Busy Bee

19 Feb

Construction workers must be in awesome shape- demo is TIRING!  The good news is that the demo is almost done in the kitchen and bath.  Demo-ing everything AND the kitchen sink.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to chronicle this project for you guys without turning this blog into one all about the flip.  I’ve come up with the answer.  I’m going to give you weekly updates (I’m thinking on Thursdays or Fridays, any preference?) of everything that we did in the past week.  If I have a specific DIY project that I’m tackling, I’ll share that with you on another day.  So instead of talking about Clark everyday, you’ll get an average of 2 flip posts a week.  I can’t wait to show you what’s happened in the past week!!

In addition to my blood and sweat at Clark (no tears yet, and I hope to keep it that way) I’ve been chipping away at a few things here in our home… cuz apparently one ginormous project still isn’t enough for me, I have to do several little projects at the same time.  That’s just how I roll.

Remember how I VOWED to have dining room curtains before we dove into flipping?  We’ll I didn’t get them up before we closed, but they went up over the weekend.

The curtains are these from IKEA and the mercury glass finial curtain rods are these from Target.

I still have a nagging feeling that something’s not right in this room.  My gut says the table.  I can totally see a lighter, rectangle farmers table or butcher block table.  Hubby’s gut thinks my gut is wrong and doesn’t want a new table.  When will his gut learn that my gut has a better eye for design than his?  In addition to the table, I need to finish refinishing my chair collection in the basement.  These 2 that I refinished are the curvier ones and this room needs some rectilinear shapes for balance.  I also have a plan for new art for between the windows, so stay tuned for that.

Are you guys able to focus on one project?  Please tell me I’m not the only one with design ADD.

    I can’t focus on one project, either. I have a primed accent chair for our bedroom with new foam but no fabric on it yet, and just started getting spray primer for Laura’s new chair, when I am not even done with the other one…and I have a half painted wooden dresser in Jenny’s room. my DIY is ADD. I love that I am not the only one suffering from this syndrome! It is fun to see the Clark progress and I will look forward to the 2 posts each week (and all of your other projects!)
