At the top of my list for 2014 is:
- Paint kitchen cabinets. Right now, my cabinets are painted an off white color--SW Divine White. After 8 years, my cabinets are showing a little wear. I have a few ideas in mind. I had a company (Angelfish) come out about a year ago to give me some ideas. Angelfish can actually make my cabinets look like stained wood. But, I don't know if I want that look. My backsplash is brown and my granite has a lot of brown flecks in it, so I think I may want to introduce a color onto my cabinets. What color, I don't know, but I have been kicking around the idea of something in the green family.

- Re-decorate my powder bath. In 2005, I rag painted the walls in my powder bath. Faux finishing was all the rave and I happily jumped on the bandwagon. I wanted my powder bath to be different than the other rooms in my house. It's definitely time for a new look. I have an idea in my head that I need to execute. I want to paint the bathroom in an egg plant color (flat finish) and use the same color in a satin finish for a tone-on-tone effect. I am thinking about either a chevron pattern or a harlequin pattern.
- Restyle master bedroom. Sadly, the walls in my master bedroom are still painted SW Latte. I've been wanting to paint the walls a deep, dark chocolate hue. I want my bedroom to feel like a cocoon. Dark chocolate walls can be a neutral. You can pair a lot of colors with dark chocolate walls. It's also time for new bed linens. Since I just repainted my master bath, I think new bed linens are needed.
- Restyle my dining room. I am going to re-arrange a few things in my dining room. My thoughts are to move the big artwork from the hallway wall to the dining room wall. Move the server to the hallway wall. I can't decide if I want artwork displayed over the server or keep the mirror and add artwork on either side of it. The reason I want to move the artwork to the dining room is to brighten up the space. Yes, the walls are dark and I plan to keep the color, but by placing the painting in the dining room, I think it will be more of a focal point there and also brighten up the space.

So, this takes care of the first quarter of 2014!!! Hopefully I can get some or all of these things done in 2014.
