Imagine the Impossibilities, My Version

In January, I joined the "Imagine the Impossibilities" challenge. I posted goals, not realizing we were supposed to accomplish them before January 31!

However, I am proud to say that 3 of my house goals were accomplished!

My first minor goal was to get the shelf put up in Daniel's room. Jeff had been
reluctant to hang it , but finally gave in. It looks great and was actually in my bedroom as a teenager!

Second, we had our master bed and bath repainted, PLUS got new bedding. It looks great! Now every room in the house has been repainted since we moved's time to start over...with the kids' bathroom...

My last project I started planning over Christmas. I've seen all of the locker systems on blogs, Pinterest and catalogs. I decided we could really use one for all of our shoes, jackets, sports bags, get the picture. I measured my area and had the construction class at school build them. After some carpenter's putty and finishing paint, it looks wonderful! It was hard to get a good picture of the unit, my hallway/laundry area is very narrow. The unit has two towers and a bench with more cubbies.

My most ambitious goal hasn't been tackled yet. I've still got to get a carpenter over to build a wall and finish the attic...

I’m sorry it took me so long to get to your « Impossibility Challenge » post – this thing called “work” got in the way! But I’m here now and it’s great to read about your locker system - & your other projects too. I made the same mistake as you - thinking I had a year to complete my challenge I've not got very far! You're much cleverer than me and have done far more!
Congratulations on making your impossibility possible!
