We have made the most progress in the office - with the cord storage project and filing update plus the items below, it's looking very nice in there! There is plenty of desk space to work and even more floor space for the kitty to play :)
What is pretty are the new curtains!
Gratuitous work award shot :)
We installed the awesome record switch plate I bought at the Brooklyn Flea during my NYC trip in May!
Last night I worked on my craft room and the hall bath. I purged a ton of fabric scraps that I'll never use, finished organizing my closet, and mended some of Dave's shirts that have been sitting in a pile for a while.
- Craft room status:
purge fabric and organize all current projects in 1 place for easy access move empty fabric bins to garage
How awesome does the closet look now? I think those Ikea Kassett bins are my new favorite organizational tool...it's just a shame there are only so many closets in the house! Now all my craft supplies (fabric, mementos, paper scraps, etc.) are boxed individually, I have a separate box for upcoming projects like Bonnie's Mason jar quilt, a baby quilt for whoever has the first baby boy, felt for a JMU-themed Dr. Suess hat for Dave, etc., and I have a huge bin for empty scrapbooks, pages and protectors! Phew, so much better than this:
The hall bath upstairs only had 2 small tasks, yet somehow I managed only to finish one:
- Hall bath status:
switch shower curtain (already purchased) and Craigslist/store existing one
- replace light switch plate
Do you see the problem here? Yep, we didn't think while purchasing. FAIL. LOLArt by Locals in Manteo, NC, where we bought it...we'll see :)
Overall, good progress! And I even completed some extra projects along the way, like the 2 DIY throw pillows I whipped up last night using some to-be-organized items in the craft room! Now off to the master bedroom and bath...
