Sometimes I wonder what it must feel like to have no projects...would that be called contentment?
I don't think there is such a thing as no projects with a home built in 1900, but isn't that why we bought an old home...because we love projects...you don't need to answer that :)
Last week I swore up and down our first floor was sinking, falling, collapsing...maybe I am over exaggerating. I moved the couch and felt the floor was slopped. I even had Tony buying into the idea. We traveled to Lowe's to price metal posts....thanks to DAD for bringing us back down to earth....a calming force. Happy to report we are not collapsing.
Each of the below projects deserve their own post, but for now here is a snippet of what is going on....
Tony makes the cakes out of peanut butter and cornmeal for the birds. They love them.
Tony and my dad started to work on the back of the garage. It use to be the stable, which housed a horse named Ginger. No horses for us. We hope to use it as a recreational room. Instead of traditional siding, we are going to side it with a vinyl board and batten.
After opening up the wall, we decided long term we need to add windows or french doors to this back wall.
We are working extra hard to get ready for November 1st, when we open RelativelyUnique2 at the Olde Factory.
I started working on these chairs. They will not be black and they will have new fabric. I think Blue wanted to make sure you didn't forget about him...or he likes to get his picture taken...or both!
I told Sarah we could make her a costume out of a blue homecoming dress we got for $5.00 at the Thrift Shop. It is still a work in progress....I have until the 31st to finish....it is good to have deadlines.
The kids used the Cricut to decorate the white plates in their bathroom. They had total say in the design.
Their deal....I think they did pretty good!
And this is the only completed project in this post!
Family Room Curtains:
This curtain rod fell down...maybe a month or two ago. It's falling inspired us to paint the family room. I know, how can that cause inspiration...who knows...I think there might be something wrong with us. The room is painted but no curtains....until tonight!!!
We don't believe in ladders....do you?
And since Tony is going to kill me for posting the above picture....
I'll share a photo he took last week...
