{2012 Home Goals}

I decided to join the linky party over at Nesting Place & document my home goals for the year.

We always have some kind of project going on in our house but we decided to prioritize them this year so that we actually start getting stuff accomplished versus a million projects half done.

First off is the laundry room
I shared with y'all our plan for this room & I'm excited about getting it done although it'll take some time because we don't have a money tree in the backyard. 

{The dirt on the door is from my husband.  He's a farmer hence he's dirty.}

We want to remove the window & door on this side of the room.  Since installing the stairs at the french doors we don't use this door anymore.  Our goal is to drywall it & put 2 of the IKEA Hemnes cabinets there for extra storage.

There's no lighting in this room besides the lamps I put in there so we'll fix that too.  I want 2 of the Turner light fixtures to go above the cabinets. 

We need a new floor in here too. 

As you can see from this picture we need to clean out the junk.  The room normally looks 50% worse than this but I actually got rid of some stuff the other day. 

On the other side of the room is the washer & dryer.

I want to add some cabinets above the washer & dryer. 
You are getting a sneak peek of the black too!
One day we'll replace the w&d with the front loaders but not until these stop working. 
There's a lot going on in this room & I'm trying to be patient but it's hard. 

The next space is the living room.

Please excuse the mess.
Our entire house is a disaster zone right now.
I find playing with Landry is more appealing than cleaning. 

We purchased the new sofa in September but it was delivered the week before Thanksgiving.  It gives us tons of space & actually makes our small living room feel larger.  We are thinking about moving it to another space in the room but haven't decided on that just yet.

{Yes, thats"s our surround sound on the ground.  Remember I've been painting the buffet}

This room needs a lot of work.  All of it is cosmetic. 

The wall behind the tv is going to receive an amazing treatment too.  That'll be talked about in detail in another post.

The next space is the bathroom.

We have one bathroom in the house.  We hope to change that in the next few years.  It works for us because there are only 2 of us that use the bathroom.  It's never been a problem in 6 years. 

I have some major plans for this room.
New mirror, lighting, vanity, floor & a board & batten treatment.

So there's our list of home goals. 

What are you home goals for 2012? 

I'm linking up at Nesting Place.


  1. excited to see the year progress as you tackle each of these :-).

  2. Great goals! My laundry room is my nemesis. It is just one of those 'catch-all roooms' and becomes an out of control cluttered mess faster than my kitchen countertops! Good luck!
