Seriously, a flea probably has a longer attention span than I do these days. I’ve been all over the place with my projects lately. Seems I just don’t know what I want to accomplish first! I mean, I really want to keep moving on my laundry room makeover, but yet all the Christmassy stuff is getting in my way.
So I do a little Christmas decorating, then I work on some of the laundry room stuff, then I start cleaning out the rest of the basement, then off to Christmas shop.
My tree sat in the middle of the living room for 4 days.
I finally got it all fluffed and situated.
Then it sat for a few more days, waiting for lights. I finally got them on last night.
Wonder how long it will sit waiting for ornaments? Will this be another of those years I throw the ornaments up on Christmas Eve? ( oh yes, I have done that before)
I just don’t seem to know where to start or stop.
So I have nothing actually done, just a lot of stuff in progress.
I sit down to write a blog post, and I can’t finish! Why? Because I have nothing finished to write about! You should see my drafts folder, it’s full of incomplete posts. Kind of like my house.
How about you? Are you focused?
What’s your secret?
I’m just going to show you some of the stuff I worked on this week. Not finished, of course.
Repainted the laundry room wall white behind the washer/dryer
Turned this shelf unit around so the back is now facing the laundry room (After everything on it was transferred to the new storage room.)
Then I primed and painted the back of the shelf units (there are 2 now side by side facing the workbench area).
Made some shelves from old boards, trim, and side rails from beds I had in my stash.
Then added some shelf brackets to hold some accessories such as my collection of antique and toy irons. (not done yet, still trying to figure out what I want on them, and the bottom platform isn’t done either)
This is a before shot of this same area back in October before I started this project;
Cut some boughs from the huge evergreens in the yard.
Dug out some metal rings salvaged from an old wine barrel.
And a spool of fishing line.
Wrapped the boughs around the ring with the fishing line.
Made 3 of these wreaths that way. They still need bows.
I have 2 more big rings, but they were outside when the snowstorm hit last week. Now I can’t find them!
Threw one up on the skis leaning against the tree by the driveway.
Added a garage sale metal bow to the white sled…
Got some light colored burlap and started the curtains for the laundry room.
Hung the new curtains….
Decided to paint these huge popcorn tins from many Christmas’ ago.
With this hammered silver paint from my paint stash.
So far so good.
Then I decided to paint a chalkboard square on each for labeling. Only I couldn’t find my painter’s tape.
I improvised with duct tape.
Word to the wise----DON’T!
That was a really dumb move!
See? Like a flea, hopping every which way.
Only 9 more days ‘til Christmas, must focus!
But on what?????
