My Honey-Do List

Yes, you read that right...my honey-do list. I thought that if I posted my DIY remodel list on the blog for everyone to see, I would be more likely to actually follow through and do them. So, without further ado, here are the things I want to finish in 2011:
  • Garage - it is an unorganized death trap for anything not welcome in the house. My car and the motorcycle are parked in there, but so is a lot of other stuff. It has become so bad that there is a path to the door. The garage needs to be emptied and whipped into shape.
  • Curb Appeal - we have hardly touched the outside of the house. The flower beds are full of weeds and monkey grass, both of which need to go. I also think a new paint color for the shutters and front door would look better than hunter green. And a slew of other improvements need to be made.
  • Laundry Room - more of a hallway than a room. The laundry room is a tight space and I need to improve the functionality of it.
  • Master Suite - the most relaxing room in the house is actually the catch-all. Our master has a nice sitting area that is not used for sitting, it is a make-shift laundry folding/sorting area. Not anymore, I plan to make the master a relaxing, stress-free zone.
  • Guest Bath - a total overhaul. The plan is a new floor, new vanity and sink, and new light fixtures - all on a cheap budget.
  • Guest Bedroom - this room is far from guest welcoming. But with a little thrifty DIY-love, it will be a 5 star guest bedroom in no time.
  • Back Yard - just like the front yard, this space has hardly been touched. The back patio is a cracked concrete slab with minimal landscaping. With a little work, it could easliy become a cute gathering place.
Well, that is just a sampling of the things on my honey-do list. Now I just need to stay motivated to finish.

I'm glad I came across your mercury glass tutorial. I have a project ahead and this will be perfect. I am also working on our home one room at a time. I understand making a list of goals - seems to help me not feel so overwhelmed when I break it down like that.

That's a lot of work. But with perseverance, I'm sure you can finish all of that before the year ends. I hope you can share more pictures in the future. Good luck!
