I'll Get Right On That

Whenever I go shopping, find a great deal, or collect materials for my latest project, I always say, "I'll get right on that!" 

Sometimes, I'm fired up enough about the project and I hold true to my word...but most of the time the project gets piled away in my studio, no, storage shed, no, project graveyard.  

Because of this, I've disciplined myself by a self-imposed "grounding" of sorts from Savers, Goodwill, yard sales, Craigslist, and anywhere else I frequently pick up "To Do" projects.

...and this is why........Do you remember back in August when I found all of these items at Savers for a grand total of $28.00?

Well, as of a few weeks ago I hadn't done a single thing with any of those items other than the picture frame you see on the top shelf of the bookcase (which was used during my chandelier project).

It's sad.  It's pathetic.  It's down-right ugly!

I have so many plans and ideas for all of these things...it's a shame they sit unattended for so long.

The good news is I'm hoping to change all of this by chipping away at the piles of unfinished projects, and I started with a few of the items you see in this photo.

It's nothing grand...it's nothing glorious...but at least it's progress...

I hung some shelves!

And yes, I'll admit...there has been some celebratory dancing going on over this small, trivial accomplishment. Ha!

Now, all I've got to do is change out the artwork in the picture frames, paint the shelves themselves, and maybe even paint a few of the frames.  Sounds simple enough!

I'll get right on that...

How about helping your mom and I with the design and construction of our patio off the family room and using this project for a posts on your blog?

Not sure if I'm up for the patio, but are you guys still wanting the office done?
