Getting it all done!

I love getting things checked off my list!  Now that the Polka Dot Flea and the Haven Conference are behind me, I have turned my attention to some home projects.

First up....Cleaning the garage.  After getting the whole garage clean I spent a day going through every bag and box of screws I own and organizing them all in this holder.   I've had the holder about 5 years and never taken it out of the box, I think it was from Costco. It will make finding the hardware I need for a project soooo much easier......This was OCD at it's finest!

I also uncovered and set aside the projects I want to work on 

It looks like a pretty motley crew now, but I have some big plans for all of these treasures

Then I turned my attention to my fabric closet....This is what it looked like 4 years ago when I had it all in order.....

.....This is what it had become!

I also cleaned my linen closet....How many sheets and towels does one person need?   Between the garage, fabric, and linen closet, I've made 3 trips to the Goodwill!

Next on my list.....This is a big one!  I want to repaint the living room and my newly remodeled kitchen

I think I am going to use a blue grey paint color.... 

......And change the living room to a style similar to my Hollywood Regency bedroom I recently completed

This means getting rid of some of the fru fru, pink, and flowers.....Yikkes...I never thought I would do that, but I have had the same style for 11 years and it's time for a little change.  I would never get rid of my white slip covers (They are so easy to clean) or the vintage look....I'm just changing it up a bit. 

So...Just incase you thought I was kicking back for the summer.....Nope....I'm multitasking a ton of fun projects...I'll keep you posted!!!

What are you working on?

Happy Creating
