resolutions


Initial thoughts on resolutions surrounding the blog for this year:

Generally speaking – tackling lots-a projects around the house
and the liberal incorporation of more white.
More specifically for “show and tell” I hope to share these projects
(not in any particular order):

1. Take pictures of our guest room and office
     to complete the home tour.
     Obviously not our guest room, but a great inspiration:

2. Update the outdated pictures from the home tour.
     An outdated picture of our living room:

3. Paint the TV console a lovely shade of white.
     The console now:

4. (Probably) sell the dining room china cabinet (again)
     and pick up a new project to substitute.
     The current china cabinet:

5. Make some chair seat covers for the dining room chairs.
     Perhaps something along these lines:

6. Dream up some new window treatments for the kitchen
     and be content with the things we can't change.
     AND pray for a miracle
     (that the landlord would allow us to paint the cabinets).
     The drab kitchen now:

7. Shop more second-hand –
     hit up auctions, thrift stores,
     garage sales, and flea markets.

8.  Rearrange and redecorate the house repeatedly
      and document the evolution.
      Pictures to follow!

*Additional impulsive projects to be determined.
*All resolutions are guaranteed to fluctuate.

  4. Can't wait to see what new project you tackle for the dining room hutch. It kills me that I had a dining table similar to the one in the picture from country living, and got rid of it. The one we have not is way better quality and came with a hutch, but the white is so very pretty. Sigh! Love your white decorating.

  5. If the landlord is smart, he/she will let you do whatever you want. You have some great ideas.
