Projects are back in full swing at our house and I can’t wait to share what we have been up to. That explains my lack of posting this week (and the fact that being back at work is kicking my butt in the time arena). So while we finish up stuff here, I have some random thoughts. Which I am going to attempt to string together in some coherent form. Here goes:
1. We learned a valuable lesson last week. Curtains really shrink when you wash them. Even if they are labeled as machine-washable.
I am pretty embarrassed it took us two years to actually wash them and not just lint roll them. Since they pooled on the ground previously, I assumed some shrinking would not be a big deal.
But now our curtains are waiting for a flood.
Well since the office is in the midst of a mini-makeover I guess we can add curtains to the list. Of course we could just lower the rods but I wish they were higher anyway and I am currently not digging the more traditional pattern. There was a rumor going around the house that I may have shrank them on purpose…..but that is untrue. It just was a
So now I am on the hunt for a more modern fabric in the same color family. So far nothing has popped out at me. I was so inspired by some Michael Kors greek key sheets I spied at Homegoods but they were tan and not black and I cannot find them in black anywhere. But other than that small color problem they were perfect. Any great ideas?
Speaking of curtains…..
#2 I listened to the majority and ordered white fabric for the drapes in the kitchen.
Ignore the fact it has taken my 10 months to get to it. (and the fact it is still on the bolt). But it is getting prewashed because I am planning on liking these drapes for awhile. I went with a linen blend because I liked the texture (and it was on sale…which is a bonus when you need 27 yards of something).
Speaking of never ending projects….
#3 We finally have glass shelves in our open cabinets….2 years later.
Now we just need to work on the glass in the doors. I would say stay-tuned but it may be awhile. I am enjoying getting the dishes off the counter and empty cabinet space. And how it looks much more finished. In case you were wondering I have absolutely no excuse to why it took this long to get them.
Speaking of……well…the kitchen??
#4 I picked a few tomatoes last night
Pizza sauce here we come! The two tomato plant are not doing well themselves because of some infestation I can’t figure out (and refuse to spray for) but luckily that does not seem to be affecting the actual tomatoes.
Told you I would find a away to tie it all together.
