Summer Goals

Being homeowners means that your house to-do list is miles long, and your want-to-do list is even longer. That said, there are a few things that we want to try to accomplish this summer:

1. Turn up our curb appeal

Our house is the only one like it on our street, and dare I say, the only one of its kind in the neighborhood. The outside, much like the inside, has been sadly neglected and abused, so we'll be ramping up the TLC so that the outside starts to match the beautifully renovated inside! Stay tuned for our outside to-do list of summer projects and gardening.

2. Refinish this dresser
I'm thinking a deep dark stain, and pretty glass knobs. It will either stay in the living room, or move up to office. Or the attic, or the basement... ah the possibilities! ;-)

3. Refinish the floors in the living room and dining room
Nuff said. We're gonna try to DIY, so we'll let you know how that works out.

4. Paint the kitchen walls, and possibly the cabinets.
The plan is to paint the walls, and then evaluate whether the cabinets should be painted as well. We'll keep you posted.

5. Finish guest room, living room and master bedroom.
Our to-do list for the guest room is as follows, you can read about what's still to do in the other rooms here and here.
  • Cut, install, and paint baseboards in guest room.
  • Finish outlining and painting damask design on wall.
  • Buy rug for guest room.
  • Cover or paint chair for desk
  • Make cushion for window seat
  • Paint doorways
6. Begin next four big projects; the front and back entryways, the office and the basement.
Stay tuned for posts about these spaces in the next few weeks. UPDATE: Front entryway is done!

I know that this list is ambitious to say the least, but at least we are shooting for the stars, right? ;-)
