As always I am amazed that another week has come and gone….yikes!
This week we were able to get a few bigger things checked off my list, yay!
The first is the DIY bed. I will have a post coming out soon with all the details about the bed. Let’s just say I love how it turned out. As a DIYer who struggles at being neat and tidy, precision in building is hard for me, very very hard. I built this thing by myself and even though it’s not perfect, it’s strong and I feel good that I built it….plus, it was $50 in lumber, can’t beat that!
I made a quick trip to IKEA this week, that’s a story for another day…. But, in all the chaos I got the last of the decor for the room. While I was there I also picked up a strip light to go above the closet. This bedroom is quirky to the max. There is a light right in front of the closet and it was just awkward. The light strip actually looks good there.
Here is a quick peek at the dresser I got at the thrift store for a steal, $50. I found the best product to restore this piece. I will be sharing more about that soon too!
My dad gave me this old unusable ukulele, seen in the picture below. It doesn’t even have strings or tuning keys. I am debating about painting it a fun color….any thoughts? Or, should I leave it as is? It’s a cool old piece.
If you ever watch my Instagram stories I asked your opinion on if I should paint the knobs gold or leave them….I am still debating, but would love your input!
Here is my t0-do-list:
-finish floor molding (it’s only been 3 years, I guess I should get it done! HA!)
Install new lighting
build bed (yikes)- ( done!)
-Fix craigslist dresser
paint accent chair (craigslist find)
-TARVA nightstand hack- (bought but need to be assembled)
-create DIY art
-build headboard (still on the fence about this one)- now I think about it, I probably won’t have time :/
-make DIY curtain rods- almost done!
-hang curtains- (bought but need to be washed and pressed)
-build and hang floating shelves
-hope I don’t give myself a heart attack (jk)
