Back in the Bathroom…

Why am I such a terrible procrastinator?! It’s been over three-months since I started this simple pine box for storing bathroom cleaning equipment yet, this is hardly the first instance in which I’ve been known to start one project and to then ignore it for many, many months (there’s still an unfinished fruit bowl in my workshop, somewhere!).

There are still a couple of on-going projects that I need to finish first but, I’m also feeling slightly inspired to get going again, by the mess that accumulates on the window cill of my bathroom:
