Home Decor-Related New Year's Resolutions

Open House: What Are Your Home-Related New Year's Resolutions?

A few close friends of mine are moving into their dream homes in early 2011. As you may imagine, their to-do lists are miles long, full of plans to repaint, retile, tear down walls, and in general, create a lot of mayhem in the New Year. Of course, this temporary mayhem will yield some amazing long-term results in terms of their homes' beauty and functionality.

My home-related New Year's resolutions are a bit more modest than my pals' plans. Since I live in an older home, a lot of my resolutions involve maintenance: scrubbing down the deck when the torrential rain stops, refinishing the kitchen floors, and giving the chimney a proper sweep are at the top of my list. I have left a little room for fun though — including rearranging some family photos on a new wall and switching around artwork.

Tell me, what are your home-related New Year's resolutions?

Mostly cosmetic things, not so much renovations, since I'm renting. I need to get garden furniture Plant some more plants and vegetables on top of the spring bulbs I planted in fall I want to always keep the house as neat as though I was expecting guests Decorate more, which is something I haven't done in a while. I definitely need some home made art work on those walls.
