This week I've been talking about the idea of a free summer. As much as I like to play games with the kids I also enjoy improving the home. And since money is uber tight I'm having to think free in this arena as well.
I've been working on my own free summer DIY list for the home. To be perfectly honest it consists mostly of finishing projects I've already started or already bought the supplies for and have yet to begin.
Sounds like this free summer challenge is just what my booty needs to get some things done around here!
I'm throwing it out here...here's what I want to accomplish this summer...or at least what I CAN accomplish without spending any more money.
My free summer DIY list:
Paint Ada’s room - paint is already bought and waiting in her room
Hang Adas curtains
DIY art in bathroom
DIY roman shade in bathroom
Hang curtains in master bedroom
Hang art above bed in master bedroom
Paint master bathroom - think I have enough leftover bedroom paint
Organize and label kitchen cabinets
Finish gallery wall in basement stairway - yea, that's not done yet!
DIY art on upper stairway - already have something in mind
Chalkboard on upper stairway
DIY curtains in Alex’s room? - no idea on this one
Sew pillows - pillow forms abound in my house, why have I not tackled them yet?
Paint boys bathroom - use leftover living room paint
Paint laundry room - use leftover something paint?
Sort through storage room -sell or Goodwill items
Refinish lamps and lights - might not have what I need for this one...we'll see.
Pin board in kitchen
DIY roman shade in kitchen
DIY art in basement - endless possibilities
There you have my list of all the things I'm perfectly capable of accomplishing with out spending another dime. I'll be checking off the list here as we go. And of course I'll be sharing along the way!
Do you make summer home goals? Any home improvements you try to tackle when the kids are home from school?
