I hope I’m not the only one who just can’t keep up sometimes… who completely forgets that people are coming over, or goes to the grocery store only to come home with everything except the one thing I went to buy, or looks at her calendar only to find not a single free night in the next three weeks. Please tell me I’m not alone.
In an effort to rein things in a bit at Maison de Pax, I’m starting a new project: Operation Organization. I’ve always said this blog was about combining my love of beautiful and functional makeovers with my need to process things so I can be intentional in pursuing peace… I’m telling you – Operation Organization feels like a life-or-death assignment these days! So to kick off my series, I give you this paint dipped basket.
I hope to share little things I’ve made or done that will be fun, beautiful, thrifty, etc. BUT also help me put my ducks in a row…
This little basket was holding my fabric scraps, but it was taking up space in a WAY overcrowded closet because the very orange streak didn’t complement anything in my house.
And what do I do to everything? Why, whitewash it, of course! 😉 No really, I decided it needed a little neutralizing, so I used Lazy Linen and Rocky Mountain (two gorgeous new colors from Country Chic Paint) to make it more my style.
Now it can sit in any corner, looking beautiful, and hiding my enormous pile of
I can’t bring myself to throw anything away fabric.
I’ll give a tutorial soon, but for today I simply wanted to post the project.
Operation Organization, that is… Who’s with me?
