In a Revamp Mood

Posted on May 27, 2008 - Filed Under Crafty |

I´ve been in a weird mood lately. Not so much interested in writing, but really into doing stuff with my hands. There are a lot of things that are really bugging me about the house and so I´ve decided to actually do something about them.

One of my projects is the boys´ room. I want to move Dante in with Dorian, but that means it´s probably a good idea to get that room organized a bit better. And if I´m going to do that, I should probably decorate first . . .

Anyway. The kids have this big unfinished wood dresser in their room and it´s just kind of ugly and lends nothing to the room. I´ve been meaning to paint it for eons and yesterday I sent Irving to finally bring me the paint. So, it´s going to be turquoise with multi-colored stars all over it. I think. I constantly change my mind on this. :)

In addition, Dorian has this little chair and folding table, also of unfinished wood, that look just awful. So since I have some paint . . . those are going to be redecorated, too.

Really, there are just so many projects to get done around here. Our windows need curtains, the boys need a toybox and Dorian has an old, ugly bookcase that could also use some paint. So, I guess I´ll be busy for the next while. :D Maybe it´s just my brain rebelling against so much online work . . . but at any rate, I´ve been spending my evenings crafting or sanding things to prepare for painting while Irving and I watch television. It´s a great way to spend some time away from the computer and it´s something that is very enjoyable.

Anyway. That´s my update for today. I´ll be posting pics as I finish things.

    Yes, it is nice to get away from the computer every once and a while, and do something with the hands… And, at the end of the day, you have something reall REALLY good to look at and admire…”I did that”!!!
