Making Progress.....

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful."

~Mark Victor Hansen~

I think...
that I am making progress on my studio space. But, I cannot decide if I feel like this...
"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! I'm over due! I'm in a rabbit stew! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" Or this..."Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!" Everyone needs a Dori in their life to encourage them to keep on going even when the clock is ticking and the odds seem against us. Thank you all for being my Dori, you are such great encouragers!

I undertook my most ambitious project for the room yesterday and hope to have it complete today. I gathered pieces and parts from my architectural salvage stash to build a shabby chic shelving unit.
After a little alteration and cleaning all the pieces got a fresh coat of white paint. I wish I had take before photos but I am under time constraints here so I just jumped right into the project without thinking about it.Handy Hubby helped me to assemble it all last night and today I just have the shelving to work on. Tomorrow it is on to pretty fluff and stuff and hopefully to photograph. Everything will not be "just right" or as perfect as I had hoped it would be before I shared the space with you but I will continue to step past the challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions with a "So what" attitude. This space will more than likely never be complete. It will change, grow, and expand in whatever direction creativity takes it. Anyway, I'll just keep swimming until I get this shelving unit done. I'll see you all on Friday!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

All of your pieces looks so wonderful it is hard to believe they are 'salvage'! I am just about as excited as you to see what it will look like! You always do a terrific job, so I know it will be beautiful!
Anxiously awaiting the 'after' pics! ;~}

Oh boy! I can hardly wait. I've been hearing about this everywhere...Dawn's, Karen's, and here. I'm so going to love taking a peek at everyone's space looking for inspiration. (Nope, no time to whip my little space into shape.)

How fun! We've had a touch of Fall weather in July - just perfect for working on a project such as yours. I know it will be beautiful and can't wait to see what ideas you come up with.

You've got the most fun part to look forward to- an empty bookshelf is just full of possibilities!

Look at all you have done! I love the keep swimming...so true.
Life is a series of challenges, and some will not be done when we think they should be, but with every new step we feel closer to the goal...it will be lovely.
Hugs, Mary
