52 Furnishing Facelifts - Challenge Goals and Rules

52 Furnishing Facelifts - Challenge Goals and Rules

Welcome back, furnishing enthusiasts! As we dive headfirst into 2024, we're gearing up for the ultimate challenge: completing 52 Furnishing Facelifts in the span of a year. But before we jump into the nitty-gritty, let's establish some ground rules and set our sights on the goals ahead.

In our previous blog post, "The Ultimate Furnishing Facelift: 52 Transformations in 52 weeks," we reflected on the whirlwind of distractions that plagued us in 2023, resulting in a lull in our creative pursuits. But fear not, for this year, we're reclaiming our focus and doubling down on our commitment to revitalize tired pieces and share our journey with you.  But... How are we going to do this?

  1. 52 Finished Facelifts: Our overarching goal for the year is to complete 52 stunning transformations. While ideally, we'd tackle one restyle per week, we recognize that some projects may require more time and attention. Therefore, our aim is to achieve 52 finished facelifts by the end of the year, with no official weekly target.

  2. Sharing Knowledge: We're passionate about sharing the "how-to" behind each project. Whether it's tips, tricks, or lessons learned, we want to inspire and empower you to embark on your own creative endeavors.

  3. Skill Development: We're not content with sticking to the familiar. This year, we're pushing ourselves to explore new techniques and step out of our comfort zone, all in the pursuit of personal and professional growth.

  1. Completion is Key: To count towards our tally, each item must be fully finished, ready to find its forever home.

  2. Unfinished Business: We're tackling new projects as well as UFOs (Unfinished Objects) head-on. We may even have some re-styles of our own restyles.

  3. Variety is the Spice of Life: From furniture to home decor, our projects span a range of mediums, ensuring each transformation is as unique as the next.  Furniture and Furnishings will be included in the facelift tally.

  4. One at a Time: To prevent stockpiling, if any projects jump into our car or find their way to the studio like a lost puppy, these pieces must become our immediate focus. It's time to tackle the backlog and reign in our collecting tendencies.

Challenges Ahead:
As we embark on this ambitious journey, we anticipate facing a few hurdles along the way:

  1. Distraction: Ah, the siren call of shiny new products and unfinished projects. We're all too familiar with the struggle of staying focused amidst a sea of creative possibilities. Can you relate? Share your experiences and let's navigate this challenge together.

  2. Work Commitments: Balancing our passion for furnishing with the demands of our day job won't always be easy. But with careful planning and dedication, we're confident we can strike the perfect harmony.

  3. Weather Woes: Mother Nature isn't always on our side, especially when it comes to outdoor painting projects. From scorching summers to chilly winters, we'll need to strategize and make the most of favorable conditions.

  4. The Lure of Laziness: Let's face it, sometimes the couch just seems more inviting than the workshop. But with your support and our determination, we'll keep procrastination at bay.

  5. The Unforeseen: There will surely be challenges beyond our control.  How we tackle those, will surely impact our ability to complete this challenge.
