One Project a Week - Project 1: Organized Office

I often pick certain dates to begin changes in my life or my routine.  I say I'll start at the beginning of next month, or the beginning of the year, or even on my birthday, and often these changes sputter to a stop for one reason or another.  This time, it starts today.

I have so many wonderful ideas for making things and so many projects in various states of completion.  So I'm challenging myself to finish one project a week for the rest of 2011.  My idea is to focus on one main project each week while perhaps working some on coming projects.

This week is a house project - the office.  The office has been in a state of upheaval for quite some time now.  We tried having an extra bed for guests to sleep in but it was rather hard to work around such a large piece of furniture that was usually used only two or three times a year.  So we moved the frame to storage and the bed to the dumpster (it's had a good long life) to free up that half of the room.  Even after rearranging and adding a new desk and a second bookshelf from the basement the room the room is much more open, airy and easier to breathe (and work) in.

The office is half way there, all that is left is to organize a few things and clean some more.  Wish me luck!

Here's my tip - use your blog as motivation. Pick a day of the week to post about your finished project and announce the project for the next week. (At least that has helped me be accountable to myself!) I'm looking forward to seeing your completions. Maybe you'll motivate me!
