I would LOVE to someday transform our back shed into an art studio with lots of natural light! [A backyard painting studio in Williamsburg. (this is a good idea: a small shed with windows and french doors for walls to let in light)]
Chore baskets - This is a great trick for kids. Write directions on the front of the basket and let them choose which task they want to do. or if multiple kids, they take a different basket every week and do ALL the chores listed.
