Nothin’ like waiting all off-season to get wrecked on the 2nd lap. I can’t even imagine the disappointment for the team. :(
Anyone else watch the Daytona 500 last night? Or, just judge me for the habit? :)
And I move on…
Do you ever feel like you’re working on so many things but not really accomplishing anything?
That is where I am right now.
So, I actually woke up thinking “I don’t have anything to blog about today”, but then I realized I had too many things…just not fun reveals. Boy, do I love the satisfaction of a finished project.
But, I’m surrounded by the confusion of multiple unfinished projects.
Well, beyond taking it out of the Jeep, nothing’s really happened to her. I have a few ideas…I’m thinking of flipping her horizontal and making her into a kind of inspiration/message to myself board. There are 4 glass segments, and unbelievably, none of them are broken. Maybe painting one with chalkboard paint, one with magnetic paint…then what for the others? Cork board, paint the back of the glass and use a dry erase marker for project notes?? Would it be too big?
Ack. I can’t seem to fully picture it…so I haven’t even started. Even though I need to do tons of prep to the door itself. I feel like she just hasn’t quite spoken to me yet.
Unlike this guy.
That plywood above the tv is now black and horizontal. So, here’s my idea…the end result is that it will say LIFE in all caps, white lettering. But, the letters L-I-F-E will be made up of small written words of memories in our life that form the shape of the letter. Make sense?
Have you done it? Seen it done? If so, please post it on my facebook page, I’d love to see it.
I’ve realized I need a white paint pen to really make this look right. Lucky for me I have a trip to the states planned soon, in case I don’t come across a paint pen here.
And I thought I had a really good idea for this guy.
A coffee table! Yeah, I really love the idea. It would be another pretty, coastal accent in our room…maybe creating a cohesive look I can work around with our couch update…oh yeah, haven’t made any progress on that either.
How’s that for a little more direction around our breadbox, Dana? :)
Next step here is to
tell husband what I did finish painting the couches. I think I’m only going to paint the fabric on the frame part of the couch…then I think I’ll dye the fabric on the cushions. What do you think of that idea? Too much of a risk they won’t exactly match? It’s black, so black is black, right?!? And then, how to work black couches into the look of the room…
…but, back to the coffee table. Here’s my thought…the board is 16 feet long. Make a coffee table 3 feet long and the width of 3 or 4 boards…so that takes up 9-12 feet of the board. And I would use the remaining for “trim” detail…hard for me to explain since I don’t really now what I’m talking about. :)
Well, to call them plans is an insult to the architects out there, but it’s a totally-not-to-scale-drawing-with-numbers-in-the-shape-of-a-small-table. Oh, the paper in the background…that’s my list of life memories for the black plywood.
Anyway, the coffee table…I love the look I have visualized in my head of what the coffee table would become…but just can’t seem to figure it out on paper. I’ve got to the point where I can make it, but would need another piece of wood for the bottom shelf. Should I just make it and leave it without a bottom shelf until I find one? Or should I continue to let it, in all of it’s 16 foot longness, take up all of the chairs on our patio?
Shoved to a far corner, stacked with randomness that used to be in it or on it…including my diy photo holders and complete with dust circles around where our wine glasses used to be. Awesome, I know. :/
When I saw it I immediately thought, if I could add doors to my
pathetic bookcase it would make a huge difference. And, what if I could make my doors out of…PALLETS!?!
No further progress on that thought. Have you made pallet doors before? Or, added doors to a cabinet that didn’t originally have them? Have any suggestions, tips, words of caution?
And, of course, that still leaves me having made no progress on the bottomless hutch because she just hasn’t spoken to me. Or maybe she has, but I’ve got her shoved so far away I can’t hear. :/
I definitely take for granted that I have unlimited access to sea glass. All of it is from this island over the last two years. It is on display in the clear glass vessel…for lack of ideas on what else to do with it. Hence, the driftwood turned decor. I was thinking maybe-somehow word art in sea glass on the driftwood. We’ll add the idea to the list of “in the conception stage” projects. Sigh.
But, after she saw my stash Zoe knew exactly what to do with hers, you need to go check it out at Creative in Chicago. I love the way she decided to separate the colors, I tell you, that girl is creative…and in Chicago. Perfect name choice Zoe!! :)
So, where does that leave me? I admitted here my little mind flow issue. It seems as though I am stuck with all of these ideas and just no action.
Can’t you just help a girl out? ;)
What should I do? What should I tackle first? What plans are just silly? What random projects do you have lying around just asking to be tackled?
And…did you see we’re having a party? Find out the scoop here.
