I am so tired from all the early morning and late nights of the ORC for the reveal this week, I can barely see straight.
However, The 2014 Fall Style Cure waits for no woman to catch up on her sleep. It marches ever forward.
Days 1-4 here.
Day 5: Focus on a floor plan.
I love floor plans and I would do this if it was possible to change anything. But it isn't, so it's kind of a waste of time, at the moment.
Day 6: Increase Colour Confidence in five minutes.
Been there, done that.
Day 7: Do a clean sweep and pick up paint chips.
I have paint chips. In fact, I've even decided on the colour I think I want to paint the walls. It's Ralph Lauren's Elgin Gray (RL 4343). I've been waiting for testers to show up at The Home Depot so I can try it out before I commit.
As for cleaning, I have the day off on Sunday. I think a thorough scrub is an excellent idea.
Day 8: What's your room missing?
Actually, my room is missing something that makes those fabulous cabinets I painted this summer look like they belong in the room. The fabric shades I've been meaning to sew would do just that.
Day 9: Dig in and Do research.
I have instructions for how to sew a roman shade in a book I've had, like, forever. I just need to read through and make a list of supplies I need.
Day 10: Make a list, Set a budget.
Here we are.
2. Make Roman shades.
3. Possibly re-paint the chairs. That cobalt blue just isn't working anymore. The only thing holding me back is that they need thorough sanding--(best done out of the house) and we are hitting negative double digits next week. So. I do have the same chairs in black spread throughout the house. Perhaps the best thing to do is just drag those into the kitchen for now. That table cloth also needs to go.
Day 11: Choose a date for a holiday get-together.
I want to have some of my daughter's friends over for a cookie bake off. December 12th might work.
Day 12: Shop and Gather Supplies.
Well, OK. Not for a few days yet, I think. I'd still prefer to test the paint colour I chose. But I can't wait forever. As for those shades, I could, possibly, start that. And do you think it is too soon after the ORC to ask my husband to sand those dratted chairs for me?
