New Project List

So, it's that time again. Time for me to come up with a list of projects that I would like to complete. I have some really good ones, too! And I might even be able to add pictures in the near future. Here's what I have in mind so far:
  • My dining area. We're renting, so I can't do a WHOLE lot, but I really want to get some stuff on the walls and possibly some sheer curtains. I have decided that the whole "table refinishing" job is too major, so I'm revisiting the idea of making a table cloth or table runner, and a pretty centerpiece.
  • My entry-way. I need a pretty rug and a basket for shoes. That might keep the clutter somewhat under control.
  • Nursing covers. My friend has asked me to make some for her sisters-in-law that are having babies soon. I really like making them because they're simple and I have my own little way of making them different from any others you might see out there.
  • My bedroom. I'd like to get some curtains and some new side tables. My bed is just too tall for the tables I have now.
So, in general, I just need to do a lot of things to make my place more "homey." I'm tired of it feeling drab and like things are the way they are "by accident." I want it to look like I try! I figure I spend just about all day, every day in this place, and I want to like being here. :-)

Good idea... you have a lot of little tasks there, but all sound do-able.
My old apartment was totally thrown together, while the decor in my current one is the product of a lot of time/effort (mostly on my sister's part:)) and i LOVE the homey feeling. it is not just some apt I rent, it is my home.
Can't wait to see pics!

Good luck with the projects! There is so much I would like to do all of the time, but time and funds are short.
