Looking back on 2013, I did get a few things accomplished in the new condo through the year...
Above clockwise from top left corner: Guest Bedroom, Guest Bath, Balcony,
Master Bedroom, Lumbar Pillows, Dining Room, Study Nook, Master Bath.
Setting my sights on 2014, I'm kicking it off by finally getting started on what I'm calling "Project Add Character". Look for the hashtag combination of #addcharacter & #trim on Twitter to follow my progress. I'm working with Home Depot Canada and Para Paints on this trim project and I'm confident that this will my best DIY yet!
This trim project will be the last significant DIY for awhile, but there are a few other things to finish in the condo this year:
Switch out four remaining ugly lever door handles for crystal knobs like this one. Done Find (hopefully on Kijiji) a round glass top dining table to improve flow. Done January! Purchase 2 comfortable counter height stools for the kitchen island. Done January!
- Figure out where and how to use these chinoiserie panels. Still thinking about it!
Change bathroom light fixtures to something less boring and more stylish like these. Done September!
- Add a small piece of furniture to the master bedroom for extra storage. 2015 for sure!
Once I've crossed all of the items off the list above, it will be time to start saving for a getaway. I haven't really been on vacation (work trips don't count) since I visited Paris in October 2012. Both Heather of Habitually Chic and Tim of Design Maze have recently taken European vacations and their photos have given me the itch to travel. I am confident that I'll be taking a fabulous trip this fall.
"Cheers" to 2014!!
