Calculate how much paint and fabric you need, double check your stock of other supplies at home and then go, go, go. This is the perfect time to really dig into the marketplace and start making those purchasing decisions, but if you don’t see what you are looking for this weekend, don’t feel pressured into accepting second-best – just keep looking. Nothing adds to the success potential of a project more that starting off prepared. You still have plenty of time. Do your best to gather the all the “project” items such as paint, tools and supplies on your list by Monday. Knowing that you have everything you need before you settle in to work makes a huge difference.
