Hughes Home - Interior Edition

Hello lovelies.

I know that I have been somewhat absent lately, but life is busy and seems to be flying by.  My job apparently wants me to actually work while they are paying me so blogging has taken a backseat during this time.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I told you all about the things we want to do to our backyard?  Well I thought that it would be fun to make a list of the interior projects we would also like to accomplish.  Some of these we have already completed - I will act as if I wrote this a while ago - and some are longer-term goals for around the house.

Shall we begin?


  • Paint Nursery  Completed by my wonderful Father-In-Law before we moved in
  • Paint hallway  Completed by my wonderful Father-In-Law last week while we were at work
  • Buy a new couch  Completed!  We bought a new couch the day we moved in.  A little crazy?  Yes, but we love it and couldn't be happier
  • Replace kitchen counter tops - This is a long time goal.  This will be completed within the next 5 years.
  • Buy knobs/pulls for all kitchen cabinets/drawers - Needs to happen sooner than later.  I cannot stand cabinets without pulls/knobs
  • Buy a new TV for our bedroom  Completed.  We went to the BX and bought one last week and had Comcast already come out and set us up.  Now to just get our old tube TV off our floor and into the garage for the hubs
  • Organize the garage
  • New kitchen sink - Another long time goal.  Will most likely happen with the counter tops.
  • Clean hard water spots off of master shower doors - the previous owners never cleaned them and it is obviously 10 years of built up hard water stains on the doors.  It drives me crazy, but it will be handled.
  • Decorate master bathroom
  • Decorate guest bathroom
  • Organize the office-mancave-craft room
  • Hang all of our pictures around the house
  • Get canvases made - or make them myself - for the walls
  • Buy a screen door for back slider - Will be happening very soon!  I need a back screen door.
  • Buy a screen door for front door - I don't understand how houses don't come with screen doors?  I need to get a breeze going through my house without letting every bug in with it.
  • Replace the gold doors on the fireplace - they are outdated and I would love newer modern doors one day

We have quite the list - which I love - and can't wait to tackle.  Nothing needs to be done right now in order for us to live, but it is a nice starting point of what we want done inside.

Do you have any tips for new homeowners and completing tasks around the house?
