2011 Project List

Happy New Year!  May 2011 bring you peace, love & joy.

Previously I posted my list of  goals for 2011 (you can view it here).  Many of them had to do with cleaning, organizing and turning my house into a home...(which I believe will in turn aid me in accomplishing most of the others that deal with becoming a better person and embracing the life I was given).  Great to have these goals down on paper, but I needed a plan.  So here is the list that will help me accomplish some of my 2011 goals, at least the ones that deal with organization, clutter, and making my house a home.


This list is loooong. However, in all fairness, this list is a comprehensive brain dump of everything I would like to accomplish or at least start this year.  It is by no means a list of everything I would like done around here but some of those big ticket items like gutting and remodeling the kitchen, moving walls, refinishing basements, residing the house, etc. etc. are for another year...paying off debt comes first.  These are projects I (with a little help) can do myself (with the exception of the bath remodel which we will hire out for).  For those projects that are blog worthy I will post in progress and completed pics.  For example,  I will not update you on cleaning out my email or organizing my favorites folder but I will gladly share with you my staircase, kitchen, bedroom, etc. transformations.

So for accountability reasons (and probably for no ones reading pleasure) here is the be updated regulary {I hope}:

  • paint trim (whole house)
  • paint front interior door
  • paint/refurbish interior doors
  • finish sofa table
  • paint kitchen / wall decor
  • replace remaining light switches
  • paint JT's baseboard
  • touch up JT's walls
  • paint/refinish stairs

 The planning is done....let the projects begin.

A tip for any yahoo email users or those who's email has a title of from that you can click on....when you click on it, it sorts all your email in your in box alphabetically. The nice thing about this is that you can easily go through an check all of the emails you get from say target or walgreens, those type of emails you sign up for but don't always want to read, you can delete in one easy step. It really does make purging emails so much easier.
