Home Goals & Inspiration 2014!


Well, it's that time of year to start making plans for what I'm planning on doing with the house this year. Last years list, pretty much got thrown out the window when a few months later we decided to move.  It's ok, because now I get to make a new list.  :)

I always tend to add too much to my list and then on December 31st, feel like I didn't accomplish what I set out to do during the year.

I've shown here, what some of the plans were, and I'm still focusing on those. I've made a little of progress on master bedroom, which I'll show you soon. Everything else is the same.

So I thought for the sake of my sanity I would only pick 3 main things to get done  in 2014, and of I do more then it's a bonus.

1.  KITCHEN!

BEFORE - pics of when we looked at the house the first time!


Oh where do I begin with this kitchen.


  1. Too much wood going on in this room!
  2. The island is too small for my family!
  3. Very little/awkward storage!


THE PLAN!

1. PAINT THE DOORS!

What I love about this one is the crispness of the white cabinets and the darker bottom.


2. LARGE ISLAND!

Inspiration:

This island (minus the stovetop) is what I have in mind for my island.  Drawers in the middle, door on one side and move microwave into the island and add extra outlets. I also want the contrast of darker island.

3. Have a pantry installed on other side of window.


2. STAIRCASE!


  • Remove carpet, and refinish the wood.

I love the white spindles and darker banister and on  the threads on the staircase.



3. UPPER HALLWAY!





This is what the area looked like when we saw the house




And then it looked like this for a bit.




THINGS TO DO!


  • ORGANIZE! ORGANIZE!  New Filling cabinet, printer stand. New desk.
  • Shelves above desk.
  • paint accent wall.
  • New Chair.


I can't seem to find a inspiration pic that I like, so I'll leave you with the awful pic.  I hope it doesn't give you nightmares.


What are you plans for your home this year? 
And where do you find inspiration from?
