Craft Room Organization: Part 3

Ugh! This is so much work! I asked my husband how long it should take to paint a room. He said it would take him about 3 hours. Well, it took me about 2 hours to put up all this tape!

IMG_1889Here is a picture before. If you look at the left side you can see all the paint marks. These were left from my daughter though all the time she painted canvases and stuff in this area. Because I hated the wall, I didn’t take such a good before shot. I really didn’t think it’d come so clean.


IMG_1970Here is the after picture, the wall is on the right side of the picture. Those ‘magic erasers’ did the trick. Although, I had both Mr. Clean and Big Lot’s generic type. The generic worked just as good. The more expensive ones with the blue scrubbies were the worst. The blue ‘scrubber’ was useless and there was less of the useful white part. Just for cleaning the wall it took an hour and a half, and that was with help. My daughter helped with the painted wall and Frankie my cat was our supervisor. He is very good at his job, jumping up to show us where we missed.

Tomorrow I will start painting. Hopefully, it will only take me 3 hours. For the rest of today I am going through my scrapbook materials. I will get all the ‘scrapping’ done tonight or it’s being tossed or donated. My patience is gone! Too many things I’ve been meaning to do and they all add up.

One super wonderful thing I found is my new favorite Jelly Bean! Gimbal’s Bumble Beans. They are all different shapes and flavors. They say they are gourmet, and they taste it! I really like the fact that these are the jelly beans that didn’t come out of the mold perfectly. Some look quite funny. They are awesome delicious and at Big Lots. Big Lots, if you haven’t noticed, is my new favorite store.  I should be a spokesperson for them.
