While waiting for coats of paint to dry I worked on the new drapes for the Living room. After cutting each panel in half lengthwise and hemming I added tabs to the back of the panels
Maybe a bit easier to see the tabs in this photo. The drapes look pleated using this trick but sew much easier to do than traditional pleating
First wall is done, everything back in place, and the new curtains are hung. It took longer to load and unload the curio cabinet than it did to paint the room! Ha BTW I HATE the curio cabinet but hubby had it custom made when he was working in Indonesia so I can't put it to the curb :(
Now that the sun has gone down for the day I have called it quits in the living room. Trying to paint with just lamps is for the birds, no need to strain my eyes as well as the muscles! The process will be slow but sure for the next few days as I have Kara tomorrow along will all three toddlers on Friday. I have high hopes that I can do a little painting in the late afternoon once the house is cleared of the rug rats. Tonight's project is to clean up the mess I have made all over the downstairs before little hands arrive in the morning. Hope to sort the pictures I have taken down as well, I know many if not most won't work in the new room. sigh... I have an idea in my head for a collage above the sofa I want to do for hubby but I need to work the numbers, right now it seems to be costly.
Anyone else crazy enough to try and squeeze in home improvements this close to the holiday season? What the heck was I thinking?
