My new self-imposed rule is to not start a new #makeovermonday project until I finish all those unfinished projects lingering throughout our house.
Case in point – this high chair I painted (dare I say) almost 2 years ago.
I didn’t have time that night to finish painting the back before sending the blog out. Ehh, no big deal. I could finish it later…
Now almost 2 years later – here it sits.
I wish I were joking!!
Time to paint the chair, Starr.
The paint is a Valspar color sample I picked up at Target (remember, almost 2 years ago – who knows if they still have it in stock!!). The shade is Valspar Encounter #539017. If you can get your hands on one of these little sample bottles, they cover furniture SOOOO GOOD!!
For kicks and giggles I decided to set the timer to see how long it would take me to finish the chair.
I sure am glad I waited 2 years to paint this chair that took me all of 42 minutes!!!!
Since it was only 4pm and I was feeling all motivated with my finished chair, why not finish another project??
Last week I finished Brian’s nightstand that only had 1 pitiful coat of paint for over a year. Anyone see a pattern here with my painting??
Then, I took a photo of what my side of the bed looks like.
Yikes!! I had a friend ask me, “What is all that stuff???”
I don’t even know.
Why don’t we just call it my “collection of things.”
Time to tackle the collection and clean out, Starr.
For 100% transparency – here is the zoomed out view of my side of the bed as of 4pm this afternoon. It’s super tidy and luxurious, just as you’d expect.
First, I cleaned off the desk and sorted “my collection” on our bed.
You need it, I GOT IT!!!
Then, I had to come to the realization that I’d been using this little corner as a dumping ground for all kinds of stuff. It had gotten REAL bad, y’all.
Yep, all that hidden in the corner. My desk was just so…usable.
Time to reclaim the corner.
I brought back the nightstand beside the bed and my lovely “animal” chair so many of you commented on, lol.
This project took WAYY longer than anticipated. I decided to sort items and get rid of crap, so I’m not actually finished yet.
And then there’s the laundry that needs to be put away.
Ahhhhh, any volunteers???
Meanwhile – this one empty wall proves that I’m in-fact becoming a true minimalist.
Oh wait, never mind. This is what it looks like under my side of the bed.
