This pic was my May inspiration but as I mentioned before I found it on Pinterest and can't find the source, or I'd source the heck out of it.
Project-Per-Month Project HOW IT WORKS... If you want to join in the fun, you totally should! Here are the rules...
- Pick a single, manageable project off your to-do list, just one.
- Decide, "I can do it!" ps. You really can. Yes you can!
- Give yourself goals.
- Give yourself a deadline: the end of the month.
- Give yourself a budget.
- Do it. Do it.
My favorite parts are the pendant light I made and the organic blanket I found at Target (that didn't photograph so well, but it's great). For the reading light, my dad was visiting and showed me how to wire a lamp kit to an extension cord. Then I hand-wrapped the cord in basic twine. It cost $18 and took 2 days and it turned out so charming. Oh, and the plants. Plants are just the best.
For June I am going to maybe take on a few micro-projects. The main one will be replacing the drawer pulls on the kids' dresser since one fell off and a few are loose. I'm not even giving myself a budget since that's such a teeny project, but I can't wait to go pull shopping. I secretly window-shop vintage drawer pulls on Etsy more often than is at all cool.
Ok, that's me, now you... Did you do a May project? Will you be doing a June project? I hope so! Three cheers for productivity!
