2012 DIY Home Decor Goals
I’m a face paced, task oriented person. In other words, I like to get things done and I like to do it quickly. I’m that person that always needs to be reminded to stop and smell the roses, but still doesn’t even when reminded. Heck, I hate even pausing to go to the bathroom when I’m in the middle of a project! It’s just plain annoying if you ask me. I don’t think I’ve ever gone to the bathroom in the middle of a shoot or fashion show. EVER!
All of this to say that owning a home sure has tested this part of my personality. I just want to be able to do everything I’m dreaming about now, and then sit back and enjoy it once it’s finished. However, that’s just not reality unless you have a never ending supply of money.
So, to get my fix of accomplishment and progress while avoiding the destruction of my bank account, I’ve come up with a 2012 DIY Home Decor Goal list because of course I’m also addicting to lists and checking things off.
Paint my office, bedroom and hallway white.
Paint my doors and windows black in my office and kitchen
Level the dirt in the backyard, install the sprinkler system and plant grass.
Build a fauxdenza
Install art hanging system and create art work for kitchen.
Create the family photo wall in the hallway and turn my mini library into a mess.
Rip out the carpet in the office and bedroom. Stain and seal the concrete.
Change the mirrors in the master bathroom, paint the bathroom cabinets and get hardware for the cabinets
Find cool area rugs for the office and master bedroom
Build a floating desk for the office.
Get new bedding for the master bedroom.
This is obviously an ambitious and possibly expensive list. But I have some DIY money saving tricks up my sleeve, and a load of paint left over from painting done earlier this year. =) Stay tuned for DIY updates in the new year.
