The first home project is to re-do and organize my craftroom. I have been boxing things up and taking them to the study so I can bring in the cabinet that I bought to put in the craftroom. I decided to wait until I get it inside before I put the top on it to make it lighter. Last night my daughter and her friend helped me to get it inside. I was a little worried because there were several corners to turn to get it to the back of the house. Now that it is in, I'm going to put the plywood on top and then tile it. Yep, I said tile it. No, I've never done that before. But I have several tutorials on it and I feel confident that I can do it (which is probably my FIRST mistake!). I'm going to build a shelf inside it and then I need to build 2 drawers. I have a neat idea for drawer pulls that I'll share later.
After I get my craftroom finished, I plan to put bookshelves in my study. I had originally built some bookshelves in a former house, but this time I'm taking the easy and
When those 2 rooms are finished, then I'm going to do some much needed sewing that I have put off because, once again, I've been working on projects for the booth. I want to make some little curtains for my kitchen and a valance for my bedroom.
You know, I have tried and tried, but for the life of me, I can't remember what I did before I started junkin and selling. Really! I must have done SOMETHING with my time, but I can't remember what it was!! It looks as though I just don't care about my house at all! This couldn't be further from the truth. I have had the nesting instinct from a very young age. I love my home and decorating it. I just haven't done anything in a long time.
So anyway, here are some pix of the latest projects that I finished and put in the booth.
This is a "before" picture of a little footstool before I recovered it.
And this is after getting recovered in vintage chenille.
This used to be a cabinet door. Now, it's a message board.
The following pix are some of the booth that I took on Sunday afternoon after I finished fluffing.
