Happy New Year Blog Buddies!

2010 marks the year our home turns 99. And boy do we have have plans for the year! Our house to-do list includes a new 2.5 car garage with rooftop deck, a kitchen remodel, new paint and floor resurfacing on the main level, a master bath remodel and possibly finishing the basement. It's shaping up to be a year full of drastic home improvement projects and I can't wait to share the adventure with you all.

We have a few projects nearing completion that will be popping up on this blog very soon including our HVAC system replacement (horror) story and the master bedroom patch-up after the wall tear-down. I have a plethora of decorating ideas and mucho renovation inspiration from some serious time spent browsing blogs over the holidays. I can't wait to get started!

That said, my New Years Resolution is to take the DIY decor bull by the horns and I'm excited to report the follow through already began at the precise moment this fabulous damask fabric materialized (no pun intended) in front of me. I knew I could not leave the store without it and 6 yards later, I will soon have the perfect DIY curtains in my stairway landing (after months of searching online for a killer curtain at a reasonable price to avail)! Wish me luck. :)

  3. I love your fabric choice and can see them on your stairway windows. That fabric would be cool as accents in the way of pillows, a bed pillow for 'poof',etc.
    You both sound very ambitious. Here's to a fun-filled industrious year!

  6. Thanks mom! I was actually thinking about trying to tie the fabric in with accents, and pillows would be so cute! We're ambitious but making it a point to not run ourselves into the ground this year. :)
