New House To Do List

Here is a basic to-do list of the house.  There is no priority, there is no distinction between tiny items or big items and it definitely isn't thorough.  Man, sounds like I need to take more time to make this bigger.  Uh-oh.  (Crossed out means I've already done it.)

Scandinavian Hutch?
Pool Table 

Living Room:
Remove wallpaper
Paint walls
Do something with curtains(dye them?)
Add crown molding (probably more than a year away from this step)
Widen doorways (probably more than 3 years away)

Dining Room:
Paint walls
Paint trim
Move dining room to living room and make current dining room office/playroom

Family Room:
Sell pool table
Build toy chest/furniture (picked up Expedit at IKEA...not in love)

Add built in bookcases (probably more than 3 years away)
Paint paneling (could be my first job to tackle)
Add crown molding (more than a year away)
Widen doorways (probably more than 3 years away)

Paint cabinets (maybe?)
Replace hardware
Put in IKEA apron sink
Replace faucet
Paint floors (probably replace but it would be fun to try paint)
Remove desk and cabinets on short wall
Replace appliances (already replaced dishwasher)
Add garbage disposal
Take down wallpaper
Paint walls

Master bedroom:
Add curtain between bedroom & sink area (as a short term solution)
Close in garage door

Paint closet doors, back of door, and trim
Install pallet bookshelf that is already built
Replace lighting (remove ceiling fan)

Utility Room:
Install upper closet bar for drying clothes
Build laundry basket holders for 4 baskets (Ana White plans)
Install iron & ironing board holder (already bought, just have to install)

Move garage door opener switch
Make mudroom racks out of existing storage shelves for removing shoes

Florida Room:
Buy patio furniture

If I try to make a list in priority order of what I think I'll tackle first...maybe I'll give myself deadlines??
