2011 Home Goals Recap - Midway Point

I just want to say that I'm in a really good mood today!  Tired as all get out, but totally in a good mood!  The first song I heard when I got in my car this morning was LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem which is totally my favorite song right now!  So that really got me ready to go today!!! 

At the beginning of the year I made a list of a TON of goals to be finished around my house this year.  That's right THIS YEAR... not next or 10 years down the road.  I'm making myself stick to it!  And here's the progress as of now... Since I consider June 25th the midway point of the year - my birthday which makes my half birthday Christmas - I thought it would be a good time to recap. 

Living Room:
  • To get new rug
    • Uncheck
  • To get chair reupholstered
    • Uncheck, but do have slipcover so maybe half check
  • To finish ottoman for coffee table or get new coffee table
  • Fix all paint around edges
    • Half Check - Halfway done
  • New Carpet or if I can convince Mr. K, hardwood laminate.
    • Uncheck, but have convinced Mr. K that's what we are going to do! YAY

  • To Set up hooks and bench seat
  • Fix up walls with some sort of chalk wall
    • Uncheck
  • Hooks for mops etc.
    • CHECK then Uncheck - Hooks failed!

Master Bedroom:

  • Fix all edge painting

    • Uncheck - Might paint it!
Upstairs Hallway:
  • Paint and hang picture ledge

Not too shabby...
Out of 32 Items, 11 are completely done and 5 others are halfway done!  I think that's a pretty good place to be at the half way point! 

In the next couple of weeks, I hope to:
  • Complete my gallery wall
  • Complete my new bench for the bedroom
  • Completely finish the pantry
  • completely finish the edging
That will knock those off!  Biggest feats we'll have - Banquet in kitchen!  Here's hoping that's done by the end of the summer!  YAY!!!

How are your home goals going to for 2011 so far?!?  I'd love to hear!  I've added a link at the bottom so you can link up if you want!  :)
Happy Gateway to the Weekend!
