-- 2011 Home Goals --

So, this is the year that I'm hoping to actually make my house a home.  Yeah, yeah... I know what you are thinking...
She's been there for 3 whole years and it's not a home yet? 

Well, no...  It's not.  I can't help it.  I get sidetracked.  I got a new job, a new puppy, and married in those three years and welp, the house has suffered!  So... I'm ready to take it back!  Here are my goals for the house, room by room. 

Living Room:  Remember my inspiration from the other day? 
To get new rug
To get chair reupholstered
To finish ottoman for coffee table or get new coffee table
Fix all paint around edges
New Carpet or if I can convince Mike, hardwood laminate. 

Pantry
To Set up hooks and bench seat
Fix up walls with somesort of chalk walk
Hooks for mops etc.
Organize shelves

Something A la This!

Upstairs Hallway:
Paint and hang picture ledge

That list is probably supposed to include more per room.  Or at least I'm sure it will grow throughout the year!

Stay tuned!  Tomorrow I'm posting a house tour... should be interesting!

But for now...how do you think I could incorporate this into my house?!?
How awesome!
