Is everyone super busy with their purging?
Oh boy… things have been moving full steam ahead here.
But… ever notice how one thing leads to another?
I thought I was so smart establishing starting and finishing ONE. ROOM. FIRST. in my initial Heap of Change post HERE.
(insert hysterical laughter here)
Well, it did not work out that way by a LONG SHOT.
So if you’ve been feeling ‘less than’ during your own purging quest, I failed in flying colours myself.
It’s just going to take much longer than anticipated to do it right.
But first off, I couldn’t begin to clean this room without organizing my paint supplies in my photo studio.
Thing is, they had no where to go. Yet. Which forced me to work on that space too.
But.. one thing at a time… deep breath…
“Just organize the stuff, so it can be carried out when you’re ready!”
Yes! I can do that. Think small.
Can you hear the paint angels sing?
The best thing I ever did was land this massive roll of paper from a thrift store long ago. I ripped off a new sheet, covered a fold out plastic table, and organized the paint inside anything I could find.
Mason jars, sewing machine drawers, the market tray, a thrift store found old toolbox I never did repaint yet… it’s all good!
Side note of interest/ Cats love milk paint because of the casein it contains, so I have to lock it away in the workshop until I come up with a better plan.
Pit stops. That’s all they are. But that’s ok! This is huge.
This toolbox from friend Kelly was the perfect size for the craft paints.
I can actually paint now if desired!
But I don’t have time yet… well, not that kind of paint.
I’m busy painting ‘the new paint station’ walls. Heh x 200000!
Yep. WAY carried away. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
I was going to follow my rules. I really was! But I couldn’t fathom moving this stuff back in a place I don’t like to spend time in. It’s dark and dreary. So I just went for it. You’ll see what I mean soon.
Come back Thursday to see how far I actually got!
And there’s one more surprise on Thursday… junkers, you’re in for a treat. 🙂 See ya then!
