2014 Goal- The Finish Line


With the new year a week old, I have finally come up with a plan on how I am going to focus my energy!  I have decided to make 2014 the year of the finish!  We have owned this house for just over three years, and we have accomplished quite a bit of DIY in that time.  That being said, I have a friend who says their house is a 90% house.   Meaning that once a project gets 90% done their minds think of it as finished and move on to the next thing.  This so happens in our house!

In order to give my brain a little bit more piece of mind, I’ve decided to finish the little things that are almost done in the rooms we’ve pretty much tackled already.  No more trying to remember a list of bits and pieces that I need to get to.

I spent some time this afternoon going through each of the rooms I want to tackle and making a list.  Some of the tasks will literally take a few minutes, like replacing the lighting fixture globe in the downstairs bathroom.


Others are a bit more complicated, like beefing up the mantle in our living room and covering the brick with tile.


So here it is, my “Finish Line” list of 2014~
