Ok so most of you don’t know but my family and myself are originally from Dallas, TX but we now live in the small town of Hammond, LA— it’s nice ( nothing like what you see on TV about LA) but it’s nothing like the big city lights, traffic jams, and the excitement of meeting new people everyday. Our family moved here because my hubby is from here and decided to move back home to….. uh…. I think it was to help out with the family business but considering that he’s not working at the family business ( I am) I’m not for sure why he moved back.
When we first moved here (two years ago) my husband moved first and then we came later– when he moved, he was offered the option to move back into his childhood home– ( my husband is thirty) so you can only imagine how old the house is.Now to a man, this was a great offer but to a woman– it’s not the same feeling.
While I’m blessed that we had this opportunity to live in this huge house with tons of land for the children to explore on; I am now ready to do a major makeover to the house and bring it out of the 80’s.
So here are my 2012 home goals:
Goal: Lighten up wall color and bring in more warm tones
Goal: Bring in striped walls, paint cabinets and add new light fixtures
Goal: add new lighting and start on family pictures wall
Goals: Lighten up– add strips, new bedding, and sitting area
Goal: Using everything below! LOVE
So there you have it— I can’t wait to get started!
Are you doing anything new and fun to your house this year?
