A Quick Check In Before Working in the Garage

Just wanted to check in with everyone… The Kid and I have been busy starting a multitude of projects. The collection of furniture and projects is a never ending stream. I have a bug about the next “big one” – a project that will span a fair amount of time and cost more than most. It is a toss up between the master bedroom makeover or attempting to once more finish the attic space behind The Kid’s closet. Either way, both are slated to go done while I am taking a hiatus from work and have the time.

Today, we’re working on a couple of matching benches from head and foot boards. We also got started on my latest rescue, another five drawer dresser purchased at a local auction company. We also picked up a ton of paint chip cards, chose the color scheme for my master bedroom. Which one do you think matches best?photo 1

The Kid thinks the middle one on the right, I think the bottom on the left. I am going to leave these up for a few days, look at them in different lights.

I’ve also gotten a little further on my secret project… and it is still creeping out The Kid. πŸ™‚

We spent most of today, though, listing eBay auctions. I also spent some time up in my quilting room, finishing up the remainder of my quilt tops: matching the fronts with the backing material.I finished up the last of my denim quilts, but need to purchase some flannel for the backing. I love the combination of recycled denim and flannel – like wearing your favorite jeans and a flannel shirt. I just went through 16 yards of dark blue flannel getting five other quilts ready. Wow!

I go in cycles, it seems, where for days, sometimes weeks, working on the same sort of projects and then suddenly due to acquiring materials, I will switch to something else. And then that, will consume my time for a few weeks. The furniture that The Kid and I work on is really to fund the other projects, so that sort of goes on all the time. At least a little bit all the time.

Come back often for updates!
