Still building...and running out of TIME! One Room Challenge Week 5

Ok, I am going to make this short and sweet.

I have less than a week and I am WAY behind.  Like I am seriously stressed.  Except when I have those moments (I think I live in a false reality) when I rationalize, I can do this...

Really?!  It is supposed to be snowing outside...I have wood to cut!  Ha!

Still building one room challenge week 5, MyLove2Create

I am working hard and so maybe I bit off more than I can chew.  (major understatement)

But I am not going to give up...
building beds
I got the beds built...but still have to install them.
adding trim to planked art
I worked on a fun piece of "art" for the room.
sneak peek of art
Finished another fun piece of DIY art. :)
wood for lego tables
And built the Lego tables...this was my biggest time stealer...and I still have to paint them and install hardware...Eeek!

I still have to finish the closet, and put the pulls on the dresser, and caulk the trim, and...AND...AND...AND....!!!!

That is it. (bwah ha ha!)  So, I just want to thank you for following along and all your encouraging words and super nice comments that give me major boosts of energy and confidence (I am totally serious, you guys are the best!) I truly appreciate you!

  5. oh my gosh! You're working so hard. I wish I could help you-I would if I were closer.

    I think I'm loving the A :)

    can't wait to see it all come together... if it's a little late, it's not the end of the world, right?


  6. Mindi you're amazing! The art looks really cool and I can't wait to see everything!

  7. Hi Mindi, There is never enough time. Plus add the daily family duties! Seriously you are AMAZING! Heh, deadlines. It'll get done one way or another. Can't wait for the big finish. To put things into perspective our bathroom is not finished! & I don't want to say how long I've been waiting. If only I had your mad skills! I'd be tiling right now ;) xo
    PS. Thanks for sharing at this week's party.

  8. Wow! You are Super Woman! Geesh, you are showing all that lumber who's boss. lol I love the letter A art and can not wait to see the final reveal next week. I wish I was closer to help ( I have been painting, spackling and caulking here like crazy) and I could most definitely learn some building skills from you. :)

    Grab a cup of coffee or Red Bull (or both) and rock this makeover! I know you can do this! :D


  9. You go girl, go! You really are amazing. Can't wait to see it all! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
