My Project To-Do List for 2014

I'm excited to get started on some projects around the house now that the holiday season is over and (mostly) cleaned up and packed away.   The blogs that I visit have inspired so many ideas, and then there's Pinterest that always seems to lead me down a path of "I could do that!".   Here are some of the projects, both large and small, that I'd like to tackle in the coming months:

Sew pillow covers out of old sweaters

Frame sheet music for our piano room wall

Do a trash-to-treasure with some old photo frames and some inexpensive printed burlap images

Slip cover two chairs in my living room

Paint a thrift-store end table

Paint my daughter's bedroom furniture

Make a headboard for my daughter's bed

Make some sort of art for my daughter's bedroom walls

Make (buy?) curtain panels for the living room

Paint the living room walls (and the connecting foyer, stairwell, and upstairs hall)

Make faux mercury glass vases for the mantel

Make decorative wall art for a couple empty spots around the house

Find a coffee table to paint as a trash-to-treasure 

Wow... I didn't realize my list had gotten so long!    Maybe I'll give myself more than just "the coming months" to get these projects done!

How about you? What projects do you have lined up for the next little while?  I'd love to hear about them - please leave a comment to share your fun plans!


  1. My head is spinning thinking of all your projects! It's very brave of you to be able to write them all. I'm afraid if I do so myself, I'll just go back to bed until 2015!

    1. I know, Magali, mine too! And I thought of a few more that I forgot about in my list above. Well, one day and one step at a time. Should be fun! I look forward to what you've got going on this year.
