31 Days to Decorate Confidently. Day 28: A Project File

So now that you’ve explored all the possibilities for your room, what’s next? It’s time to put everything together…

Make a project file with everything you have accumulated for the space you will be decorating…

Include: Inspiration photos for the project, your floor plan, shopping lists, paint colors, etc.

Store items such as business cards, samples, receipts and more.

Keep an ongoing list of what you need, what you already have and tasks that need to be done. Check it off as you go. Lists keep you from becoming overwhelmed by a project.

Establish a budget and track expenses as you go. Here’s a link to a free budget form that will automatically calculate your expenses and tell you what you have left to spend.

Assignment: Put together a project file for you space. Make sure to carry it with you and keep it in the car for unexpected quick stops at the store. Use your floor plan to show sales people your room and pull out your paint chips as a resource when selecting items to ensure that they will match.
