Spoiler Alert.......Project Update to Craft Room and Office

February 25, 2014

I am not sure how two major projects here and here intersected in my life....but they did. I was doing so good for about 9 days and 13 hours into the new year, confident that I would only work on one project at a time. Confident that I would not start something new, until I finished something old. 

I am beginning to think that I belong in a circus...... as a clown....with pink hair and red nose....  juggling.

So sure of myself, I paid some professional painters here to come finish up last years projects before I started any of this years projects. Having to pay someone to do something that I was capable of doing, was like teaching me a lesson.....only I don't think it did.

Not completely finished yet with just a couple of updates left, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the projects tunnel.
If you don't want a spoiler and want to wait for the full reveal.......close your eyes and take a nap and come back later.

Craft Room update

waiting on some fun art work and putting hardware on the cabinets but the bulk of this project is done. I have assembled, labeled and painted. Now I can safely go the craft room and not only craft but be able to find things to craft with! Ahhh..... a feeling that I have not experienced in quite some time.
Office Update

Good news!  Hubby no longer has to risk his life and trip over my silhouette machine to get into his office. Other than finishing up a credenza and adding a few pillows, he will be ready to rock and roll.....and work.

I will be back later this week with some updates to the Kitchen cabinet project. It is looking so pretty, I can hardly stand it!

Are you a clown like me and working on multiple projects right now.... with or without a red nose and pink hair?

Have an amazing week!

Grateful for~
A husband that totally gets sucked into my projects...with a smile!

  1. Oh wow! That office looks great and I always like a couch/sofa/bed of some sort in an office. Looking forward to the craft room reveal and you know I can hardly wait for the kitchen one. I am totally the juggling clown right now and nowhere near the end, but that picture made me smile.

  2. Looking good! Can;t wait to see this craft room! I really need to get in mine and get it straightened back up. Love that pink rug!

  3. oh it is looking so good! love the pegboard!

  4. Love the wonderful sneak peeks!...and I am so anxious to see the kitchen reveal...So, so exciting!

  5. You are no clown honey, you're the Ring Master!

  6. Oh, I'm totally a juggler~and not a very good one! But I share my crafts room with my son, who has spread his stuff out all over my very long table and usurped a lot of my storage. Hmpf! I don't know who I'll blame when he gets his stuff under control.....hehe. Can't wait to see your reveal(s)~~lookin' good in the neighborhood already.

  7. Looking good Laura...can't wait to see your kitchen!! I'm just like you...I LOVE to stress myself out with multiple projects:)

  8. Even though that is a lot to do at one time, just think how nice it's all going to look at the same time! Loved seeing the sneak peek of your craft room. Can't wait to see your new kitchen and craft room reveal. I've been working on a project at my house this week too in my dining room. I will share it soon.

  9. Oh, I'm a clown alrighty. Only problem is I'm not a good juggler ... and keep dropping balls!

  10. You and your hubby are amazing. Everything looks fantastic!

  11. I can't wait to see the full reveal of all your rooms! You really got the new year started off right -- and to think you had little kids underfoot for a lot of it because of snow days. Imagine what you'll be able to do in March!

  12. Looking GREAT!!! I love that the two of you do multiple projects at the same time!!! Just looking at the order in your craft room made me feel peaceful and made me want to get mine organized ASAP!!! It's on our list for 2014 so I'm excited to see all the things you've done to bring organization to your space! ox (looking forward to seeing the kitchen!!!)

  13. You and I are apparently sisters in DIY! I feel like I've been going non-stop since about Thanksgiving! My hubby had the nerve to say we'd actually run out of projects one day! I'm still laughing over that one!

    Your room is taking shape, lady!

  14. Wow its looks so much better and I bet you and your husband are thrilled with how it came out.

  15. Looks wonderful! I can't imagine "knowing" where all the craft items are. :)
