Caulk + Paint + Spackle {craft room redo}

Today we had big plans to start reinstalling shelves in the closet, but we were bummed to discover that our spackle had dried out...so off we went to Lowes...and then to Hobby Lobby because I remembered that we have Pinewood Derby next week and have made ZERO progress on our cars....and I had handed out all of the cars our pack had, and only 1 was left, but I have two children, so needed ONE more. I couldn't bring myself to drive the 20 minutes to the scout store, and the 20 minutes home; so I opted for the off brand derby car. It'll do. 

I digress, after returning home, I threw up a ton of spackle. I even filled some random holes around the house! That feels like a huge accomplishment and one of my major "refresh" goals for 2019.  Then, I pulled out the 5+ year old paint, it was SO rusted that clumps of rust kept falling into the paint...it once I carefully stirred it up, it seemed fine! Make it work, right? I also primed the shelves I built for the doors. 


Here's a preview of one of the pinewood derby cars...

Slow, slow progress {craft room redo}

Today, after running errands and getting my hair cut, I had a few minutes before it was time to start school pick ups. I decided I would start building a shelf that could hold the ironing board with a shelf to hold the iron. I used Ana White's building plans, using scraps, so mine is shorter with a larger shelf. It'll do. 
 I also worked on building one of the two frames for the porch swing bed...

Hopefully actual progress will happen in the craft room here soon...

Caulk + Paint, Make It What It Ain't {craft room redo}

Yesterday was my children's last day of winter vacation...it feels like they've been home for about 6 years. Our housekeeper didn't come last week, and basically we are slobs...I didn't want to spend the final day of vacation cleaning, so I washed and remade all of the beds, and then took the kids for the most impressive ice cream sundaes and to the park to play. I didn't get a chance to work on anything in my craft room yesterday...






Today, childless, I had to go have a tire pressure monitor recalibrated...and then to have my eye glasses checked because my eyes are apparently reluctant to adjust to my new lenses. So in the hour between picking up from Mother's Day Out + elementary school I caulked my shelves. I caulked on my living room floor. I even used caulk to fill the pocket drill holes. I plan on priming and painting these, so we'll see if I regret my decision to caulk the pocket holes.



Now to prime and paint...
