You know how, at the end of the kid’s school year everyone is dreaming of summer? I am pretty sure I wrote about it here, and even proclaimed I would be singing like Olaf from Frozen “In suuuummmmeeerrrrr”. it is wonderful, I am enjoying it. But, BUT…. the kids being home 24/7 is kicking my booty. I had a good system of Nora in school all day, the boy’s in preschool for 3 hours, and sometimes even a nap happened in the afternoon with them. I had plenty of time for writing, projects, cleaning the house, going potty without someone either trying to break down the door or pass notes under it. It was hectic, yes with running the kids all over. Summer has it’s own challenge for me. With me being a stay at home Mom I can sleep in, I can… that does not mean I get to. My kid’s wake up anywhere between 7 am to 8:45. We are not doing any organized sports this summer because of some various fun and long vacations we have planned. So the day’s are pretty wide open. Meaning my kids are with me ALL THE TIME.
This has tapped into my creativity time. My getting projects done time. The laundry room has had a few new additions, I have a to-do list for the home that is 4 pages long. Literally 4 pages of projects for my house. To say I have a lot I want to do, and hopefully share here is a big understatement. I have plenty to entertain you all and fill Pinterest for a long time. I just need the whole time issue to get it done. I am explaining all of this, because; one, my kids are actually playing and leaving me alone. Two, Dale is working from home today so I do get a little more me time. I am milking this me time for all it is worth. Lastly, I am sharing all of this because I had planned to have a big laundry room and organization reveal today. I did not quite make it to my timeline of things being done. I do still have some beautiful inspiration for you all.
I created this simple console table, which is being shared over at Homedit. You can find the tutorial here. This is a much smaller scaled console table then what I have shared before. This is now sitting in my basement. We have a big time game room down there with a pool table, air hockey table, and seating area. I have not shared it yet, because it currently has a bunch of baseboards sitting in it being sanded and painted. Also a spray painting station is set up in one corner. I guess we do not utilize this space. I also sold just about every decor piece down there in our rummage sale. I am planning on revamping it, hence the need for this simple console table. I will get to the point where I can reveal the space. Eventually. I am trying to enjoy summer, my kid’s, life, the longer days, the sun and warmth, and still juggle writing, and projects. I think things will move slower around here for the next few weeks. My go-go attitude will have to take a chill pill.
Head on over to Homedit to see the ridiculously simple way I made this. There was no cutting of wood, all I did was spray paint some pipes and screw them in. As my kids say, easy-peasy. I am off to console a crying child, take a dog to the veterinarian, do a ton of laundry, make some oatmeal cookies, get a hair cut, and oh yeah, have the predetermined, winter dreamed up lazy summer day. How is your summer going so far?
