That's true. I've been so busy, but all I've done it's starting project after project after project, and I'm not even mid way thru with most of them. :/
I've been working for quite some time in the backyard. I'm building a
big flower garden on the right corner of the yard. Most of the holes for the posts were done like three months ago, but last week, with the nice weather we had, I decided it was time to finish this.
Some more digging was necessary to reinforce that wall. And I have to tell you, that's one of my least favorite jobs. Oh my, the following day I was a full bag of sore muscles!. :(
Anyways, after taking a full day break, I finished the wooden part and started the leveling of the wall blocks.
Some of those blocks came from the vegetable garden I created during Spring. It turned out, I didn't like growing my own vegetables. All the squirrels, birds, butterflies and bugs won that battle. My hat's off to the farmers and farmers at heart for their incredible job.
I'll be happy to grow some herbs like basil, thyme, rosemary, mint (one that grew like crazy!), but vegetables, that's another story.
The vegetable garden was dismantled and all that good soil was brought here to this new flower garden. This is what I've done so far, I need to buy more blocks and more soil. I'm taking my time because those blocks are HEAVY! I'm gonna give you an update of this project during Spring next year. ;)
In my spare time, I've been emptying this, the living...
And dining room. I already bought some wood to start the build-ins in here. I still need to get rid of those shallow shelves and the baseboards.
But, now that we're talking about the dining room, look at my latest score! I'm so giddy! :) Well, I didn't find it. My SIL was the one who saw the Craiglist post and immediately knew it was something I was going to love.
Midday Sunday I was picking it up. As soon as I saw the pic I remembered Beck's words on my last post about this room and the library tables. Hey, Beck, I think I got one!
The previous owner used it as dining/art table, hence all the paint spots.
I love that it has three little drawers and they all work nicely. I'm still thinking on how to update it. It sure needs some work, but hey, I can't wait to start working on it. Oh, and this baby was free. ;)
