Rainy Yet Productive Day?

You guys {my followers} are amazing! Thank you so much for the help on this post. It definitely helped me make a decision to buy... drum roll please... the green and white fabric. Go figure, it was pretty much a landslide. So after my 10-hour work day today I will be making the big purchase and hopefully getting this bench seat done!  

To be honest, I’ve never been so happy to wake up and see rain.
It is absolutely pouring down rain right now and as I sit at work my head is reeling with things I would rather be doing. The weather has been so hot lately that it has made it nearly impossible to motivate me to do anything that involves breaking a sweat. So since this weather is going to continue for the rest of the day, I pulled out this checklist I made about a week ago and I am going to see how much I can accomplish from it tonight:
-Do the final coat of primer on the bathroom walls
-Paint ceiling and windows white
-Buy paint from Home Depot/Sherwin Williams for walls
-Paint walls
-Strip down the old window frame to be made into a bathroom mirror
-Paint "bench" white
-Make a bench cushion
-Write down the measurements for the tile flooring
-Get a guard for the heater- Paint white
-Create storage dividers for inside bench?
-Pour a glass of wine
-Make a painting/home improvement play list on my iPod
-Buy/paint/hang pegboard wall
-DIY paintings for bathroom art {mini art projects}
Let’s see how much I actually get done. Usually whenever I write out a list though, I get inspired because I love to cross things out! Plus, I know how much you guys are just dying to see my bench final project, right?! {I am kidding.} So hopefully this blog post will motivate me. Wish me luck.

Babe if you are going to be doing all that work, you definitely need to pour a glass of wine. Good luck! :) xoxo

I just discovered your blog today and it's fantastic! I'm now following.

I already know we have two things in common: a love for to-do lists...and wine. :)

At least a rainy day will prevent you from procrastinating outside! But I usually find myself cuddled in the couch with a book on a rainy day =]

I am a compulsive list maker but my only problem is that after the lists are made, they're very rarely referred to again. Don't be like me. Start checking stuff off asap. Good luck!
