Second, Operation: Zero Dollar Decorating is about to commence. As you have already read, I do plan to spend some money on decorating, but that money will not come out of our checking, savings, or be put on a credit card. I will only spend cash that I can make by selling things on Craigslist.
That's the short version, here's a slightly more detailed breakdown of how I plan on doing things.
The first thing that I need to do is get this house clean! I put off so many chores over the last few busy weeks and our house is a disaster. While I'm getting things clean and organized, I'll also be pulling items that can be sold on Craigslist. I have a bunch of accessories that no longer go with our living room since I changed up the color palette. We also have plenty of items that haven't been used in years and it's time for them to find a new home and stop taking up space in my house.
While I'm waiting for things to sell on Craigslist, I'm going to start on some projects that I already have the supplies for. Here's a short list of the projects I can think of right now:
-paint the laundry room
-paint an old trunk for our bedroom
-paint the second floor hallway
-begin second floor hallway gallery wall
-make-over on builder grade chandelier for dining area
Looks like I have a lot of painting in my future.
Since it may take some time for me to get some cash in hand, you can expect a bit less decorating around here and a few more recipes and mood boards.
Today I'm going to be cleaning like a mad woman! Fun! That's not sarcasm, by the way. I'm genuinely happy to be cleaning my house rather than sitting through beginning of the school year work days.
Have a great Tuesday!
