Capricorns, it's a brand new year and the perfect time to get focused and map out the year ahead. Your innate reliability and consistency makes you a natural for tackling home projects and actually getting them done. Think about what will help you sail through any difficulties with the quiet grace and fortitude you're known for, and accomplish your goals for 2017.

As a Capricorn, you keep your nose to the grindstone, forgoing flash and pretense in favor of a job well done. Above, Chris and Julia built this great standing desk from IKEA kitchen cabinets, Semihandmade drawer fronts, and a calacatta marble top. Much work will happen here I believe.

Add Traditional Wall Molding

You're drawn to homes with understated and timeless design, versus trendy looks that quickly fade. Nothing says beautifully traditional like wall molding, either as wainscoting or picture frame molding. Your space will look as chic as this Parisian flat from A + B Kasha.

Organize with Pegboard

Capricorns means business, and getting stuff done means being organized. Pegboard is a no-nonsense choice for storing your stuff in every room in the house.

Dress Up Your Fireplace

Cover up an ugly fireplace facade with a more handsome and stately design. DIY Network even used an old door as the base material for this fireplace redo — perfect for practical people born under the sign of the goat.

Set Up A Home Gym

You don't wish for it, they work for it. Why sit around when you can be exercising to achieve your fitness goals for the year? Sticking to a routine is even easier with this set up from I Heart Organizing.
