The last few months, I took an unintentional break from DIY . Let me rephrase that, I’ve planned, I’ve started, I’ve dabbled but I haven’t completed anything that I was inspired to write about. Hence the blog posts have not been forthcoming because I’ve been in a DIY slump.
Happily though, I think I am now back into the DIY spirit and started finishing a project I started last November, my kitchen. It was suppose to be a two week facelift but one thing lead to another and it turned into a mini makeover. I have a ways to go and will post about it soon.
Mr. DIY and I have been tackling the dreaded garage for three consecutive weekends.
I realize this before shot could qualify for an episode on Hoarders and is rather shocking. But we are ready for change.
We devoted two hours each weekend and we made real progress. We donated a lot to Build It Green
Doing our best to spare the landfill as much as possible..
Then week 2 and another trip to Build it Green, minus the dishwasher which is going to the salvage yard.
And, finally, week 3 and another donation.
As, the clean out progressed we were throwing away less which always makes me happy.
These days, things are a little more orderly now. Not pretty, just orderly. I can find things again! Yeah!
One more weekend and we should be done and then it’s garage sale time.
And, of course, whatever doesn’t sell will be donated.
Our Summer plan is to turn the garage into a functional workspace . That is a DIY dream that both of us share. Oh that would be such blissful goodness:)
Do you have one of those spaces that always seems to turn into a dumping ground?
