I am forever and always on the lookout for another project that I can squeeze in between school and naps and chores and errands and food and jumping on the trampoline.
Which is to say that not much of my project-ing gets done. But a girl can dream...
I've learned that the projects most likely to get done are ones that I can involve the family in. Or at least the husband!
With that in mind, I've been looking at projects that could be tackled in one day. A weekend, tops. Things that will be either helpful to our home or fun for the kids. I'll save the fluffy stuff that I love so very much for one day when I have free time.
Which is to say I am okay with most of it never happening. My people are way cooler than a piece of painted wood or a newly made outfit.
For starters, how about this?
|East Coast Creative|
I love that this table was made by it's owners. In their garage. Joshua and I have a bit of history with making furniture in the garage, you know. And the kids LOVE power tools! (quit yer frettin', it's all superly-supervised!)
I ran across this brilliant idea the other day and am wholly in love with the idea.
|Trash To Treasures|
This one would totally be for my kiddos. Especially Thomas and his entrepreneurial mind.
|I Know The Plans I Have For You|
Yep, another totally frugal project. It starts off with 3 pallets... Thomas is already conjuring plans on what the hours will be and who works when. The world needs to be on high alert with that boy. He's gonna make waves. I just hope his Daddy and I are up to the task of teaching him to make good waves!
And for the school room...
I have several other Pinteresting ideas, but reality says these will keep us plenty busy. If we are all bright and shiny and quick, then I'll happily rustle up a few more!
