Home Improvements 2010
After almost 5 years of making this little ranch our home and working hard to put our pennies away according to the guidance of Dave Ramsey...we finally have some free cash to do a little home renovating/decorating.
You'll remember that first up was our little headboard addition taken from the list of un-finished (and un-begun) house projects I wrote up approximately 3 years ago.
In the interest of accountability and because I like sharing the days of our lives with you, I thought I'd post a new list here:
Casa Leipprandt's 2010 Facelift
Decide on & purchase new couches (or couch + two chairs?)
New coffee table
Paint the fireplace?
Replace crown molding
Install molding under chair rail?
Chalkboard pantry door project?
New chair for corner of room
Matching side tables
Mirrors above headboard
Artwork/decoration for center wall
New ceiling fan
Paint crown molding
Tile where current linoleum is
We'll be picking and choosing projects to start (and hopefully finish) this year and I'm hoping for some design advice and opinions from the peanut gallery along the way. And yup, recently finished projects are included because that's how I roll. I also like to make to-do lists that include "brush teeth" and "eat lunch" so I'm assured of some real progress throughout the day.
There are certainly more to be added to this list...but I'm pretty pooped just thinking about these. And that new front door slated for February 2010?
