Plans for 2012

There are several projects I want to start and finish this year.

Remember the office we started?  Yeah, me too.  I'm typing from it now.  I moved my focus back downstairs.  I figured no one was coming over and asking to hang out there. 

I want to paint the kitchen cabinets using the cabinet transformation kit we used in the master bathroom.  I want the darker cabinets but so afraid it won't turn out like I want it to.  I have big dreams for that kitchen.

I want to finish accessorizing the formal dining room.  The stencil wall really got me excited and wanting to get this room done.  I know I just painted that chandelier but I want a more modern light fixture there.

The formal living room is bare.  Enough said.

I would love to make our master bedroom a sanctuary for us.  Right now its builder beige walls are cold and not inviting.  I'm thinking a warm paint color and lots of neutrals and blues.

Also the guest bedroom is screaming for some attention.  Right now it's the "I don't know where it goes so put it in there" room.  You're looking at the pushed to the side version.  If you could only see what was behind that door.

There you have it, my to do list.  I need to get cracking.
You have any big plans for 2012?
