I am so excited about this party I can hardly contain myself! For one thing, I LOVE a good party. For two....I love a deadline! Yes, that's right. A DEADLINE. Be it hosting a party in your own home, having the relatives that you never see suddenly show up for a visit, or just your own personal one. I, for one, struggle with imposing the deadlines on myself, but love it when circumstances impose them on me. When I have a deadline, or a goal, to work towards, I am one happy camper. Because at the end of it only YOU are the most proud of your HARD WORK.
So, when I stumbled across Melissa's post at the Inspired Room, my wheels began a-turnin'. Just what could I get done that I have been putting off? It didn't take long for me to go straight to the laundry room. It is one of those rooms that you WORK in, WALK through, and, frankly, don't want to spend too much time in. This summer I surprised a dear friend of mine by making over her laundry room. Of course, this only led to laundry room envy.
Pay no attention to the cabinet doors that have yet to be hung. I offered out my husband's services to which he has yet to provide. Thankfully, we have good friends:)
Okay, okay. So, enough about them....back to me and my sad tale of a laundry room.
Oh, dear. It's worse than I thought. What am I signing myself up for?! Deep breaths.....I have TWO WEEKS people. Two weeks to get this puppy looking shiny and new. And, of course, it's all about accountability. You know I can't put this out there without some serious ribbing if I leave it incomplete.
So, I've got BIG plans for this tiny little space. How I would love the counter top space or even a utility sink in here....it is not to be, though, so I will work with what I have. Oh, and BTW, I am going to try and do this for next to nothing. Can we do it? Yes, we can!!
As an added bonus, I would love those of you who are following this blog but are not blogging, to join me on this adventure. Send me your BEFORE and AFTER photos of a project you are going to tackle between the days of October 6-20 and I will showcase your efforts here at the end of the TWO WEEKS. Just because you're not blogging doesn't mean you can't join in on the fun! Check out The Inspired Room for ideas on WHAT project to do. It's an amazing blog that has, well, lots of inspiration.
Okay, who's with me? Come October 20th lay your paint brushes down, unplug your staple guns, and send me those AFTER photos!
Can't wait to share in the joy of a finished project with you all!
