Yikes, it is week five! Want to know what I have done these past 5 weeks?
Click here to start at the beginning....
Only one week left to get my butt in gear!
I managed to paint the bookcases this week.
Here is a peek..
I am going about all of this backward, I should of painted the walls first, which was what I first intended. But when the possibility of us not living here come fall, I put that on hold
Well peeps, the lease gets signed tomorrow! So walls will be painted Friday. YES!
In the meantime, I have had some fun with gold leaf, unearthing family heirlooms to frame and a minor spray paint fiasco.
My mom's great aunt's needlework, love how the raw edges are showing.
My spray paint fiasco.... trying to paint it gold but wasn't the right paint. Will try brilliant paint...last resort, gold leaf.
And thrift store mirror that will get the midas touch!
AND my slipcovers for the dining room chairs is still set back...samples are on order from Tonic Living because all the local fabric stores have NOTHING. I shouldn't say nothing. One store, seemed to have doubled their prices in these past few months. Yes, doubled. I refuse to pay $40/meter for white linen.
The only other possible stores are on the other side of the river, which means a bridge and highway under construction to cross. If anyone knows Vancouver traffic, it can be a ^%$@#!
Pardon my French. I hate fighting traffic. Maybe early next week? This week I am busy chauffeuring kids to day camps, jobs and lifeguard training.
I doubt my 6 dining chairs will be slipcovered by next Wednesday.
BUT this is a challenge and not a contest. There is no prize so my goal was to makeover a room in 6 weeks but this is real life people.
Things happen, plans change.
I have enjoyed the challenge thus far....and the bonus I feel a kinship to all my fellow participants, we are all trying to makeover a space while dealing with daily life.
I also love the new friends and blogs that have become part of my daily read!
So peeps, the countdown is on.
One more week. 7 days.
See you in week 6! Fingers crossed that I get most of my list accomplished!
Please go visit my partners in crime. Go see if they are further ahead than I am...
