Happenin' to My House in 2013 - Progress

Time to check the progress on that New Year's house to-do list I posted way back in January (seems like so long ago).  Let's see how I'm doing.

#1 - Finish Savannah's Big Girl Room Makeover - DONE!

Before: needed art above the bed and dresser and a new rug.


#2 - Finish Madeline's Nursery - DONE!

Before:  I ran out of time/energy/money on the nursery.  I'm still on the hunt for art and accessories to finish the space. 



#3 - Bonus Room Reno - In Progress
Before:  I soooo do not have another reno project in me right now (see here for my last one) but the toys have taken over my living room and with two kids we need more space for them to play.  Our long neglected bonus room/workout space/furniture graveyard/toy dump needs a complete makeover.  This will require lots of brain power and probably will not occur until mid-year.

Currently:  Still working on this one.  It has turned out to be more of a face lift versus a major overhaul, which is actually better for my finances and my sanity.  More details on this soon.

#4 - Finally Fill Up My Walls - No Progress (Boo!)
Before:  I have bare spaces that need to be filled and lots of great family photos that have never been properly framed and displayed.  This is a project that I definitely want to tackle this year.

Currently:  Haven't gotten around to this at all.  This shelf is in the kitchen and I haven't been able to commit to any artwork for it.  Just can't find the perfect thing.  I do have plans to create a couple of family photo displays in the living room and the stairwell, just need to select frames and photos (am waiting for a trip to Ikea to snag some cheap frames).

#5 - Create My Own Workspace - No Progress (Boo!)
Before:  My husband has a whole office but I do my work on the sofa which is not the most convenient place when you have a 3 year old sitting beside you who likes to punch the buttons on your computer.  I would like to find some corner of my house that can be transformed into my own personal workspace.  The desk will probably only be large enough for my laptop, but I'll take whatever I can get.

Currently:  No real progress has been made.  There's probably a reason this was last on my list.

Well, two out of five ain't bad, right?
