Well that was a bad case of blogger/DIYers block. I’ve been focusing all my designing powers into the 9to5. I have a SUPER fun project that they’re actually letting me be the designer on (a first in my professional career!) for probably the BEST client ever (hint, their name rhymes with ‘oogle’). I wish I could gush to you ALL the details, but I shouldn’t.
This week, my DIY gave way to TCB (taking care of business) and I broke out Bernette, my trusty sewing machine and finally got to my heaping mending pile. I only have 2 pairs of pants (one Hubby’s and one mine) that still need hems fixed. Yay progress!
I also finally hung up the shed shelves that I mentioned here, but didn’t have time to take pictures before we needed to shove all our patio furniture and grill into it before the joke of a hurricane we had here. So those will come very soon, I promise!
Although I haven’t had much luck at tag sales recently, my mis-matched future dining room chair collection has grown. 2 weeks ago, I snagged this chair at an estate sale for $4. Don’t you just LOVE the orange velour?? So sexy.
and this past weekend, my parents found this chair for me at a tag sale for $3. Score!!
Handy Dad also was nice enough to put some glue on it for me so it’ll be nice and stable.
Side note- I plan to have an awesome work area in my basement one day like Handy Dad’s in the picture. … One day maybe my basement will be organized enough…HA. But I digress.
I also poked my head into Savers on Saturday (much like a Salvation Army or Goodwill). They had 2 chairs that I was considering, but I had the small car with me and couldn’t transport them. They’re having a huge sale on Labor Day, so if those chairs are still there, you bet they’ll be mine. I’m starting to get close to a full set! If you have no idea what ‘set’ I’m talking about, check out my plans here.
Did you get any projects done on this rotten weekend?
