The man came home from Winnipeg, with the vehicle fairly bursting! He is upstairs as we speak, putting together a nifty little tower that will house every scarf and bauble that I own. Last night, he put together the vanity, which came complete with a glass top, and one long top drawer to house all of my paints, powders and brushes!
I am so looking forward to getting all of my bits and bobs organized! The problem with smaller closets, is that they are smaller. The good thing about smaller closets? They are smaller! Absolutely no room to collect things you will never wear again. You need to find alternative ways to keep everything accessible. After all, if you can't get at it in a few seconds, you may as well not have it. Being basically lazy human beings, we have a tendency not to bother getting something that is difficult to reach, opting instead to wear the thing that is conveniently close at hand.
After these little numbers are put together, I will sort and purge once again. Then, the painting will begin We have decided to reno the bathrooms first. Then it will the the kitchen's turn. THEN the new flooring will come. There is absolutely no point in having a floor put down, and then tracking all sorts over it! But there is no harm in installing new hardware, lighting, and putting down a few coats of paint in the bedrooms while we wait for the bathrooms to be done. We are happily living in squalor. There is something to be said for not having to be so careful with your home! And, we aren't in a rush. Yes, that is me talking. By not in a rush? I mean ASAP but taking a few hours to enjoy life along the way!
