Did everyone have a good weekend? I did. Still picking splinters out of my hands from my baby barn door project. If you’ve followed me on Facebook, you’ll know I made great progress with that endeavor. In fact, the doors are all done. What isn’t done, is priming/painting the nook cubbies. So once that is stomped out, we can proceed with the hanging.
If you didn’t know, October is a big month for Green Meadow Manor. We moved our belongings on HALLOWEEN last year. It made for a very
interesting (who am I kidding) crappy moving experience. (There was literally, no other choice. A post about that cluster will soon appear on GMM.) So we’re coming up on our year mark of living in our house. This month the festivities will include rolling out a home tour for you, and a series of before and after pictures.
Here’s what else needs to be done this month:
- Finishing touches on the nook
-Hang the barn doors
-Install bead board & paint it
-Hang new light fixture
-Make the “no-sew” cushion and pillows
- Sew Curtains for the basement family room
To jog your mem’ry… here is the window in need of dressing:
I have already concluded the curtains are going to contain burlap. The color ties in with the couch, and the texture ties in with the chair. It will provide a nice light contrast from the Urbane Bronze walls. But instead of straight burlap top to bottom, I’m mulling over the idea of color blocking them. A medium-light gray on bottom… and possibly on the top. What do you think? IS THAT AN AWFUL IDEA? Stop me now if the answer is yes. I would hate for my beloved basement to look like a fudge puddle.
Imagine my curtains like this, only the white would be a medium to light gray. Yeah?
Luckily we don’t have toooooo many October projects lined up. It will be fun to tie up the loose basement ends. And seriously, let me know your thoughts on those curtains. I need your opinions like I need a Dr Pepper right now.
Peace and blessins!
