Practicing what I preach:
So, as some of you have seen before, I keep the
garage pretty tidy.
However there were a few misc things
and large pieces hanging around waiting for me
to get off my duff and do
something to them or with them.
An old horn case, I already ripped out the guts.
Two sets of beautiful shutters that I have yet to display.
Three picture frames, some bath rods I purchased
for a client I did not use
and failed to return, and one of the West Elm
felted ball wreaths I have yet to disassemble.
Also remember the door from last week?
it's coming in too.
again blurry... no time to re-shoot ARGH!
Some wire racks I use for shows, but
meanwhile I could use in the house.
Some bits of this and that.
Some nice old hooks from my Dad,
2 bobeches, ivory knobs, star and moon hooks,
bunny key rack and vintage drawer pulls.
So, another trick I use to push myself is, I haul junk
into my kitchen where I stumble over it, and it forces
me to make a decision. I plan to have this all in use
by the end of the week. Another idea is to broadcast your intentions and your deadline to a very wide audience and
embarrass yourself if you don't get it done. lol
Another sticking point, and we ALL have them...
is this table on my outside porch. A nice tea stained
tablecloth and pretty ordinary looking basket of silk flowers.
Not horrible, but not much effort put into it.
This was here all last winter, and it is the view from
my kitchen window. Not so inspiring...
This table has to be covered because at least
ten years ago, I cut this plywood circle with
the intention of doing a mosaic top...
and it never happened.
Meanwhile I covered with various tablecloths
which were always dirty from
the desert winds and fading from the sun.
So in my face, I BEGIN to get it done!
I have already installed the two bronze bath rods
on the porch and hung 2 pair of old
tab top curtains I ran through Rit Dye
about 2 hours ago. They look like regular rods
because of their color and decorative ends.
Dug through some paint and have the brushes
ready to do the plywood in the next hour.
Have ideas for both the black hooks
the bunny key rack, and the old door.
The clock is ticking...
stay tuned and wish me luck.
