I find it tricky to keep up with goals I set unless I break them down into smaller pieces. figured, as a syllabus meets accountability system of sorts, it would be great to outline what I have in store for over the next month and a half.
#1 Major Overhaul of the Half Bath
I’ve worked on the half bath for a few hours on Monday while AJ took the kids out. The walls got plastered and sanded… three times. I’m writing this post while I wait for hopefully the last coat to dry. Throughout this next month and a half I’d like to be able to reveal, in stages, a new paint color, a new pedestal sink, hopefully a new floor and mirror and some DIY artwork inspired by our beach time this past summer.
#2 Bold and the Beautiful Office Makeover
This is the last time you will see the office looking like this. It is a perfectly neutral color scheme but we have in mind something a little more daring (inspired by our former living room… hint hint). I’d love to repaint the desk, most likely a similar color to what it is now and pop some new pulls on it. I’m hoping to also do an organizing post after I tackle the Marie Kondo method of decluttering office supplies.
#3 Curtains Curtains Curtains
Pick out and hang curtains in the office and dining room. If they aren’t the identical they should definitely coordinate because you can easily seem them from each room. Have you ever used drop cloths? I’m wondering about doing this because curtains are so expensive… but I also don’t want it to look like I have hung drop cloths from my windows either. 🙂
#4 Guest Bedroom Progress
We are having overnight guests in March so that’s always motivation for me to get my bum in gear with the guest bedroom. We have a headboard that I’ve never revealed (THIS is the one I purchased) because we don’t have a bed to put it on (imagine that). I’d love to share with you a new bed with new linens, new curtains and a cornice in that space. I’ve been brainstorming adding some navy to most of our rooms to have them flow together and am toying with the idea of THIS incredibly simple bedding from Birch Lane… I can see some fun accent pieces to go with it!

Do you have an manageable goals that you can tackle by the end of February in order to keep yourself on target for your 2016 goals or resolutions? I’d love to hear them!
