2015 Plans!

I know it’s been deadly quiet for the last month or so, but December was a busy month for us with our little one’s birthday, Christmas, and a family vacation.

Vacation
See? We do sometimes take breaks from the renovations!

But now we’re back in the action and ready to get started on some new projects. Since last New Year I shared our 2014 goals with you I thought  a recap was in order before getting into 2015.

Out of all the goals we set for last year only 2 didn’t get done (the portico and front staircase)! I think that’s pretty impressive! That’s impart because we added some projects to the roster throughout the year like Lizzie’s big girl room and the nautical half bath.

My favorite project of the year was definitely our foyer makeover with it’s crisp white wainscoting and industrial accent table! I love coming home to this space every evening!

Cody’s favorite project was the Screened-in porch makeover and the reclaimed wood buffet we built for it. We spent a ton of time out there this summer and fall!

2015 Plans

Now for the new plans.

Backyard

We’ve actually been working on a super big super secret (unless you follow us on facebook or instagram) backyard project since last summer. I’m hoping to spill the beans soon on this project as it’s already occupied a lot of time and we will probably be working on it throughout the following summer. Yep. It’s that big! And it’s going to be super awesome!

Half Baths and Laundry Room

If you’ve been wondering what’s taking so long with our half bath and laundry room makeover the answer is that it’s getting worked on when the weather’s too nasty to work on the backyard. It’s coming along but slowly.

Half bathroom makeover After we finish up the nautical half bath, we have another half bath in the foyer that we are going to tackle. I don’t even have a picture of this bathroom to share with you yet…….

Foyer

After the kitchen stairs makeover we’re pretty much experts at converting carpet to wood, so we’d like to finally finish up the foyer makeover by giving the stairs new life.

Guest Room

Did you even know that we have a guest room? Well currently it’s acting as a dog/craft room, but if my dad decides to visit again this year we’d like to get it functional and pretty for him.

Master Bedroom or Dining room?

I’ve pretty much designed a new master bedroom and dining room, but I’m not sure which one will get done first or if we’ll even have time for either one of them this year.

I have so many plans in my head right now that it’s hard to decide which project to start first. The backyard project is so gigantic that most other projects are going to be dependent on how long it takes us to complete it.

Wish us luck and Happy New Year!
