So we are back at Wednesday day again, half way through the challenge! I am feeling the pressure and not much was accomplished on the homefront this week. Company from Europe was over, mixed in with bike racing and a family birthday left for little time on the decorating front.
I am feeling a bit unmotivated too, not because I don't want to but because we are renting and our landlords are being a bit unclear as to whether they will re-sign a lease. It is up Sept. 1.
Feeling a bit crummy and anxious about it all.
They are sort of talking about selling the house, but with my husband's recent job loss I am not sure we are in the position to be buying.....at least I don't think they will sell it to us what we would like to pay.
Housing in the Vancouver area is ridiculously overpriced.
So that being said, painting walls might not be happening unless we know for sure we are "safe" for another year. So my zhushing of the space will be kept to what I can take with me. So until I know for sure, the roman blinds and new drapes are also on the chopping block. But I will re-vamp the hardware!
I did manage to whip up a pillow addition to the space. You may have seen one like this in my son's room but this one has a slight twist, the trim is black velvet.
I did cut out fabric to make a another pillow but didn't get around to sewing.
I am hoping I can figure out yardage for the slipcovers for the dining chairs and get working on that when my company leaves tomorrow!
Fingers crossed I am not going to be house hunting!
