Anyone out there on this rollercoaster ride for the second time around? I liveblogged the January Cure last year, and this year I'm going to do it again. Why? Well... have you seen my doormat? It seems you can't just slay the dust bunnies once and for all. Those little buggers keep coming on back.

In between then and now, I've slacked a bit on the maintenance part. Overall, things are looking up from this time last year—we had a fab Style Cure since then, I managed to tackle a few more things from my master project list, and I got rid of projects I changed my mind about. I thought it could be fun to compare them side-by-side, so here's my 2013 list:

Entry:
• Fix light
Paint mail sorter (decided against it)
• Touch up trim paint

Bathroom:
• Paint
• Fix towel bar
Refinish medicine cabinet shelves
Fix doorknob
Replace shower curtain & bath mat

Living Room:
• Paint
Reorganize/style bookshelf
Sell tea cart (keeping for now)
• Replace blinds & curtains

Hall:
• Fix smoke alarms & lights

Office/Guest Room:
Paint (sensing a theme?)
Move desk from bedroom to office
Better utilize closet space
Drop off clothes to Goodwill

Kitchen:
Hang pegboard
Fix disposal
Replace cabinet pulls

Bedroom:
Fix scarf storage
Find new home for laundry basket
Restyle bed
• Find space for reading nook

And now, here's the updated 2014 version:

• Fix light
• Repaint trim
• Clean doormat

Bathroom:
• New towel rack
• Replace wall shelf with wall cabinet
• Get new art
• Paint

Living Room:

Jewel Box (formerly known as Office/Guest Room):
