Let’s talk summer projects!

Summer has hit hard and fast this year and in a perfect world, I would complete one project each month. But things seem to be a bit busier than I expected, so I’m paring down and choosing two I really care about.

When it comes to your own summer planning, take the time to look around your house and think about a couple things that would really make an impact. Maybe it’s a really organized closet with a capsule wardrobe or going through your kitchen cabinets and drawers to clean out all the extras and broken or worn out gadgets, or cleaning out all the mismatched tupperware. I mean honestly, where do all those lids go?

For me, I’ve decided to focus on painting a large piece of furniture and a tile project. The furniture I got years ago from a place called Gildmaster. Back in the early 2000s, it was the coolest showroom at High Point Furniture Market. Every market they produced an over the top showroom and furniture to match. But the colors from that era ring true, it’s painted gold and green and needs a change!

The second is a tile backsplash in the kitchen. When I moved in, I did a soft remodel and I had no funds for a backsplash. So I installed beadboard and a coat of paint. Now I’m able to add the wow factor. I’m looking at all kinds of tile and installation styles. I’ll keep you posted.

A big part of accomplishing projects in your home is setting aside the time just like you would for projects at work. Giving them value and learning the steps to complete them makes all the difference. Have you ever had a project where you knew you would love the end results, but never quite got around to it? We all know that’s called procrastination, and I come in a close second for the queen of procrastination. This may surprise you, because I can make magic happen no matter the circumstances for my clients, but for myself I seem to put things on the back burner.

So let’s get excited! Feel free to jump on the summer projects bandwagon and shoot me an email with your project and plans! This is going to be fun.
