back hall closet: “Mudroom” cubbies and bench?
Porch: Paint the ceiling, New table, Ceiling fan with light
Outside: It’s January, but my list is new buses to block neighbors house, flowering shrubs, shade plants in bare spot, air conditioner screen and electrical box screen, fix brick walkway
Repaint? it’s not bad but would love to repaint the bookcases properly and paint the stairs too, Donate unused craft supplies
Would also love to re-carpet the stairs like Jenny did over at Little Green Notebook.
Our bathroom needs so much help.
My room: Hang art, necklace hanger
Kiki’s room: New light bulb, hang art, new rug
Mom’s room: New light
