What are you working on 9/23?
Okay, I'm slacking this week!
What is everyone up to this week?
I haven't worked on much so far! :(
I dug in the shed and got out a few fall items. There is another box in there but I can't get to it and DH has been "too busy" to get in there, too. Most of the stuff I have had for YEARS (like way back in 2001 when I lived here at this forum!) and I still like some of it but I need to Prim them up a bit to make them go with my decor now.
I did research, looking for a few new fall items that I could make. I mostly want to find things to put on the porch. DH has been busy building his new tree stand that I call the "Lodge" so I have had a lot of scrap pieces of lumber. I think I'm making a few stacking blocks with fall sayings and words.
Oh, I made a new shower curtain last week and got it up.....I LOVE the new look! I finally decided to use a color other than blue as the main focus in that room. I have a terrible obsession with navy blue and especially if it pertains to checks or plaids! LOL
Before and After :)
Last weekend I finally made it into our Habitat for Humanity ReStore and I LOVED it! I found an old wooden solid door for $15. (DH found a Wagner Power Sprayer for $15 that he's definitely gotten his money's worth out of already! LOL) I have been looking for an old door for at least a year but couldn't found a good deal. I want DH to make me a headboard from it. I got two old posts for nothing out of an old barn that came from an old house stair railing. They aren't stained of painted and the door is so I think I'm going to paint the posts and distress everything. I can't wait!
...that reminds me...I need to take a picture of the other old post that I got from that barn. It's the corner post that goes at the bottom or on the landing of the stair way. It was painted white and the paint was chipping but chipping way past being just a little distressed. I painted it and rubbed stain on it last week and it's holding a plant in our bedroom now :)
