Vision Board - Room Remodel

No picture today, just a teaser about what I've been up to. I love to set goals at this time of year rather than the first of the year.  I've been thinking about what I would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. There are so many areas I'd like to make changes in! The first would have to be a little home remodeling. 
The last of our 4 kids moved out in June and Wes and I need to go in and clean, paint and redecorate 2 bedrooms and the hall bathroom. We've already decided that the bathroom will be the first room we tackle. It's small and SHOULD be quick to do. Tonight we are going to make the list of things to replace and fix up and get going on it. The larger of the two bedrooms will have a Queen bed, dresser, TV area, a guest room kind of feeling to it. The smaller bedroom is going to have either twin or full side bed. It will be for the grandkids that come over to spend the night. It will probably have a place for toys and games but "hidden" so it could be a grownups room too. 
Along decorating lines... we also need to work on our kitchen. It's cute but it need some work. We took out the main room light nearly 2 weeks ago and I'm still cooking by temporary light! Our sink is porcelain {outdated}, faucet set looks like it belongs in a farm and is old {outdated} and the floor is an old, dull linoleum that really needs replacing. To make the cabinets fit in a room that must have been even smaller, they shaved off about 4 inches of what a regular cupboard would be. They are white, plain and have extremely plain drawer and cabinet pulls {outdated}. The counters are tiled with a browny, gray tile that is beginning to lose the grout in places. Overall, the kitchen is dark, small and dated and could really benefit from a total makeover! Anybody want a challenge?? It would be great for a college student's hands on project.     H E L P!!!
