Forty Days of Lent: Fifteen Minute Project – A Table



I decided to play along with Beth Woolsey’s 40 Days of Lent: 15 Minute Projects. My intention is to do at least five of these 15-minute purges throughout Lent, in the hopes that our home will be less messy and my mind feel less cluttered!

Maceo’s room doubles as my craft area — he’s too young to care! And the craft table and shelves, of course, become the dumping ground for anything that doesn’t fit in his closet or that I don’t know what to do with just right at that moment.


Truth told, this was more of a 25-minute project than a 15-minute one. The purging and neatening took a wee bit longer than 15 minutes. I then spent another 15 minutes after the tidy up framing those four little pictures you see on the wall below — the frames have been sitting on said craft table for at least two years, waiting! It feels SO good to get this done!

  1. That looks fantastic! I love the idea of these little 15 minute projects… but I just can’t do it this year. This whole having two kids thing takes up a lot of time!

    • Now that Maceo is hurtling towards three, Sarah, I have hope that it gets easier with two kids. I’m starting to get bits of time to myself — though it is a bit of two steps forward, one step back!

  3. The frames look so nice! That space is small, but mighty.
