Sometimes I bite off way more than I can chew. I have all of these ideas, but no time for the execution. That darn day job really eats into my time.
Remember the front hallway from last winter? We got as far as ripping off the carpet and I meant to get it painted before spring, but the opportunity to participate in Junk Bonanza came up, and it got pushed to the bottom of the list.
Then, I had a brilliant plan to turn the summerhouse into a furniture photo studio. I was optimistic and thought I could have it done before my Carriage House Sale. As if. Instead I barely got the furniture out of there and cleaned up to sell. It’s sitting there vacant at the moment waiting for a paint job.
I’m also debating how to deal with that rear wall. The plan, as you may remember, is to turn this into a furniture photo studio. That back wall will be the backdrop. Do I create a fake solid wall back there? Do I remove the window and create a real solid wall back there? Do I devise multiple interchangeable backdrops? Do I paint the floor, or leave it bare wood and use various rugs in my photos? So many possibilities.
Then there is this dresser that my friend Cathy nabbed for me. FREE. Needs a lot of work!
I am planning to strip it because I really want to give it a MMSMP chippy finish, and I don’t want the current horrid color to show through. I have no idea if it will have been worth so much effort, but aren’t those knobs pretty darling? I’d love to paint this one red, but since my first red dresser still hasn’t sold after 9 months I’m hesitant to do any more red.
I also want to revamp this cupboard that was in the summerhouse.
There is a bit of a story behind this guy, I’ll share it with you when I post the before & after. But for now, just know I’m thinking of adding some vintage wallpaper and trying to make the top look a little less fresh.
So there you have it. So many projects, so little time. I hope to get a few things done this week, so I better get crackin’!
