Home Goals Review....Post of Shame

Clearly, last January when I posted my 2012 Home Goals.....I was feeling quite optimistic. Needless to say, I over promised and under delivered. 

Let's review, and then I will set myself up again!

1). Finish my dining room....I did that one.

You can see more of it here.

2). The All White Foyer.....BIG FAIL. I still haven't done that one. You must be sick of  hearing about it. I have devoted an entire Pinterest board to it. Pick an image...any image

White walls, colorful rug, dark banister....I want one. 

3). Adding a gallery wall to my upstairs hallway.....BIG FAIL. Didn't happen, enough said. Here was the inspiration for that one.


4) Finish my master bedroom...I did that one.


You can see more of it here.

Finally #5). A Potager Garden.....BIG FAIL. I also have an entire Pinterest board for that one, too. Again, pick an image....any image. Pea gravel paths, raised beds and a white fence.


This is the current state of my vegetable garden.


Now doesn't this make you feel better about your own goals?

Tomorrow, I will state my new 2013 Home Goals. Are you setting goals for 2013?

Pat yourself on the back for pulling off a couple of AMAZING projects, and also for helping many of us get off our duffs and get things done around our own places. That is something worth tooting your horn over!

Linda, I loved your bedroom redo. It may not have been a "cross off" on your list but you pulled off some amazing DIYs that deserve a look.

Hehe, you're too hard on yourself mama. Major kudos for getting SOMETHING done on said list. My trick? To stop having said lists! Drove me insane, and I couldn't handle the annoying voices screaming epic fail in my head! p.s. Happy Boxing Day!

Talk about shame, You are so ahead of me. Redo living room. Nope. Redo dining room, nope. Finish mbr. Nope. Decorate guest room. Nada. Convince husband to move....one step closer....

I think you need a more realistic list! With having two children and the Lowes projects, I don't know how you could have done all of that! You do plenty. Give yourself a break!

Hey, I am just impressed you're willing to publicly share your goals!! There's always this year to finish them up...or start...or not do them again...

Lisa Mende said...

Wow, look what you did get done Linda! You did way more than most! Happy Holiday!

Janet @ House Four said...

Linda you accomplished a LOT this year. i am glad, however, that i won't be alone in posting a lot of my 2012 goals again in 2013 ;)

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Linda, I think you accomplished a TON! But I am with you - over promised, undelivered! Oh well, there is always next year for the projects we didn't get to yet!! Thanks for sharing all your inspirations and ideas!

I think you have a LOT of company if that makes you feel better! Look at it as more blogging material for 2013 ~ that's what I'm doing! And, your garden is so close, looks like a fun one to cross off!

Kristen said...

So does this mean last years goals will carry into 2013? Because I really would love to see all of these! Now you got me thinking, what are my home goals going to be?!

Decora Adora said...

Linda you accomplished a LOT this year. a,nd loved your bedroom redo

jeanine said...

You got quite a few things done! I'm afraid my list from last year is still in progress as well but since I have 10 days off of work I have been working as hard as I can on my unfinished projects list. :)

Kim @ See Kim Decorate said...

Hi Linda. Your post made me laugh because I did the same thing. Of the five Q4 goals I set, I accomplished exactly one. I may have grossly overestimated how much I can get done in three months.

BTW, I just recently discovered your blog, but now I look forward to seeing where your home decorating goes in 2013.

Forgot to mention --- love your MB and Dining rooms, Fab job. Especially love the blue lanterns in your DR and pink mirrors in your br -- serious show stoppers! xo Amal

Lisa @ Trapped In North Jersey said...

the stuff that you did get done turned out fabulous :-)

barbara@hodge:podge said...

Sounds like me! I have all these ideas and plans and am lucky if I can accomplish one! I think your bedroom turned out fabulous too....

Nancy said...

Yes, but look what you DID accomplish, and added Lowe's to your plate and look how your blog has grown! You've had an amazing year and I'm looking forward to sharing this next one with you!
