Projects in Progress

Lest you think I'm just spending all my free time on pintrest, let me assure you that we really have been working. : ) Problem is, we either don't have all the necessary tools, or we just haven't unboxed them. Grrrrr...... Bottom line, several projects have been started, but none have been completed. I'll go ahead and share a few pix of what we've been up to.

Hanging shelves in the garage to store all of my holiday decorations......

This shelf is 12 feet long. We've got plans to go all the way around the garage at least once. We've got plenty of room, so we might put up a second shelf just under this first one.

These are just a FEW of our Christmas decorations!

Creating our "J" wall......

Yes, I know some of them are crooked. There's also one missing. Wanna know what else is missing??? My glue gun!! As soon as I find it, I'll get those pesky, crooked J's glued to the wall.

All of the J's fit perfectly in the space between the laundry room and pantry. This is the view from the island. I think it looks GREAT!!

Just a fun craft......

This is my new BFF - don't know why I never purchased one before. It made spray painting SO MUCH easier!!

Here's my $3 tray. The label on the back says this is supposed to be for a Pyrex baking dish, but I had other ideas. I knew it would be the perfect place to corral the sugar, sweetener, creamer - you know, all the stuff that accompanies your morning coffee.

A fresh coat of black paint and this tray has a whole new life!! Our Keurig is just to right of the tray. (Out of the picture.)

As soon as I unpack my Cricut cartridges and black vinyl, I will make new labels for the canisters and this project will be complete!

Well, that's enough of an update for now. Guess I'd better unpack a few more boxes so I can get these projects finished!

Terrific job! I was looking for a way to label some of my canisters that wasn't done on a label machine and there you were with yours. Thanks so much! It all looks terrific and glad you find the sprayer so handy.

This is terrific! Was looking to see how you'd done the labels as I was looking for a way to do same without using the labelled. Looks fantastic - really great job!
