This post is not really about New Year's resolutions, which, for me anyway, are way too easy to break. It's just a little (random) to-do list. Because, I've seriously got things to do.
- Finish powder room addition
- Clear out my bathroom sink drain
- Finish my sewing armoire
- Find storage space for fabric
- Re-pillow the living room sofa
- Paint Betty's painting
- Make new dust ruffles for twin beds
- Slipcover nasty wingback chair in dining room
- Recover dining room chair bottoms
- Clean bathroom vent
- Reevaluate and tweak TV and hall walls
- Start couponing
- Clear off carport and KEEP it clear
- Build dog kennel stand
- Shed a few pounds
- Cull my furniture collection
- Stain back steps
- Install backdoor screen door
- Acid stain carport
- Plant spring garden
- Build gate to backyard to trap two bad Yorkies
- Build or purchase a coat rack (for living room or outside back door)
- Organize and prioritize my inspiration folder
Relax, don't un-follow me yet -- I promise I won't be taking pictures and posting about everything on the list.
The biggest project on the list? We're carving a powder room out of a tiny 3'x8' space that was a stairway to the attic in the kitchen. The stairs were never built back after a fire in 1968 and the awkward space (to put it kindly) was incorporated into the kitchen, which never really worked.
During the kitchen reno we just walled it up -- along with a new toilet, a couple of rolls of insulation, a box of tile and that dustpan I looked high and low for. We recently opened it up from the hall side, adding double doors I found at my local Restore for $20.
There are issues with the doors (as you could see if I could find my camera cord) but I'm determined to make them work. I'm thinking I'll remove the top panels and replace them with glass.
Here are a few pictures from my bathroom idea folder....

I hate I can't credit all of these pictures. I collected most of them before I was blogging.
Of course, my space is about the size of a bathtub but I hope to make it beautiful.
