Sometimes weekend home projects involve pretty paint and stunning before and after pictures.
Sometimes they’re just not pretty at all… but the end result feels oh, so, good.
This was my weekend project:
I needed a good dose of organization…
Somehow my yearly “rearrange the house” escapades usually happen in January. I think that Christmas and all the accompanying hoop-la and extra presents suddenly become The Tipping Point:
TOO MUCH STUFF suddenly overshadows the necessary and comfortable. Claustrophobia starts to set in.
I’ve contemplated long and hard over how to make our home function better for us. Goal #1 was to make this closet work better.
I got slightly distracted with a fleeting, “Wouldn’t this be pretty painted a fun, happy color?” thought.
But, I forced it aside. When I get organization on my mind, I must press on!
I’m absolutely giddy with the thought that ALL of our books can now be in one place (The Attic Music Room Library). That freed up the bookcase to be moved into the closet to provide much needed shelving.
After all was said and done, is it drop dead gorgeous?
But, it sure is nice to finally know where all the hand towels were hiding…
And, hallelujah, the table is still there, too!
