While I was procrastinating cleaning the basement and our walk-in closet, I decided to repaint the front door. And not only repaint but change the color. From a tired, faded, dull-looking red…
I’m not sure I like the new color. Change can be difficult. I think it’s the shininess that has thrown me. And I usually have something hanging on the door but I want to let this paint harden before I decorate it.
I finally finished the reupholstery projects I began last year. I reupholstered two wingback chairs, one from my mother’s house and one from iPad aunt’s house.
To give it the look of two cushions, I cut the side pieces a little bit longer than necessary and sewed a piece of cording about half way down. Simple.
No progress pictures, just the final.
Mr. Aitch and I power washed, cleaned, and scrubbed the deck, deck furniture, and the patio umbrella last weekend.
I didn’t get a picture of the dirty umbrella when we began but this was a cheap nylon umbrella and for now, I just wanted it semi-clean. I ended up using some dishwasher detergent with bleach (I know that’s a no-no) until I ran out of it. Had to save some for the dishes! It’s not the best but it’s better than it was.
I still need to get more plants.
