I have a lot of plans for the house but my goodness, when am I going to get them completed between keeping the house, homeschooling and other things? I’m not sure when it will all happen but here are some of the things I would like to do in 2014.
The master bedroom is definitely on the agenda.
I have the bedding. I know the paint color. What I don’t have are accessories, curtains and upholstery for my hope chest/storage chest.
Here is the bedroom now with no changes made.

This is going to be the new bedding. I’ve never had a white bed covering before so this is new territory to me but I’m loving the thought!

I would really like to do something unique in my stairwell. Make it a little more interesting!
And did you know that I have lived in this house 18 years and until 2 years ago I didn’t have 1 single curtain up? I had shades but no curtains. As it is the only curtain that I do have up is in my laundry room measuring about 12×18″. So, curtains are needful to give a more finished look. I doubt if I’ll get to ALL the windows, but I would like to do a few.
And there are many areas I desperately need to organize. As the kids are growing, that means bookshelves need to be decluttered, games need to be weeded out, shelves and cabinets gone through until everything looks orderly again. Oh, yes, and my closet. I have too many clothes and most of them don’t even work on me anymore.
So you can see I have a lot that needs to be done this year.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time and that’s what I’m hoping to do this year with my house. Work on one project at a time and do what I can.
But my family needs to come first. It’s very easy to get caught up in my own plans and neglect the family. I don’t want to do that.
