things are getting interesting
26 July 2011
things are shakin' at the homestead.
... garage was drywalled today.
... siding guys were putting up the soffits.
... there's siding in the front yard dirt.
... the basement ceiling is drywalled.
... trim-y looking things have arrived.
(must find out tomorrow what the round rods are ... to the best of my recollection there's nothing round in this house. other than me.)
... doors arrived.
... and rumor has it the cabinets will start to be set this week.
cabinets, people. this is gettin' REAL.
in case you haven't seen the month two album, the rest of the house has been drywalled, mudded, the ceilings have been knocked down, and i believe all has been primed.
in other interesting news ...
my mom was up for a leisurely 36 hour visit last weekend, and we took a trip to ikea ... she needed rugs, i needed lights. it was a win/win.
i picked up one of these lovelies (the small version):
it's for the arty room at the front of the house. a room that, according to the plan, will be painted a creamy, buttery color ...
(benjamin moore windham cream)
i had found this amazing hack of the light ...
and had plans to totally steal make my own version for over the craft table. where the rest of the room would go beyond that was still fuzzy, but then i saw this wallpaper ...
and then i found an amazing deal on craigslist for a vintage metal industrial shelf with 32 wire baskets. the shelf is painted red, the baskets are in great shape ... i have to have it.
it looks kinda like this ...
oh yeah. i could have fun with that.
so now my head is spinning: gold maskros? buttery walls with one amy butler wallpaper accent wall? red metal shelf with wire baskets?? hmmm ... much warmer than the rest of the house, but i'm kind of loving the idea of this room.
but before i get ahead of myself, i need to make sure all the other duckies are lined up nice and neat. can't have round posts in a square house, regardless of pretty wallpaper and wire baskets.
first things first.
