It was so much fun setting home goals last year, and actually accomplishing them, that I thought I would do the same thing this year. It's nice to have somewhat of a game plan. My game plan is always evolving, but I do have some things I would like to accomplish in my home this year.
First up will be updating our home gym. Right now it's an uninspiring space. It is filled with outdated, and in some cases, non-working equipment. Not to mention that huge tube television in the corner.
My husband and I both work out as do both of our kids. We need a gym that is both functional and stylish. The gym has good bones, but just needs the DIYbyDesign touch.
I can't wait to tackle this project.
Next up is a project that is a bit controversial in our home. I have been thinking for a while that I am over this burgundy color in the living room and dining room. I'm ready to lighten things up. I'm not sure which direction I'm going yet...
Maybe Wythe Blue...Benjamin Moore's color of the year.
I would like to create a gallery of family photos in my upstairs hallway.
I have been wanting to do this for a while now...2012 is the year.
Right now it seems to be the home for all artwork that has come from other rooms.
I would like to replace the carpet on the stairs and upstairs hallway. However, replacing the carpet will create a domino effect. If I replace the carpet, I would want to stain the railing and stairs a darker color to match the hardwood on the first floor. If I do that, I will probably have to have the foyer and upstairs hallway repainted. This project will require a bit more thought.
It will eventually be addressed, but potentially not in 2012.
Last, I would like to install a chandelier in my master bathroom. We have vaulted ceilings in the bathroom and the addition of a chandelier would be great. The awesome update of the new frame for my mirror from MirrorMate Frames has inspired me.

How about you...what are your goals for 2012.
