Who wouldn’t love to give their home a complete makeover? How many of us are just dying to get everything organized and beautiful?!?! Many of us would love to give our home a fresh start this year, but we just don’t know where to start. This year at the Art of Domesticity I am so thrilled to guide you through a twelve-month journey to making over your home.
I am going to make it very simple and break down each aspect of your home makeover into monthly tasks according to seasonal needs. Better yet, I am digging deep to find out when is the best time to purchase home goods as far as furniture, appliances, bedding and all other home improvement items.
Many of us shrink back from this seemingly insurmountable task because it is just too overwhelming, but not anymore. I am making it very simple!
January is a month that begs a fresh start…a cleaning out…renewal. So let’s get started with a few really simple tasks you can tackle over the next few weeks so you can be on your way to a complete home makeover!
1. Edit your home – Make a plan
First things first, make a plan. Walk around your home, and jot down all the goals you want to achieve for the year in no particular order. Then give your home a clean sweep. Edit down to the bare minimum, and donate everything you don’t really use to charity and store or relocate the items you really aren’t using.
2. Purge -give your home a clean sweep
Edit down to the bare minimum, and donate everything you don’t really use to charity and store or relocate the items you really aren’t using. Setting up a home can really be daunting for just about anyone. But You can do this….
