- Work on our goal project
- Try a media fast
- Declutter books and media
- Flowers and bedroom cleaning
I have made some progress, but not as much as I’d like. I’ve been working on my goal project, the TV room closet, as much as I could, and I’m hoping I can get Pete to patch the walls this weekend so I can paint the walls and varnish the woodwork next weekend. Once that’s done I just need to buy and mount the shelving. It’s going to be tight but I hope to meet the end-of-month deadline!
I’m finishing the closet woodwork stripping and cleaning today. I think the upper part looks pretty good and I just need to scrub down the baseboard.
I thought about painting the lower part of the wall in a fun color, like the deep red of our flea market signage, but I think I’ll use the gold color I used on the ceiling in the living and dining rooms instead, Benjamin Moore’s Honeymoon (AF-345), which I also used in the front entry closet. There’s some gold in our Flor carpet pattern in the TV room, so I think that will look nice. The upper part will be the same color as the TV room ceiling, BM Frappé (AF-085), an off-white/creamy color. I hope I have enough leftover paint.
The second and third assignments didn’t happen, and they probably won’t. I decluttered our books a while ago, and while they could probably use more thinning, I haven’t added to them recently either so I think they’re still in pretty good shape.
I do want to try a media fast at some point, but it just didn’t happen this week.
I’ll definitely be working on the last assignment this weekend: bedroom cleaning. I noticed some major dust bunnies under the chair, and I have a bad habit of tossing clothes on the chair instead of into the hamper — must stop!
