…not that I’ve felt dead for the past month, I just haven’t felt like myself.
Nauseous, tired, no desire to blog or craft or cook do anything remotely creative.
I was basically doing the minimum needed to get by.
But I’m in my 2nd trimester, baby is a the size of a lemon, and I’m feeling good!!
So good that I have returned back to my old tricks… taking on too many projects at one time!
Here’s what I have going on right now:
8 sanded cabinet doors – awaiting to be patched, primed & painted
2 metal cube end tables – in the garage, covered in peeling paint after I applied a chemical stripper to them.
2 cane-back chairs – cane removed, in same condition as the end tables
1 coffee table – primed and 1/2 taped off in a herring bone pattern, awaiting painting or better idea
And while I could be focusing all my energies on finishing one of these projects, I have instead decided to go fabric shopping!
And I even came home with some samples –
after finally getting through to the sales lady that I was NOT interested in looking at any more silk tapestry, $75-per-yard fabric.
Yes, that is what she showed me after I explained to her that I wanted some child-resistant, casual, graphic print fabric.
Eventually we made it to the outdoor/indoor fabric section- you know, the kind of fabric that could be taken outside and hosed down, that’s what we need in this house :)
And I’d also like to make some throw pillows for the couches. But I don’t want to go too matchy-matchy or formal…
In the store, they looked like great options.
But now that I have them in the room, I don’t know….
too formal, too blue, too ??
just not what I was going for.
The look I’m going for is: Traditional Living meets Artist Loft meets Minimalistic with a touch of Southern Living and a dash of French country.
Is that too much to ask for?!
Ok, so what’ya think? Love to hear if you love them, hate them, or have a better idea!
(and it’s good to be back in “normalville” :)
