While Andy and the kids are away, I do projects! First, I replaced the shelf in our combination Mud Room/Laundry Room with three, stackable shoe shelves. Overall, it was a $40 investment at Lowe’s that will work much better for us. No more shoes all over the floor!
Then, I painted chalkboards on the kids’ bedroom walls. This is John’s room. I think the kids are going to be so excited! I have to go out tomorrow and buy chalk and erasers. Andy will eventually add trim around the boards for a more “finished” look.
Finally, I took the shelf that was in our laundry room and put it in Laura’s room for more storage. She needed more shelf space for books and various American Girl accessories. I had to move some pictures around on the walls, but the overall addition of the shelf will really help!
On top of all that, I also cleaned the entire upstairs, including all three bathrooms. It was a busy night, but completely worth it. Now, it is time for some television and a glass of wine!
