Have you heard of the dreaded disease homeowners catch nearly every winter? I had it bad last month and I’m still not out of the grips of the February Funk.
In my last post I promised to be back in a couple of weeks with an update on our newly improved living room. Well, here it is.
What has changed? Not a darn thing! Jeromy had a last minute change in his work schedule, so we had to delay starting this project. Boooo! Then, when I went to Sherwin Williams on the last day my 25% off coupon was valid, I heard the clerk tell another customer that a new sale would be starting soon with a larger discount. So, I haven’t even bought the paint yet. I usually get an e-mail when they start a new sale and I haven’t seen anything. I think I’ll have to do a drive by and see what is going on at my local store. So, no progress in the living room. Maybe next week?
I haven’t even accomplished much more in our most recent room re-do, Josh’s room. When I last wrote about it, it looked like this.
All I’ve gotten done in there is hanging new curtains. I ordered them from IKEA when I was actually working on the room, so I have had them for a while. The big hold up was my indecision on the curtain rod. I thought a brushed nickel finish might work best in the room, but every other room in the house has matte black curtain rods from World Market. I finally decided to go with the matte black and my local World Market was out of stock. Frugal one that I am, I went ahead and took a rain-check so the shipping charge would be on the store instead of me. I’m not sure that was the brightest move because I had to wait more than two weeks for the curtain rod to show up at the store. Groan.
Anyway, I finally have the curtains up.
See, how much I’m still in the February Funk? I didn’t even bother making Josh’s bed before I took the picture. Anyway . . .
I picked white curtains over a pattern because we plan to paint stripes on the blue wall and I didn’t want it to get too busy in there. The stripes aren’t done yet because Josh and I couldn’t agree on a pattern and then I thought we were going to start on the living room and I lost interest in struggling with stripes. I’ve also considered adding a border to the plain curtains, but I’m not sure on that either.
Ugh! I normally don’t like to write rambling posts like this, but I wanted to show how sometimes I just don’t get anything done around here. Sometimes I’m not in the mood for a project or Jeromy isn’t around much to help me on a big project. Here’s hoping the February Funk ends soon, we are after all well into March.
