Day 7: Tuesday, October 8
Assignment: Special project
This is where it gets really fun: it's Special Project time! Your special project is about improving the functionality of your space, with a slight eye toward the aesthetic. I've seen people repaint their kitchens, strip wallpaper, replace faucets, and create new systems for storing knives or compost. Some Special Projects take an hour or two, some take longer — have you ever painted a small room and thought you could finish in one evening?! — so just get started today, don't stay up all night.
