2022 12 months In Evaluate – Addicted 2 Adorning®

Hey! Anybody on the market? *faucet, faucet* Is that this factor on? 😀

Matt and I had such an exquisite, enjoyable time over this final week, and after our horrible, horrible, no good, very unhealthy last two weeks of 2022 (if you missed that story, you can read about it here), we desperately wanted final week to ourselves. I did completely no work on the home throughout this final week. I watched extra motion pictures than I can rely, took a nap nearly each single afternoon, and ate far more yummy meals than I ought to have.

So after testing fully for a complete week, I’m lastly feeling rested, prepared and excited to get this new yr underway. I’m able to get again to the house fitness center and get that room completed, and transfer on to ending my studio. I’m able to get some smaller tasks completed which have been hanging over my head for some time now. I’m prepared to start out taking the wanted steps in direction of getting our addition began. It ought to be a enjoyable yr!

However earlier than that, let’s check out what my targets had been for 2022, and see how I did on these. Spoiler alert: I didn’t make excellent progress on my targets for 2022. 😀

Once I was studying again over my 2022 Master List of Home Goals, I believed to myself, “I may actually simply copy and paste this put up and use it for my 2023 Grasp Record of House Objectives.” It’s true. On my checklist of house targets for 2022 had been to (1) end the house fitness center, (2) end the grasp lavatory, and (3) end my studio. I additionally deliberate to do some outside tasks, like some upkeep on our entrance porch space and at last getting that fully completed.

In the long run, the one completed room I crossed off of the checklist by the top of 2022 was the grasp lavatory. However I’m not going to beat myself up about it. I did make progress throughout 2022, and that’s what issues. And never solely did I make progress, however I completed one of many largest room remodels I’ve taken on so far.

Originally of 2022, the grasp lavatory regarded like this…

I had quite a lot of issues began in that loo, however actually nothing was completed. Not a single undertaking in that room was completed originally of 2022.

And as of December, the lavatory is totally completed and appears like this…

If you missed that final before and after post, you can see the whole thing here.

Whereas the grasp lavatory was the one room/space I completed in 2022, it was an enormous undertaking, and I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I’m additionally very happy with the truth that I used that room to stretch my DIY skills and study new issues.

One of many largest methods I challenged myself on that loo was by constructing the table-style vanities and the center storage cupboard.

I’ve constructed tables and storage cupboards earlier than, however I’ve at all times constructed them to be painted. That signifies that I can depend on a great deal of wooden filler and caulk to make up for my lack of excellent constructing expertise earlier than portray them.

However 2022 was the primary time in all of my years of DIYing that I eliminated that security internet, and constructed the gadgets for one of many two predominant function partitions within the largest and (in all probability) costliest room in our home out of walnut. I used walnut lumber, turned walnut legs, and walnut veneer to create these items.

I used to be so intimidated by that undertaking, however wanting again on it, I’m so glad that I pushed myself to flex these new DIY muscle mass. I now really feel completely snug working with costly lumber, working with prime quality wooden veneer, and dealing with out the security nets of wooden filler and caulk. (To be clear, I did use some wooden filler, however not almost so liberally as I typically would on a bit that’s to be painted. However caulk was out of the query.)

For those who missed these tasks, yow will discover them right here:

I had hoped to get much more achieved on my C.O.P. (cleansing, organizing, purging) journey via our home in 2022. However whereas I didn’t get all the pieces purged and arranged that I had hoped, I did end up these final remaining organizational tasks within the kitchen.

I’m blissful to say that the organizing options that I put into place for our fridge have caught. At this time, our fridge may use a bit cleansing and tidying up, however for essentially the most half, it has stayed fairly organized. I haven’t gone again to my earlier open-and-shove methodology that resulted in our fridge wanting like the photographs on the left beneath…

And I additionally organized my cupboard the place I retailer my 4 skillets by constructing this very easy DIY vertical skillet organizer.

That has made it a lot simpler to succeed in into that cupboard and seize precisely what I would like moderately than having to tug out a complete stack of skillets to get the one I need.

And at last, I obtained the entire again wall of cupboards cleaned out and arranged.

A few of these cupboards had lacking cabinets as a result of I had taken them out the final time I painted the cupboards (again in 2017), and I believe a few of the cabinets accidently had been positioned on my scrap pile that obtained loaded up and hauled off with the development particles. So I lastly lower new cabinets, edge banded them with wooden veneer edge banding, and got all of the cabinets on this wall organized and useful.

I’m the kind of one that isn’t naturally organized and tidy, however as soon as methods are put into place, I’m fairly good at sticking with them. So having my complete kitchen purged and arranged now makes it a lot extra environment friendly and simpler to make use of. I hope to proceed placing these methods into place in 2023 and past till each space of our home has been purged and arranged.

Whereas 2022 appeared a bit gradual within the house tasks class, the biggest and most life-changing thing happened for us in 2022. We purchased a wheelchair van.

And after 13 years of being homebound and by no means leaving the home, Matt lastly determined that he needed to enterprise out and be part of the surface world once more. For the primary time in 13 years, he ate at a restaurant, went to a transfer theater and watched a film, went to a park, went to church, and did a number of different issues that he hadn’t completed on nicely over a decade of being homebound.

I nonetheless get a bit choked up once I watch the movies I took of our first outing. Matt and I had been each emotional about it, and he and I each cried as we went via the road to order our meals at Rosa’s. I’m positive the individuals there have been questioning what the heck was happening. 😀 You can read all about our first week with the wheelchair van here.

The ultimate massive factor that occurred in 2022 was that Matt purchased me an appointment with a panorama designer for my birthday. After assembly with him, strolling our property, and sharing my imaginative and prescient and desires, the designer got here up with a wonderful plan and drawing for me. This factor appears to be like like a murals that ought to be framed and held on the wall.

You can see all of the details of the landscape design here. I didn’t really make any progress on implementing any of the concepts in 2022, however at the least we now have a plan and know what we’re working in direction of now.

In order that just about sums up 2022. It was a gradual yr general, and I don’t really feel like I ended the yr with a complete lot of progress to point out. However at the least I obtained the grasp lavatory completed, and that was an enormous accomplishment.

I do hope that 2023 has a complete lot extra selection, although. I would like selection to maintain myself and motivated.
