Happy friday! we’re learning about magnets in physics and honestly i can memorize the formulas but i’m pretty confused as to what exactly a magnet is, which is leading to all sorts of existential questions
Sweeeeet. preliminary work station for the vacuum is complete! i’m sure i’ll add stuff over time, but for now i have a place to hang hoses, the tools i use most commonly with the vacuum, and i cleared up a small area where these tools sat which will be reappropriated to either a sharpening staton for hand tools or a charging station since it’s right under the drill/battery shelf i built a while back. #woodworking#festool#makemagazine#maker#iliketomakestuff#thedustylife#organization
I’m almost done cleaning and reorganizing my paint brushes by size! 💙
tips: 1️⃣wash brushes with warm water and hand soap after every use. 2️⃣make sure to clean between the bristles to keep them soft and flexible. 3️⃣try to avoid getting paint around the ferrule. 4️⃣don’t vertically rest your brushes in water because it can ruin the shape and spread the bristles.
The last photo of our storage area. this is just a few shelves of some of our miscellaneous storage. one of the ideas i share during my organization seminars is the idea of "fancy up your mess." it's mainly the thought that when a particular mess is bothering you, but you don't have the time right then to completely clean it up, try making it look as nice as possible until you can get to it. you will feel much better about it in the meantime.
i feel the same way about storage and closets and well, most things in the home where possible. when something is going to find it's home on a particular shelf or area, making it look as fancy and lovely as possible makes all the difference when you see it multiple times a month, week or day.
Does anyone else just get really tired from sitting at a desk all day, trying to study? sometimes a change in environment is good ie. studying on the floor for me 😅 i find it much comfier than being stuck in a chair ✨
