"A Look Back at the To Do List"

First things first.  May I offer my condolences to my fellow Panthers and Saints fans.  Unfortunately, both of my home teams fell in the NFL playoffs this weekend.  Tough losses, but great seasons by both teams.  I'm pretty bummed that it's almost all over.  I hate the end of football season, but I guess that just gives me more time to focus on design projects.

I can hardly believe that we've already reached the middle of January.   As I regroup for the new year and plan my 2014 project to do list, I thought I'd take a look back at some of the projects I SAID I would tackle in 2013.

First, there was the front door. I blogged about painting the inside of my front door back in December 2012.  I loved how something as simple as a little paint on the typically overlooked surface could add so much impact.
I'm pleased to report that I actually got this one done.  I even have plans to paint more of my interior doors.

I really loved how it looked during the holidays, providing yet another spot for a touch of Christmas.
Next, I SAID I was toying with the idea of adding a touch of coral to the kitchen, by way of new drapery.

Believe it or not, I actually got this one done too!  I love the pop of color in the kitchen.  It actually did a lot to make this space more cheery.  My only regret is that I didn't have the drapes lined.  I've learned that lining drapery really is a non-negotiable.  They hang so much nicer and look more..... substantial, if that makes sense. Adding it will likely be on my list for this year. 

The one project that I didn't get to was painting the vanity.


After seeing this image on one of my favorite blogs, I was convinced that this was my next upgrade to the master bath.  Unfortunately, it never happened and my bathroom still looks like this.....
But hey, there's always this year.  With at least one project to roll over from last year, the 2014 to do list seems to be growing in length. 
What projects do you have planned for this year?

I'm committed to updating my kitchen this year. Thanks for all the DIY ideas that will save us lots of money.

Hoping to paint at least 1 or 2 of our interior doors. We think it will add lots of warmth to our very white kitchen. The hard part will be picking the right shade of brown. Also considering painting our bathroom vanities. I think I'm going to wait and see how you do it, Cheryl, which may also help to convince my husband that they will look so much better painted!

The door looks great! I agree makes a big difference! Love your coral pop! The bathroom project is a little more time involved so I understand saving it for the new year!!
