This past week has been full of projects! We have been fixing things around the house, and the largest of these undertakings has been to repair the front entry way. It took several days of caulking, priming, and painting for it to be done, but I’m quite pleased with the end result! That being said, this project has sapped me of most of my energy and willpower to do much of anything else.
I did manage to finally finish a bankers chair that I had been working on for the past year, and I restored a cool frame I found in the attic, and turned it into a chalkboard. I am drawn to antiques. I have been surrounded with them my whole life. My Mother is an avid collector. To me, its fascinating to think of the stories the pieces could tell if they could. I will almost always try to salvage an old piece of furniture or decor before buying something new. I’m a total novice when it comes to refinishing stuff though. I’m not really thrilled with the chair, but I can identify where I went wrong. I also like the idea of my chalkboard, but I think the quality of the chalkboard paint I had was sub-par. But, its all progress in a sense.
The other venture I have been taking on , has been to try and find a planner that I like. I am a major write it down and make a list kind of person, and have had major success with Lara Casey’s Powersheets. I would really like to add some other features to really make it work for me. I cant seem to find a pre-made planner system that has everything I want in it though. I’m trying to design my own, with no such luck. Do you have a planner you really like?
I’ve also been playing a lot of the remastered Twilight Princess for the Wii-U. I was so thrilled to find out they were remaking the game. I never got to play much of it originally, because i was so atrocious with the Wii’s controls. I’m really enjoying it so far! I’m still in the beginning, I just got to Lake Hylia.
Sorry this post is pretty lacking. I do have several fun projects in the works for this week and next week though! I’m making some linen envelopes that I’m excited to share, and I’m doing my take on some Un-paper towels! Be sure to check back!
