My girls are home! They had so much fun spending a few days with Grandma and Grandpa. I accomplished a lot while I was home alone with no interruptions but I was very glad to have my girlies come home.
Here is what I said I would do while they are gone – clean my house (check) fit a bride for here wedding dress (check) Create some things for an event next week (sort of check – I sewed up one thing) write some blog posts (nada) plan for a vaca that is coming up (nope, didn’t get to that) ship a pouffe to a client (check and check, check, check) oranize more of my sewing room (half-check) Do some shopping, (check,check) Enjoy a couple dinners with my hubby (CHECK!) Read a book (check)
I’d say I did pretty well with my list. I won’t bore you with the stuff that needs done that I didn’t get to.
Instead I’ll show you a few before pics of the ongoing organization project.
Poor lighting I know. These are before pics. HUGE armoire. It’s an old tv armoir so it needed a bit of ‘remodeling’ which my hubby very willingly did for me. Since I only paid $65 for this he was happy to fix it up to make it more workable for the fabric storage I plan to use it for.
I mixed up some milk paint the minute that armoire was ready for paint. I wasn’t keeping that orange oak around any longer than necessary. I haven’t taken any ‘after’ pics yet because the room is still a bit chaotic and I’m not done organizing. I had to take a break from organizing to get some projects done.
These are the new knobs I put on the cupboard. I bought them at hobby lobby and yes, I know they don’t match. Mismatched was the intended result 😀
Oh yes, a winner has been chosen for the Ramsign giveaway on my blog last week. Sarah S. is the winner and has been contacted! Congratulations Sarah!
