My not so extreme home makeover

after visiting restyled home's post to the extreme home makeover (which was a great post by the way i totally agree) i decided that its about time for my very own not so extreme home makeover. i guess i am getting spring/nesting fever

my plan is to go through each room in my house clear the clutter, and redecorate using things i have or things found at the thrift store with a few new things thrown into the mix, only if they are on sale or clearance of course. i live in a cute 1920's cottage style house with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. as our family grows i know that we will someday move out so on that note i don't want to do anything too extreme, but also would like to make a few changes so that i can enjoy it as well. i also love the idea of being creative and working with what we have, for example in our bathroom we have pink and teal tiles partway up the wall, although i wish for white subway tiles or beaded board i like the idea of being creative and trying to work with it.
we've been in our house for almost 3 years now and still no progress has been made so i am hoping by posting this, it will really get me motivated. i plan to tackle this slowly and hoping to get some help from all you wonderful bloggers. i am going to try and take a room one month at a time. so i am hoping the plan will go as follows: i will post a before picture of the room i am redoing, maybe with some inspiration photos as well. hopefully you will help me and give me some advice and (cross your fingers) i will post an after picture after the month is over. so please help me by commenting on some ideas that you think might work.

my overall feel and design for the house that i am going for is cottage/ farmhouse style.

Here are a few inspiration photos that i have on my computer (note: i have a MILLION others but here are just a few to give you a feeling of what i want the style of my home to be):
