New Year's Resolutions for Your Home
My biggest new year’s resolution for 2019 is to do some major home improvement...all by myself. (My motto: a new year = a new organized, updated home.) So, it is no wonder that my 2019 goals include getting my house in order. Cleaning up. Organizing. Decluttering. Renovating. Redecorating. And all on a budget. A big part of this new year’s resolution will include constant streaming of HGTV and binge watching every episode of Design on a Dime and Fixer Upper - for design and remodeling inspiration.
If I’m successful this year, I’ll be saying goodbye to the dated, 1970s wood paneling in my family room. Adios to the floral wallpaper and blue toilet in my master bathroom. And ciao bella to the overstuffed, gold suede living room couch (which I think I bought from a mid-90s Pottery Barn catalog.) Yep, new year means out with the old and in with the new. I’ll be trading this all in for new, budget-friendly renovations and Joanna Gaines-inspired new home décor – without breaking the bank and maybe even saving some money along the way.
