Welcome Back, my hommies!
It’s Week 4 of the 6 Week Challenge! Hosted by Calling It Home and man, it’s getting good up in ‘der!
You still got my back, right? ‘Cause I could really use it. This week was a literal back-breaker.
I have been hunchbacked, twisty-backed and achy-breaky aaaalllllll week long. On Sunday night, my back died… at least that’s what it feels like. I’m either turing one hundred or I may just have too many children. Hmmm…. tough call, as I clean up the 3rd cup of spilled milk today. Some days there’s just a lot of spilled milk.
And some weeks, you just grin and hope that you’ll have the strength to fight another day. With that in mind, I did my best (I swear!) to take it easy so that I can see you at the finish line.
Luckily, I was able to get my tail in gear last week and actually get some things checked off the list. Phew!
The shelves are up and now I’m working on the styling part.
I have a few pieces of art that probably won’t stay like this but you can get a peeksie!
The I took a few red metallic frames I had and spray painted them a dull gold.
As for the other frames, well, I’m still working on that. These shelves are 10ft and 7ft long, so I still need a bunch of art. Fingers crossed I can find the perfect pieces!
I also started to deconstruct my upholstery project….remember these?
I bought one of these for the back of the couch. I hate when the cord digs into the back!
I’m considering these from House of Hardware for my bar area. Have any of you actually seen and touched them?
Now for a little help, please. Which do you think looks better?
A sectional where most of the pillows are matching on both sides
A sectional where the pillows relate, but are all different?
I need to get going on sewing some pillows, but I just can’t decide if I want to keep them more neutral since there is a lot going on with the shelves or do I want to do a bunch of different fabrics. Help please!
I am so loving these, that I think I may have to make some yarn tassels!
I think that might be it for this week!!
Now let’s see where we stand…
1. Build two gallery shelves for the focal wall. 2. Add a new rug 3. Do some alterations to my slip covers
4. Make new pillow covers, But first, decide on fabric
5. Add a sconce/light, perhaps??
Side tables and bar stools – I think I will fix up the ones I have for now.
7. Make all the flat areas interesting and oh, so pretty
8. Find, make, steal some art
9. Revamp woven wall art
10. Reupholster chairs…say, what?!
Making progress, but this week I’ve gotta start making some major leaps! Wish me luck!!
Happy Creating! Tootles, Jessica
