Summer Before – Craft Room

So, last week I went to link up my June Before project and realized this month (through August) Lisa is doing a Summer Before/After party instead. I’m still sticking with my June project, but I thought I’d plan a Summer Before project too. And I have the perfect project – my craft room!

To say the room is a mess would be a serious understatement - It’s a disaster area! It was clean and functional at one point…not anymore. I can’t believe I’m about to show you these pictures…just know – I’m not proud of this mess.

OK, now let’s talk about my plan:
Trash/Donate everything not needed
Move “garage stuff” into the garage
Relocate anything else that shouldn’t be in there

Paint the walls
Paint the trim and door
Paint the shelves
New chair(s)
Create sewing station
Create craft station
Organize remaining items

To hold myself accountable, I’m going to post craft room updates – good or bad – on June 20th, July 18th, and August 15th. Yep, a set schedule to force myself to complete this room. Otherwise, I probably won’t start working on it until the end of August and stress myself out trying to finish the room. Sigh, I would totally do that…

Anyway, if you have any summer projects you need a little motivation on, link them up to Lisa’s party. And you can follow my once a month update schedule if that helps too.
