It is very easy for any DIY project to become overwhelming. Not only can one project become overwhelming but the number of projects left to complete can give anyone a headache. Sometimes it seems like a never ending list.
My biggest piece of advice is to take each project one tiny step at a time. And sometimes I mean TINY.
Breakdown each project into small segments that can be completed in one afternoon or one weekend.
My my next big project I have planned is to build a custom wardrobe in one of our spare rooms. However, actually building the wardrobe will be the last step.
One afternoon I moved an electrical outlet out of the way.
I also had to remove the base molding and remove a little leftover wallpaper.
on my next day off I repaired the drywall from moving the outlet
I had to wait for that to dry so the next day I sanded and primed it
the next day, once the primer was dry, I textured the wall
now that is dry my next step will be to prime and prep for paint.
Like I said TINY steps. I feel like I’ve done so much but I’m only 1/10th of the way done with the project.
And sometimes it’s okay to put the hammer down and go to bed.
When looking at the enormity of a project, like a home renovation it’s easy to get lost in all the things you have to do. Just take a step back and remember that all homes starts with 4 walls and a roof.
I hope this helps,
