Well, I posted my overall to-do list for the house earlier this week. Here’s my list for the next several days. They’re things that I think I can probably complete as long as I get to work!
Add more velcro to rug – I’ll have my sewing machine out for the blanket anyway, so this should be quick and easy instead of time consuming.
Stain hutch corner – This’ll only take a few more coats. Easy peasy
Sew microsuede blanket – I got like 5 yards of microsuede on clearance a few months back. Since it’s not fluffy, I think it’ll be the ideal dog-hair repelling blanket material. The plan is just to fold it in half and add a layer of quilt batting in the middle. Then maybe stitch an argyle type diamond pattern for the quilting. I’m still not sure on this one. I’m imagining it’ll only take a couple hours, which means it’ll probably be an all-weekend project.
Cat Scratcher? – Perry keeps eating the cardboard containers that the cardboard cat scratchers come in. I think I’ll cover one in fabric to see if that helps. Who knows.
Hang pendants – This shouldn’t take that long, but it’ll be a man project. Electricity terrifies me.
Finish painting island – I STILL haven’t done this. It needs another good sanding in some spots, and one more coat. I am monumentally lazy.
Order doors & drawer fronts – This will take some effective measuring and math. I will need to consult with Craig, and possibly my father in law to ensure I’m not making any errors.
Hang bookshelves and landing strip shelf – I am excited about this. A good place to store my cookbooks!
Finish building 2nd layer of raised beds
