2021 Home Goals

Wednesday, January 27, 2021

We accomplished a lot in our home in 2020! It's amazing how much you can get done when you are staying safe at home. I couldn't let January pass by without reflecting on last year.

Screen Porch


  • Added pony walls and a shiplap faux fireplace with TV to the screen porch
  • Painted the entire porch
  • Poured a concrete patio for the grill and fire pit
  • Added new shrubs and landscape rock to the back yard

Master Bedroom



  • Completed our Coastal Grandmillennial Master Bedroom makeover complete with wallpaper and board and batten. This was a big DIY project that we completed in six weeks as part of the One Room Challenge.

Kitchen



  • Replaced all the hardware on the kitchen cabinets

Foyer



  • Installed closets in the front foyer. Can you believe that this house didn't have a coat closet? I'm sure you are thinking, "Well, you have a mudroom." Our mudroom is tiny! This is just a sneak peek of the foyer as it is still a work in progress. The dog den doors still need to be built and a new light will be installed.

Bonus Room

  • Added a wall and pocket door to the loft to turn it into a bonus room. The main point of this was to help reduce the noise. Boys are LOUD when they play video games. This room still needs window treatments and more zhuzhing, but the boys love this space and there is oftentimes 6-8 boys hanging out in here.


Our Home Goals for 2021

  • Convert the dining room into a home office.
  • Convert the office into a guest bedroom.
  • Replace the light fixture in the foyer and finish the dog den built-in. 
  • Add board and batten in the foyer and possibly wallpaper.
  • Design and install a hood for the kitchen.
  • Add board and batten plus wallpaper in the downstairs bathroom, new vanity, light fixture, and hardware. 

Personal Happenings in 2020 - Robin Warzywak Interior Designs


This one is at the top of my list. I re-opened my services for interior decorating in Wake Forest, North Carolina. If you are looking for an interior design refresh in Wake Forest, Raleigh, or anywhere in the Triangle, please reach out to me. I also offer e-Design services for those of you that are not local. 




Another major happening of 2020, that was not so positive, was saying goodbye to our dearest Tucker. He lived to be 15 and a half years old and had a great life. We still miss him dearly. 

Thank you for following along on my journey!  I'd love to help you put the finishing touches on your home. 

What space in your home irks you the most?
