My New Year Plans for Our House

My New Year Plans for Our House

I don’t tend to make new years resolutions, but I always make plans for the new year. The fresh new year just seems like a good time to get things done, full of motivation and eager to go. A time to finish jobs started in 2017 and start jobs dreamt about in 2017.

There is so much that we want to do to our house, but time and funds aren’t our friends so it is taking a lot longer than I would like it to. In 2018 I would love to transform the living & dining rooms, spruce up the existing kitchen & toilet and finally finish decorating Aria’s bedroom.

Aria’s bedroom has to be the longest bedroom makeover in history. It was a big job. We started by tearing off the yellow painted wallpaper and ripping up that nasty green carpet. The ceiling had to be chipped away. The walls needed to be plasterboarded and bonded and all kinds of stuff that I didn’t really understand. It took quite a while. We eventually wallpapered and painted the room in readiness for having the carpet fitted. There were bits that needed patching up but we got the main bulk of it done.

Fast forward several months and those bits that were waiting to be patched up are still waiting. There is stuff everywhere because I haven’t put the shelves on the wall yet and it’s a big disorganised mess. In 2018 I will sort this out.

I’ve been searching for bedroom inspiration, as although the main bulk and decor comes easily to me, I struggle to seek out all of those little decorative pieces that finish off a room. I’ve found this list of places to find bedroom decor inspiration super useful, how cool does the build your dream bed tool sound! I’ll definitely be checking all of these places out.

Where do you find inspiration for bedroom decor?

    I am like you and each DIY project seems to take forever. My 2018 goal is to stop procrastinating and finish off jobs that were started ages ago. Even if it’s just to finish hanging a few pictures on the wall x
