House Goals 2014

(I'm having some technical difficulties with Part Three of the DIY Bed post- so I am skipping ahead to this post! Thanks for your patience!)

House Goals 2014

We have been in our house since September, without any major changes to the house... 
like, literally.
We did install a pull-out garbage can in the kitchen. 
And I did paint our french doors...
But that is it. 
So today I'm putting together my list of goals for the rest of the year (ideally before baby comes in June!) And even tho I really don't want to, I'm including pictures of what my house looks like right now, in its very raw, post Christmas, state.
No judging.

I will address each of the kids room in they're own post. This is already crazy long and the rooms are identical. 

As you can see our house is a hodge podge of trim color, craftsman details, cottage influence and builder grade materials. All in all not a bad starting point, but my main goal is to lighten up the whole house and upgrade finishes. Thankfully we have good bones and we won't be spending any money on structural changes (unless my husband gets his way with the master bath!) Since our budget is limited, we are going to have to get creative, but that is my favorite part!

I will be posting some mood boards as I get closer to tackling each room, so you can see what direction I want to take this house!

Phew! Lots to get done before baby gets here!

By the way, we get to find out what our little bun is TOMORROW!!
