Those wooden curtain valences I posted about last night were super simple, but oh em gee, did it take me foreverrrrrrrr. It was one of those projects I only got to work on a few minutes a night for like, four days. To be fair to myself, those were the days over Easter Weekend, which was busy, but it still took too long The problem with this? Feels like I’m slacking off and stretching out projects that should only take a short amount of time. There’s not a lot if time left in the contest, I don’t have time to stretch out my projects or anything…not even…something you stretch a lot……..pantyhose? (Do you see how crazy this is making me?!)…..
There are only 29 days left until the contest closes (or whatever, because no, lol, I haven’t double checked that date, even though I keep talking about how I will . …. -_- )
I guess the past few nights I’ve been actually consciously aware of this fact, so I’ve been working harder than a beaver building a dam in the prairies. (that would be hard work, no?) Here are my efforts;
I glued everything into the front hall. I did end up moving the wall, which ripped up my floor, (of course), so I used a rug to cover up the ugliness.
Since I had moved the wall, I had to play around with the layout of the living room…
I decided to go with the last option. I like the idea of having the pictures hanging behind the couch, and this will make it possible! (I wonder if I had never moved the wall, if I would have kept the couch against the half wall? and then where would I have put the pictures? hmm).
I put together another chair kit from By Sharon Miniatures.
This one is white and will end up with either the sewing machine in the bedroom;
..or it may end up with the secretary table…. I haven’t figured that out yet. I had it in the dining rom because I have been wondering if perhaps the dark furniture in there is too dark? with the dark floors, and then these light flowery curtians? Here is a comparison;
As a reminder here is the dark furniture, in that room;
I also painted the doorknobs on all the doors;
no, really, it was thatexciting. lol.
I’m sure it doesn’t look like much, but this actually took me about 3 hours to do!!! I’m getting much closer to finishing what I’d like to have finished for the contest ends, and that is a satisfying feeling in itself!
Expect updates tomorrow! !
P.s. there are actually now only 28 days left because I started this post in the afternoon and it’s now 1:24 am and I’m just finishing it as I lay in bed. I have lotsmore finished from tonight and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
