2020 Project Planning

I'm amused when I look back at old To-Do lists. Apparently, the last one I posted was in 2017. We did nothing on it during 2018. Here was my list:

To Do List:
  1. Finish sewing room curtains
  2. Finish master bedroom closet cubes
  3. Repair the garden shed broken windows
  4. Paint the garden shed exterior
  5. Finish the interior of the shed with a chicken apartment (no longer needed)
Wouldn't it Be Nice List (the list I admit I probably won't get to, but I want to keep track of them):
  1. Stencil the living room frieze
  2. Stencil the dining room frieze
  3. Stencil the basement bathroom
  4. Make the leaded glass for the front door
  5. Install the hybrid charging station
The garden shed painting didn't happen until late last summer.

The sewing room curtains finally got finished in February 2020.

I doubt we'll ever get the master bedroom closet cubes built, but I'll keep it on the list. Here is my list for 2020 with hopes we'll have better motivation than earlier years (in no particular order).

To-Do List:
  1. Recover the living room furniture
  2. Stencil the living room frieze
  3. Weed and maintain the hidden garden
  4. Fix the water flow in the front yard rain garden (currently slopes the wrong way).
  5. Finish the back patio furniture set
  6. Build shelves for garage
  7. Sift and organize garage
  8. Repair broken leaded glass panel in the parlor
Wouldn't it Be Nice List:
  1. Finish master bedroom closet cubes
  2. Make the leaded glass for the front door
  3. Stencil the dining room frieze


  1. I do so love a good list - nothing more satisfying than ticking off that latest task!

  2. Maybe you could prioritize, so it would be easier to knock them off the list. Sometimes it's good to start with the easiest project, and work from there.
