Tying Up Loose Ends
August 25, 2014
As our annual pig roast draws near, I am rushing to complete as many projects as I can. The humidity is killing many of my painting projects so we’ll see how much I can get done.
Sunday afternoon I wrangled Dan into helping me finish two projects that I’ve been sitting on for months. Literally months….like since April…oh my…
Lucky the painting had been done for write a while, before this super humid weather rolled in. I just needed help screwing the hooks in then hanging them on the wall. I’m not a very good DIYer yet because I can’t hang pictures straight to save my life. My hubby saves me on this.
First up, the laundry room. I’ve been wanting a hook for my ironing board since we moved in, but I struggled to find a hook wide enough for the legs of my ironing board. Young House Love’s target line saved the day! I mounted their hooks to my own board and hung out on the wall. Tada!
My laundry room is complete (for now! I’ve got more ideas up my sleeve!)!
This room needs a proper reveal post now that it has reached a mostly finished stage…another day, my friends.
Next up, the nursery! I’ve been wanting to fill in the empty wall next to my nursing chair and it took me almost a year to make my idea turn into reality.
Middle of the night sickness made us realize how important a clock is in a nursery…you do NOT want to lay that baby down until the Tylenol has had a chance to kick in. Am I right?
(I have some patching to do too…never mind the screw holes! Those will be covered soon…famous last words!)
So here’s my to do list from a few posts ago…making progress!
- Stain, poly, and hang the shelves in the basement bathroom
Prime and paint the trim around the new windows that we installed a few weeks ago (by “we” I mean the professionals!)
- Paint the remaining wood windows throughout the house
Paint the trim around the front door Super glue the cup pulls to the mock drawers under the kitchen sink (I’m thinking super glue will work…not entirely sure, gorilla glue didn’t)
- Touch up the paint on the kitchen cabinets
Finish the clock/picture clip collage for Jackie’s room (not a good description…I’ll show you when it’s finished) Finish and hang the hook for my ironing board Raise the pictures next to the dryer in the laundry room
The boards have made their way to the garage for sanding!
Done! Haven’t blogged about it though….it’s really not too exciting.
Done! Need to post about this…
Done! Super glue for the win!
Wow, crossing all that off feels so good! I hadn’t realized how much I’d gotten done. Woot!
What have you crossed off your to do list?
