Well I didn’t mean for that to turn into two weeks away from the blog! But sometimes down time can be good. It certainly felt good for me. There just hasn’t been a whole lot going on around here project-wise, which means there’s not a whole lot to share.
It’s not for lack of want or need… it’s more a lack of motivation! I always operate best when I have a deadline to work towards, so I threw myself in the ring to participate in the Fall in Love room challenge. The concept is simple. Myself and 17 other bloggers have all agreed to finish one room in our home by the week of November 3, when we’ll all reveal them to the internets.
I bet you can guess what room I’m choosing for this challenge—the laundry room!—because I’ve already talked about the plans.
And believe it or not, some progress has actually been made. I wish it was super fancy progress that will make you ooh and aah but I have to admit, it’s just the boring functional stuff. The over-the-door ironing board has been removed and new, full-size ironing board has been installed on a rack in the basement stairwell (yay small space living).
I also removed the DIY striped shade and am waiting for the new shade to arrive. I’m going to use the same roller shades I used in our bedroom. While I was at it, I ordered shades for the entire house (we still had four windows with no shades, with neighbors just two feet away) so I’ll have an update on that for you too.
Oh, and did you noticed the brass door hinges have been replaced with oil-rubbed bronze ones? That switch was so that the hinges would watch the ORB door knob. Super thrilling stuff I know (but makes me weirdly satisfied to have them finally matching).
Here’s the rest of the bloggers participating with me!
Thanks so much for being patient with me. I’ll be back soon. I want to share my Seattle trip with you!
So that’s the deal. Participation for the sake of motivation.
