Why is planning home decorating projects important? Let’s start by asking following question.
What do following have in common? 1) Boxes of odds & ends collecting dust in basement
2) Bags of discarded curtains, bedspreads and pillows in attic
3) Half empty paint cans stacked against a wall in garage
It could mean you have a hard time parting with anything, however, in this case all these point to decorating attempts gone astray.
Let me continue with a short story: “The Discovery” Once upon a time there was a very cluttered basement. Over years occupants of home had done nothing but toss things down there.
When it finally became obvious that only way to get from one side to other was with use of a road map, Mom decided it was time to clean house.
As she began going through numerous boxes and after opening an infinite number of storage bags, she began to realize that one particular phrase was continually being repeated, “Why did I buy this”.
After what seemed like an eternity in basement, she moved on to check other parts of house.
What she discovered probably could have been used in a Steven King novel, abandoned items in basement has multiplied and had taken up residence in every out of way space they could find.
There were signs of them in all closets, cupboards, under beds even in garage.
