One of the hardest things about being creative is actually finishing projects. So many times, I will start a great project, get it in place, & then go onto the next exciting project without actually finishing the previous one.
Now Kristi, at Addicted2Decorating, is starting a weekly challenge, aptly named ‘Make It Happen Monday’ whereby she, and anybody else who dares to take it on, is setting out a specific project to finish THIS WEEK.
Then, next Monday we will come back with the finished project [yup, it better be done] & pick another project to be finished the following week. And so on, until, I guess, we run out of unfinished projects [yeah, like that’ll ever happen with me!].
Of course, I have a ton of unfinished projects around here — it was actually quite difficult for me to actually pick one. What will I get done? Can I actually voice my commitment to finish something & dare I post it?
I decided to work my way backwards & finish my latest project — #30, my bedroom shutters:
So, my commitment to Make It Happen Monday is to paint the sliders for my bedroom shutters. I want to paint the ends the same blue as the wall & the middle sections in the same ivory as the shutter trim.
Check back next Monday [June 11th] to see how I do.
Ironically, I just managed to get this post FINISHED on Monday — so typical. Yeah, it’s almost midnight, but I made it! 😆
