I get itchy fingers. I have recently been overwhelmed by the urge to craft and create. I'm finally getting enough sleep that I don't collapse into a TV induced coma after getting Felix to bed. I spent months without any desire to create (I guess creating a human satisfied my crafting needs for a while), but now my fingers absolutely itch with the need to make stuff.
Sadly, I only have about 1 free hour each day and that's really time I should be cleaning up the kitchen or making lunches for the next day. To avoid cluttering the house (and my brain) with a bunch of half finished projects I am instituting a new craft rule: I must totally complete a project - or deem it a failure - before acquiring the materials for and starting a new project. I tend to get excited and ahead of myself so this is hard for me. But necessary considering how little time I have.
My current project is our downstairs half bath. It's a tiny, sad, undecorated room. But never fear, I have big plans!
Create canvas art a la:Southern Belle *Done. Didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted, but it will work. Fun new trashcan.
- Chevron the walls (yes, I just turned chevron into a verb) using this method: Offbeat Home
- Paint and install already owned Ikea mirror glossy white to match the white cabinet above the toilet and to provide a little shelf storage.
- Change light fixture.
- Switch hardware to something a little less builder grade. Probably Ikea.
- Add a natural fiber rug for warmth (still on the fence about this one)
