I did it! Well, if it counts even though I haven't put any kind of trim down to cover the staples yet. And perhaps you can see some of the natural wood where I botched the paint job because I couldn't figure out how to keep the batting down once I'd taken off the ugly fabric. Should have kept it on. I have a bit of a half-way personality... and since it looks done from afar, I'm afraid it might be a long while before I fix those little problems. But anyhoo... one project down! Just 6 months later.
Holy cow--- that's the first time I counted out the months. Sad. Notice there were two? Maybe Ross's ultimatum that the second one is tossed if I don't have it out of his garage in the next 30 days will light a fire under my butt.
And here are a couple of other newbies in the house I've meant to blog. The light fixture from ikea I got a while back and panicked that it was WAY too big for the room. Then Ross put it up and I think I dig it. The rug? A vast improvement from the shaggy old ikea one that left hair balls all over my house, but not the yellow I've been envisioning, so I'm not sold yet.
Can't find any before pictures. I wish I'd done the whole "tag" thing on my posts like everybody else.
