Charlotte asked me this question.
But I want to know, how did you do projects like that when your kiddos were small? Till I make sure my men are fed, have clean clothes, and habitable living quarters; there's not much time left for painting projects. Which makes me depressed, because it takes FOREVER to get one completed! So what's the answer?
I want to hear from others, too. Here’s my thought. You can’t do a home redo project, sewing, or painting without having a mess. Projects and Messes go together like cake and ice cream, pancakes and syrup, camping and fishing, pencil and paper, boys and girls, or red, white, and blue. If you plan to do a project; prepare your family for the messes part of it. You simply can’t do all the normal dailies and expect to still have time to create. My mom always said this as she launched a new home project, “It’s gonna get worse before it gets better!” in reference to messy floors, stacked up furniture, or undone dishes.
Okay, over to you. What do you do?
