2011 : the year of projects

I have my new year's resolutions, but they are fairly boring and typical (the whole be healthy/tidy/positive yada yada.)
BUT my goals for 2011. My to-do list. Most of what I want to accomplish.
All revolve around this house.

Its been interesting that the longer we're in this house the more we get each room and it's purpose, the way it functions for us and what we want it to be. In some rooms that's a coat of paint (in theory - famous last words) and in others its full-on overhaul from top to bottom. The problem is that the more we understand and make plans the more I want to get started! I'm excited to see the progress and learn more about the process. Of course that takes time and moolah so we need to take things one step at a time.

In the rooms we want built-ins I am all over Ana White's website and am determined that my husband and I can tackle some of these and become quite the handypeople. Have you ever tried any of her pieces? Any home projects on your plate for 2011?

I want to get the last three rooms in our house repaired and painted. Then I need to tackle the basement. One word for that...ugh!
