Remember all the projects we have on our 2011 goal list? Well we made a little progress.
Step Forward #1: Hanging something in our upstairs hall
We framed the plans from our house and hung them in the hall. We wanted to get them professionally framed but then realized it would cost us hundreds of dollars. Instead, we picked up to large frames one sale from JoAnn’s ($25 each). It looks pretty good.
Step Forward #2: Curtains for the Bandroom (craft/project for February)
Micah’s been asking me to put some curtains up in the bandroom for months. I finally got around to doing it. They aren’t super nice but they get the job done enough for me to check them off my to do list.
We had some scrap fabric from various projects so we just needed a bit of grey to complete the project.
Leap backwards: Getting the chair recovered.
We found someone who turned out to be a complete flake. We set up 4 different times to meet and each time she didn’t show and didn’t even have the decency to call or email before the scheduled time to say she wasn’t going to make it. Awesome. We put out a few more feelers and hope we can still make this happen. Sometimes people on Craigslist is awesome and sometimes it SUCKS!
Anyone else make any progress or had any recent house project setbacks?
