What's Your New Year's Resolution for Your Home?

What's Your New Year's Resolution for Your Home?

I have a laundry list of chores and renovations to get done and furnishings to buy to perk up my home this year. A part of me thinks I always will, but some have higher priority than others. For example, my kitchen is aching for a new paint job, and I'm on a never-ending hunt for the perfect console table. Tell me in the comments: What's your New Year's resolution for your home?

i just want my home to be mine...i just moved in. im only 20 years old, so its my first place out on my own. im so proud of it, but when i walk in, it still feels like it could be anyones place. im a busy girl, so i want to come home and have a sense of comfort and familiarity that makes me happy and relaxed to be home.

Move! Then, maybe paint and buy new living room furniture (the one we have right now is 'destroyed' by our son), and a headboard for our bed!! :D

We're completing a full home renovation (took her the studs and built her back up again) and have dwindleed our budget to pennies. I still have to do our master bath. It's nothing but pipes right now. So, my project for now is building a master bath possibly from builders leftovers on Craigslist. At least my kitchen rocks....

My resolution is to clear up a lot of my clutter. I have so many newspapers piled up but I feel guilty to throw them out with having read them all, but I've gotten rid of a lot lately.

My first comment after lurking for over a year! :) I'm almost finished painting the inside of the house. I just finished the master bedroom, the master bathroom is next, and then the office. After that, I need to look for a great laundry room color!!

i'm moving into a new suite on january 3rd - so first off, i resolve to get unpacked and have everything in (relative) order by january 7th before i start classes again. this is sort of related to the house i think: i resolve to use my art supplies more often and set aside time each week to do so for at least an hour! also, to clean/tidy one section of the house (bathroom, laundry room etc) everyday so that i don't have a whole apartment to clean on the weekend.

Hmmm...first off, I need to finish putting together our spare bedroom/office. We recently painted and redecorated, but it's not entirely finished. I am also painting our upstairs' bathroom, so that needs to be finished. Lastly, my husband is going to redo our laundry room for me, make it a little neater and put one of those closet organization systems into my bedroom closets. Busy year!

My resolution for "home" this year is to move it again (we're an active duty military family) to wherever Uncle Sam sends us, with as little damage done to our belongings as possible! So I'll be sorting, donating, yard saling non-essentials and then packing things as efficiently and safely as possible. Happy New Year, and wish us luck!
