A Few Projects

I started making our fabric softener some time ago. It was one of those, hit-me-at-11pm-most-do-now things. It tends to happen around here.

I wasn’t worried about this because I have been using just vinegar forever, so I figured, how could a little water and conditioner ruin it? I made it from this website, but I use half the conditioner. The first time I tried to skip the whisking step. Don’t do that. You’re only making more work for yourself:)

Without further ado- cellphone pictures.

I use an old gallon vinegar bottle and it works perfectly.

I also ripped up an atlas from 1926 to put it on my wall. Don’t look at me like that, it was already in pieces and I saved it from the trash bin

I have a desk that I reeeeeeally didn’t want to repaint. It has a hutch (so much to paint!) and it looks just fine in my room! Except for the drawers. The previous owner tried to paint the recessed part a different color and it was ugly. Very ugly. Even without the sharpie marks. So I got creative to avoid having to paint the whole thing

Turns out we DO use that menu board. Go us.

And I painted the toddler’s dresser today. Pictures, not of my feet, to come.

And do you see that paint covered bandaid on my toe? That’s from stepping on a nail that fell out of the dresser (GHFMSNWKGHJEK!!!!!) and dangled from my foot for a little bit while I stared in shock.  And if you can believe it, I forgot that if a nail was wedged into my foot- it might bleed. I stepped down after I took it out, thinking to get on with my project… only to bloody the floor.

I might be the most ridiculous person on the planet.

      Thank you! Too bad I didn’t take a before pic. I was worried about trying, but I really just didn’t think I could make it worse. Then I was pleasantly surprised by how nicely it turned out!

    Nice job on everything. Except the nail in the toe part. Maybe you should pin pictures of your floor and blood staining can become the next big thing!

      I already cleaned it up. Dang it! I hate it when I miss the chance to herald in the next wave of genius decor.

      And I don’t love my art enough to step on another nail.
