Welcome to this week’s Fall In Love (F.I.L.) linky party!
I am currently up a creek. I have no fewer than five fabulous home improvement projects in various stages of completion. Did you get that? Various stages of completion versus completed.
First up, I am still in the midst of unpacking the 8 million boxes of stuff I brought home from my dear mom and dad’s home. One thing that I pulled out of my brother’s “to be trashed” pile was this awesome paddle from a long departed row boat.
I knew instantly what I would do with it: fill in the horizontal space above Sweet Boy’s closet. Planes, trains, automobiles and now…boats. But how to hang the paddle in a cute and cheap manner has escaped me. I am still searching for a solution. Ideas? Anyone? Anybody? Bueller?
I also began decorating my front porch for fall. Then I had to stop because the temperature in Phoenix decided to rise again and real pumpkins don’t like 105 degree weather. For the record, neither do I.
Ditto for all the mum’s and zinnia’s I just planted that will now probably die. :(
The slipcover project I told you about last Friday still looks the same as I wait for a special upholstery foot for my sewing machine. It’s back ordered 3 ~ 5 weeks.
While I was waiting I gave some dated tv trays a makeover. The finished trays cried out for a coat of wax. My search had me at Lowe’s, Home Depot and Wal Mart but I struck out. I could find “natural~ for light wood” and “dark ~ for dark wood” but not a single can of “clear wax for painted furniture” could be found. Where is Mr. Miyagi when you need him?
Then there is all kinds of crazy organizational goodness lurking behind this seemingly average medicine cabinet mirror. But, I am having some issues that I don’t want to “label” at this time. (hee hee)
So instead, let’s see what you’ve done this week.
