It’s time for another edition of the Young House Love Book Project Challenge!
In case you missed it last month, every month, I will choose a project from the Young House Love book and and “git ‘er done”. I fully expect some of them to be disasters, but how do you ever learn anything without first making a big mess of something?
Let’s get each other motivated to keep DIYing! Here’s how you can join in:
1) Choose a project from the YHL book and git ‘er done by Tuesday, August 13th. I’ll leave the Linky open for a week after that so you’ll have some additional time.
3) Link up your project here using the Linky and check out the projects that others have done.
This month, I’m tackling a totally different kind of project.
This is all the paperwork we have that is related to our condo. Some of it is warranty-type stuff. Some of it is future decorating plans type stuff. Some of it needs to be tossed in the trash. Regardless, this huge pile made Project #092 a very appealing project for this month.
The essence of the project is this: take all the upholstery samples, paint chips, fabric samples, flooring samples, appliance warranties, room and furniture dimensions and anything else related to the house and organize it into a binder by room. This way when you want to make a decorating decision, you can take the binder out shopping with you. And when something breaks (like the handle on the washing machine
), you don’t have to sort through the pile above to see if it’s covered by the warranty or not (it wasn’t).
I already had some of the necessary supplies, though I will need to secure an appropriate binder.
But before I started the process of putting together the binder, I wanted to see if there were other examples of there of how to put together a “whole house binder”.
So there’s a little more inspiration for the project. Next Tuesday, August 13th, I’ll post the results of my project and we’ll have a little link party! And spread the word about the challenge! Let’s see if we can get a few more participants this round.
Do you have a YHL book challenge project picked out for August? Let me know in the comments!
