OK y'all, winter has been plagued with health issues and other not goodness. But I'm determined to get on the house perfecting bandwagon again! I have a huge list that resides on my iPhone entitled "Quick Fixes". Let's be real, sometimes the "Quick Fixes" have the same speed as plate tectonics. In an effort to make things manageable, I've tried to choose 10 things to knock off the list first. They're not all the most important or the most grandiose things, I tried to choose a mix of difficult and not difficult, of evening and weekend projects.
10 Things for February:
3.) Work on a bed skirt. Notice that I didn't say "finish a bedskirt". Given the husband's feelings about bedskirts ("no bedskirt prevents crap from congregating under the bed" and "let's have one that just covers the boxspring but doesn't go to the floor") and my feelings about bedskirts ("that last idea sounds like the 80's midi-top of bedskirts?" and "please, let's get one") this task may be more about the collaborative design process than the actual sewing. I'll keep you posted.
4.) Finish stripping the window frame next to the front door. I got 14" of the paint stripped off with a heat gun and then stopped. Time to finish that sucker already.
8.) Make coasters. Currently we own an incomplete set of coasters left over from my bachelorette pad. Time to make some classy adult-like ones!
9.) Rearrange the girl alcove. A friend came over to the house for the first time and pointed out that with a little light and a little organization, the alcove in my bedroom that houses my little vanity and my hat storage could be really charming. Point taken.
10.) Clean, organize and hang some damn art in the craft room. It's time! I took some "before" pics for you on this one. Check it out:
The goal here is to deal with all of that AND do some additional organization. As well as get some of the art collection and/or photographs up on the wall. It's amazing how you move into a room and think "as soon as we're settled, I'll finish this room". Bam! Next thing you know, you've lived there two years and it still hasn't happened. The buck stops here, craft room.
OK, so that's my February. It's a short month, this might be a lot, we'll see! Y'all are responsible for holding me accountable, so commence yelling at me now!
