2017 Goals Summary #3: Home Projects

I set some really ambitious 2017 goals for myself. I posted regular monthly updates for my goals through May and then continued to work on the goals through the remaining seven months of 2017. I’m sharing my overall outcome with my 2017 goals before sharing my 2018 goals.

Goal #3 was to finish all major home painting projects, home framing projects, and other home organization projects. I accomplished a lot on our “forever” home in late 2015 (when we moved in) through the end of 2016 and wanted to get as much as possible wrapped up by the end of 2017. Contrary to popular belief, I do not love home decorating. I felt like I had to do a lot with this house because we intend for it to be our forever home. Although you’re never really done working on a house, I needed to feel like there’s an end point to the big projects. Hence, I set this goal.

I read this article and thought, “I could check off all these tasks tomorrow.” No more excuses. I got the entire list done and took all the photos for this post in the same day.
