New Years "Home" Resolutions 2013

Here are the BIG projects you can look forward to this year on my Blog-

Although I gave my husband permission to quit as my personal "Trim Guy," I have just a couple of very small easy projects I think he can handle this year ( I hope)!
I would like to add molding above all the doors,
so the "before" on the left becomes more like the "after" (from our Master Bathroom) on the right.

I would also like to add Molding to the inside of these arches.

Paint my son Jackson's Room with stripes like this (photo found on Houzz).

Paint Powder Bath (I have already ordered this stencil from royaldesignstudio.com)

Update the Master Bedroom.  I am working on redoing the bedding and nightstands.  For Christmas I got this new Duvet from West Elm (on clearance for $60 instead of $120 yeah!).   Now I just need new pillows and a throw for a whole new look.
 I also got a couple of these foyer tables from World Market (regularly $200, but I was able to get them 25% off so $150 each).  I am using them for nightstands.  I love the shape and style, however the color doesn't work for my room -but I can change that!

Once summer comes I know I'll be looking to make improvements outside as well and one big project is my Garden, it just needs a fence.  I still can't decide if I should go with a wood slat look or basic black wrought iron.  I found this cute inspiration photo on Pinterest.

And if you read my post on Weight Lifting -as far as personal resolutions go, I am down 3 pant sizes.  I still have to get down 2 sizes more to be back where I was before, so I'll keep on lifting and see if it happens! I carry all my weight in my backside and thighs so yes -I own pants in 6 different sizes (which  actually came in quite handy this last pregnancy)!
