Because I can’t do anything halfway, I’ve decided on an “Abstract Forest” theme for my son’s bedroom. I plan on redoing it the last week of April, while he stays with my parents for a week. Of course I have a Pinterest board. I already knew one wall was going to be chalkboard paint, and his bed was going to be vaguely tent-shaped. But last night while we were waiting on the gallon of paint to finish my bed (need
Inspiration: Bed Frame & Headboard I did it!! Well, almost. And it wasn’t really me that did 90% of the work. It was this guy: I got a boyfriend, y’all. We had only been dating a couple months when he started this project with me. And it didn’t take long to reveal that I was pretty incompetent as a helper. He’s a saint. Plus he actually likes my dogs. And they love him. But back to the bed frame. This
I’m finally about to build a bed frame. I think. I’m pretty sure it’s gonna happen. My boyfriend is pretty motivated because he doesn’t want to sleep on the floor anymore when he stays over. lol! Any time I talk about the stuff I want to do around the house he’s like “But the bed frame is at the top of the list, right? I feel like that should be at the top of the list.” So we’re gonna
Day 6 – The Windows Read the full article here. I had someone pressure-wash my house, so I’m gonna say the exterior windows were handled. I did clean the interior glass of the ones in the common areas, and mine and Wade’s rooms. It feels like a pointless task considering how many animal noses and toddler hands are smeared over them, but I guess it should be done at least every once in awhile. Day 7 – The Walls Read
I don’t even have the original inspiration pinned anymore. That’s how long ago I started this nightmare of a project. It seemed like an awesome way to fill a nursery with art! I should’ve known I couldn’t follow through, though. *tragic, dramatic weeping* So the original people had some children’s book that was actually significant to both of them. They framed all the pages and hung them up and it was super cute. Instead of going with a book that
Day 1 – The Kitchen Read the full article here. Oh I really like the way they’re doing it now. Instead of just giving you a single project saying “this is what you must do today” they’re saying “If you’ve got all day, do this. If you’ve got 10 minutes, do this. If you only have 1 minute, do this.” So that’s cool. Of course, I don’t do anything even remotely close to when they said I should do it,
I signed up for the stupid Apartment Therapy Spring Cleaning…thing…again. I did exactly none of it last year. Maybe this year I will? Maybe? I mean, I doubt it. But whatever. There’s nothing I like more than signing up for newsletters that make me feel guilty for being the lazy SOB that I am. If you’d like to “participate” as well, here’s the link.
