2013 New DIYear Resolutions

So we’re halfway through February and most of us have probably forgotten about our resolutions already, but I’m just getting around to sharing mine now.  But since I shared my resolutions for 2010, 2011, and 2012, I couldn’t break tradition this year.  Better late than never, right? 

As with past years, I call my house to-dos for the year “New DIYear Resolutions” since they are all hands-on DIY projects I want to accomplish during the year.  I failed big time with two of my resolutions last year, not even getting started on them, so they are back on the docket for this year.  So here’s what I’m hoping to tackle in 2013:

Refinish This Chest: Okay, this one is embarrassing.  I bought this soon-to-be-awesome chest at a garage sale back in 2010 and it still hasn’t been refinished.  I’m giving myself an ultimatum to finish it this spring, no excuses!

Create a Proper Window Seat: This is another leftover from last year’s list (boooo).  Our living room has a built-in window seat area, but needs a nice cushion and new pillows.  Good news is that I already have the fabric to tackle this project!

Complete Baby’s Nursery: This one I know will get done!  The nursery must be finished for our little bundle of joy.  You can read all about our nursery mood board and plan here.

Have a Baby!: Since we’re having a baby this year, that’s at the ultimate top of my to-do list!  Given that this a pretty darn big project, I’m keeping the rest of this New DIYear Resolutions list pretty short so I can focus on the whole having and caring for a tiny human being thing.  It’s kinda a big deal!

How are your resolutions going for this year?  Do you have a list of DIY projects to tackle?
