Progress at the Workshop September 27, 2012
I’ve risen up from the blog underworld. That’s the place you go, when you haven’t blogged in a few days. Trust me I have not been sitting idol.
One exciting development, is that I completed a drapery (woo-hoo!) panel and love how it turned out! I made this with painters drop cloth and velvet. One more two go!
The other development that really makes me happy, is that my old shutters will fit perfectly on the walls, between the picture rail and the baseboard. I have enough to install another section on the other side of the room, I think. I’m looking for anything I can do, to add texture and interest to a pretty sterile space. I was going to whitewash the shutters and then I decided to just to clean and oil them. This is not going to be your typical shabby chic, Frenchy antique shop! I’m still not sure exactly what it will turn out to be, but It’s fun seeing it all develop.
Pretty exciting, right? A nearby antique shop was broken into recently and a video store was held up at gunpoint the other day! I’m not planning on shooting back, but we will get a nice photo of whoever walks through the door! If you know any bad guys, spread the word! Ha!
My daughter, in college, told me she needed some’s supplies from Target, so I made a visit this afternoon. As I was getting everything on my care package list, I couldn’t just pass by the fun home decor department. They had a new designer on the shelf who I wasn’t familiar with, but there were some very nice looking accessories!
Well, chickadee’s, that’s what’s going on in my neck of the woods. What’s happening with you?
