First Creative Project of 2012!

I made it my New Year’s resolution to actually be creative this year instead of just reading about creativity on Ravelry and Pinterest. I was so excited when a creative project fell right into my lap!

Yesterday I pulled out of the driveway and saw that the neighbors had thrown away a dresser. I drove along, but the dresser niggled at my mind. I called home and told one of the twins to bring it in and put it into the garage. Instead it ended up in the foyer where I can’t stop looking at it.

It’s much bigger than I thought it was, so it won’t fit into my closet. I was hoping to use it as an out-of-the-way storage system for some craft supplies (mainly yarn–sue me, I have an addiction!). Instead, I am going to use it right here in my office area to store yarn, and hold my printer on top.

Today I gathered my supplies: scrapbook paper, Modge Podge, paint, sandpaper. I was more than thrilled to be able to go to Michael’s and pick up the drawer pulls I had spotted a few days ago. Again, something niggling in my mind making me want them…bad!

Jim’s doing some minor repairs to the drawers. I’m going to start sanding the laminate.

The good thing about this being in the living room rather than the garage is that I keep looking at it and know it needs to be done! This is no out-of-sight-out-of-mind project that I can put off endlessly.

I’ll be documenting my progress!
