2010 Projects

Overall, I was not a fan of 2010, and am very much so looking forward to a new year. But, factoring out any personal issues – 2010 was a fabulous year for my house.

I had an unrealistic list of desired goals to accomplish this year, and while I didn't accomplish all of them – I did get an insane amount done.

So here's my goals for 2010 and how I measured up...

All the doors are done. As for the trim, the kitchen, master and third bedroom are left.

  1. What a great post, Ashley. I love seeing all you DID accomplish. I can't believe how gorgeous those floors are under the carpet. Good for you. I'm hosting a link party for 2011 on my blog and I'd love to have you join in. I also offer some tips for accomplishing those goals too!
