Now that the shop is up and running. I can get back to the list of ToDos that sit taunting me on my Pinterest boards. Sooo many grand ideas ~ so little time.
Sadly, I’m a prime candidate for “Nailed It!” comedic pics. As much as I’d like to say I’m ‘crafty’; I’m really not. I have the vision but lack the patience to complete it properly. More often than not, I’m left unsatisfied with the outcome. I’m the one that says, Welp it’s good enough. I think I like it better that way anyway. no. not really. I lied. It sucks.
First off, I need to say, I’m lucky to have my husband. When he’s on the home-project job it usually ends up over-built which is the opposite of me. He’s terrified of things falling apart for some reason. Anytime he’s built shelves, benches or tables he makes sure it passes the 240 lb.-hanging-man test. Ever heard of it? It’s a common expression in our home. Totally unnecessary if you ask me, but I guess I should be happy he’s a safety first kinda guy.
You might remember a couple of his projects from last summer. The bike rack and the garage mud room. This spring he was put on a new task. A swing bed for the front porch. He’s almost done with his part (sneak peak), it’s just waiting on me to sew a cover for the mattress, figure out the rug, pillows and blanket look I want. Then I promise a DIY post with all the details will soon follow. Here is one of the inspirational pics to get us started from HGTV …
Other things I’m dreaming of…
Front pots from Gilded Mint
Kitchen backsplash by South Shore Decorating Blog or this kitchen backsplash from Home Bunch And somehow adapt this look into my off-the-kitchen powder room from South Shore Decorating
I need to figure out how to make my front room look more like this space from Classic Chic Home
Obviously, I have lots of home projects on my list. And this doesn’t even touch our bedrooms that need special attention as well. Wowza, decorating just never ends, does it?
What’s on your project wish list?
