The BIG list

So, after making the little list, I started to think about the major goals I have for the house. I've had a pretty complete picture in my head for a little while, but I don't think I've written it down in any of my various notebooks. So here we go.

Master bedroom:
  • Somehow build a bigger closet/improve closet situation
  • Purchase (maybe build?) headboard and bed
  • Replace dresser hardware
  • Hang some floor to ceiling curtains
  • Big ol' rug
  • Some giant (or just big impact) art-ish thing above the headboard
  • No more bedskirt
  • Door hardware to match the rest of the house (maybe just a whole new door)
  • Refinish floor
  • Replace dresser hardware

Upstairs bath:
  • Above the door shelf
  • Pedestal or wall mounted sink
  • Mirror collage
  • Replace tile (this one probably won't happen, but it's on my dream list)
  • Medicine cabinet
  • Tile baseboard
  • New door/hardware

Eleanor's room:
  • Paint, probably a greeny blue
