PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at
So let me just say right up front that I'm a spaz when it comes to decorating projects.
I can't do just one project, or just one room at a time.
I can't just do all the painting, all the sewing, all the organizing from start to finish.
That's just not how I roll.
(living room got a new coat of paint, therefore furniture must be moved around. Ya know.)
So here is just a smidgen of the plethora of projects in the works.
Please pray for my family as they don't have a place to sit and can't find anything, including their mom/wife.
My poor dog thinks we're moving and hides on my bed dawn til dusk.
School Room/Office. Actually almost ready for the big reveal!
Sewed up a new shade...still needs some finishing touches though....
Organizing homeschool books on the shelves...
Gotta make labels for these...
Cra(p)ft Room. Not even close, but at least I'm getting started on the furniture. Finally.
Picked out and purchased wall paint and fabric too.
Dresser started as this as of this morning....
covered with citrusstrip crap and plastic so it won't dry out before I scrape the 3 layers of paint off..
See that there antique hutch back yonder? I did the drunk person technique on it today.
(Love those old details! It'll look marvey with my crafting/sewing stuff tucked inside.)
Master Bedroom. Getting a complete makeover. Again not quite ready for a reveal, but I'll show ya a few things I've been working on....The walls still need painted, and a couple more things painted/sewn.
Painted the nightstand next to it as well. Need to sew up the stool cover as well as the closet drapes...
This desk got a new paint job and I need to put these on...
Front Hall. Repainted, including trim. It was a mess, and I wanted it to match the office/schoolroom. The paint is an old Ralph Lauren color called Canvas Natural. LOVE it. Perfect warm neutral.
Other randomness. Anyone else throw yards of fabric around the house looking for that perfect spot?
(used some of this in my master bedroom for awhile, but it will now reside in the family room)
These beauties got repainted heirloom white. I'll show 'em to ya when I reveal the upstairs rec room.
(such an attractive chapel chair. Eegads.)
Played around with vignettes in my spare time. Remember the mirror?
It looked like this before:
and now it sits on my antique walnut dresser in my living/reading room.
Everyday I start popping around from painting to organizing to decorating to sewing. Keeps it interesting. My daughter is moving into a smaller place, so lots of stuff I'd given her came back, and I got inspired again. Plus I'm still cleaning out, paring down, weighing my likes and loves. :)
I think the school room will be done this week, and I'll do a full post on it. We start school in a couple weeks, so it needs to be ready to go.
