I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to accomplish in 2022. I’m not a huge fan of resolutions, but I like to make a list of things I intend to accomplish. Once I write it down, it feels more tangible and something I can revisit and reevaluate as the year goes on.
So here’s my list of goals and intentions for our home in 2022.
1. Complete a One Room Challenge – Room TBD
I’ve been following lots of accounts during the fall and spring One Room Challenge (ORC) and have loved seeing the process of rooms come to life. I really wanted to join in the fall but knew I couldn’t commit myself to it with everything else going on in life. But now I’m putting it out there that I want to participate in the spring challenge and hope to start planning for it soon!
2. Finish the flooring (including baseboards)
We started replacing the floor in September and got the majority of it completed by the end of October; however, we’re still have our closet and stairs to finish. Baseboard material has been in and out of stock (and hella expensive) so we’ve been monitoring that to finish out the project. 95% club.
3. Figure out a Lego storage solution because my current situation is driving me bonkers
Lego rule everything around me right now and it’s driving me bonkers. My hutch is filled with legos, my vintage cabinet is filled with legos. There are legos in every crevice of our home. While I love the creativity that comes with building and imagining, I must find a solution to contain it. If you’ve figured this out, please share!
4. Add a fireplace and build out the nook in our primary bedroom
We’ll be moving Ona out of our room soon and that nook area will be home to an electric fireplace and some kind of built-in storage. Our home lacks storage (we have zero linen closets!) and I really need some help in that department.
5. Learn how to build new cabinet doors for our guest bathroom
I want to learn and try something new in 2022 this year and I think it’s going to be building new cabinet doors for our guest bathroom. I’ve been researching the best way to do this and I’m going to give it a go now that we have a table saw.
This feels like a manageable list, two “big” projects and a couple of smaller things to tackle in-between work and ya know, life!
