My Five-Project Rule is probably the only reason life around the Liberty House is a contained kind of madness as opposed to, well, all-out chaos. The idea is that I can’t add another project to the list until one is checked off, but sometimes I go crazy and even check a bunch of stuff off the list without starting anything new.
The last list I posted included:
1.) Tackling the walls in my Office. I’ve got a few touch ups to do, but the bulk of this work is done.
2.) Building a desk, also in the Office. 100% finished!
3.) Putting smaller casters on the workbench so I could actually see over the top of it. Also finished.
4.) Hanging curtains in the parlor. This is one of those projects that seemed really important a month ago, but as it turns out, it’s not where I want to spend my time or money right now… sometimes that’s the way it goes, so it’s being wait-listed while I work on other things.
5.) Creating this wall art for the Entry
I don’t put time-limits on these lists… the idea is the projects will always be revolving on to and off of it, but it took me about a month to check four things off of that one.
Here’s what’s on the new list…
Obviously those stairs are going to be the big thing I’m tackling over the next several weeks, but I’m going to stay true to my “Get your shit together” theme in January by continuing to come up with storage/organization solutions for the Office and the mudroom– which currently contains pink floors, green walls, all of my tools, and is an absolute disaster.
And on deck…
I’m really itching to start something big, but not until the great battle of the staircases is over and I’m a little more settled in the finished spaces in this house. What projects do you have coming up?
