I've been flitting around a lot this past week, starting pretty much every remaining project and finishing none. Time to buckle down.
I started painting his side table. Before:
I need to buy a foam roller for the top. I used flat spraypaint on the legs and Rustoleum Gloss Black on the rest of it.
I also bought fabric for shams and pillowcases.
I still need to hem the curtains. They're just broadcloth, and I happened to catch a really good sale that made them $1.31 a yard, with each panel being three yards. The curtains weren't at all difficult, mostly because I scaled my plans waaaay back. Originally I had planned to stencil them with triangles or arrows or something pointy. I was kind of inspired by Remodelaholic's curtain tutorial, and I thought I would just do triangle outlines with a concentration toward the hem. Except I worried that it might be a little too '80s, and not good '80s either. So then I thought of something in a row, inspired by the Nate Berkus arrowhead rug that I love. Except then I thought that I really did not want to hand stamp or hand stencil twelve yards of curtains. What if I screwed it up? What if I screwed it up on the last curtain? What if I didn't screw it up but I hated it? I wasn't in love with any of the ideas, so in the end I did nothing. I'm fine with that. Yaya was never on board with all this stenciled shape nonsense, so I'll pretend like I'm deferring to him and not chickening out.
