I'm just having to limit it. Because you don't want to make big changes when your house is on the market. (Or so "they" say.) Plus you can't really make big changes when you've committed to spending a lot less and changing your entire lifestyle, which is why you have your house on the market in the first place, and are now living on a cash-only budget, that truly means actual green stuff in a wallet. (Or not. Depending upon the day's proximity to payday.)
classroom space, I've committed to finding a way to create a compact homeschooling space. I plan to convert this console table into "two desks" for my children. That way, homeschooling at the kitchen table becomes a snap. No additional classroom space needed. (Well, I mean a closet for additional manuals and supplies might be handy, but I'll cross that bridge when I buy a different house.)
I'm not allowed to touch Adrain's power tools, so perhaps you weren't wondering that. I found two of the sweetest baskets you have ever seen but they were $30.00 each. They had liners and chalkboard labels and they would have made Pottery Barn proud. But I can't afford to spend $60.00, considering that I'm hoping to sell my children's actual desks for a grand total of $30.00. (Also assuming that someone will ever buy them from me.)
not fun. All these little grooves and spaces to cover with paint. Ech!
darling little chalkboards for $1.99 each. I grabbed two of them. The only problem was that the chalkboard frame was pine, and the chalkboard was an ugly greenish-gray. I hit them with chalkboard spray paint in black (one coat) and some more creamy paint on the frame.
seasoned them, once dry, by rubbing a piece of chalk sideways, across them.
ready made labels for my crates. Have I ever mentioned that I love chalkboards? I might require an intervention, but honestly they make perfect sense to my organizational-loving brain. I hot glued them onto the crates.
sell my house. Oh yeah... and find myself another house.
minimal money spent!
Because it's fun. And right about now, I'm needing a little fun. How about you? I'm linking up here for other projects!!
