When you're out bargain hunting and a project presents itself — how do you rationalize your time and the possibility of its completion sometime this decade? I am already loaded down with a garage full of "projects I'll get to someday," but when I came across this pair of chairs at a local oddities store I had to have them. Someday they would be pink and white and possibly gold — but when would I have the time?

It's easy to say that you'll just stay up late, or not watch TV all week to get a project done, but if you're already doing those things for other reasons, how do you find time to tackle a DIY project? Are you willing to pick up something to work on knowing you may not come across it later when time allows? Do you say no and spend a little extra when the time is right to get what you want?

How do you find time in your schedule to do a little diy and how do you know when to say no to a project because you're just too busy. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
