I am not gonna lie....this was one crazy week. I lost 2 days because of a short trip to Chicago to escort my husbands Dad to a doctor visit. He is almost the picture of health at 94.
I do have a little problem though. This decor.
If this is what I have to look forward to in my old age I am protesting right now. No sir. Not acceptable. They have 30 years to update this crap before I get there or they will have one cranky bitch to deal with.
I was surprised to find these would work! She has a couple of parsons host and hostess which will be upholstered in one of the patterns to go with the wallpaper. Neutrals....surprise.
While I was there I looked around and saw these candlesticks.....
I also took a stroll through Renaissance Tile for selections on a project.
Love these concrete tiles for the floor in one room which got the OK!
And last....since the ORC reveal is coming up I might as well tell you how hanging the curtains went down. Normally I DO NOT participate in this activity.
There are so many factors that can go wrong....getting them level....too many holes with drywall and then wood....it can put me in such a mood that there is not enough wine in the state of Georgia to offset it.
You don't know the "ex bunny". We have a saying around our family called "Maggie World". Everything takes 5 minutes and is no problem.
We had 3 of these poles to cut.
We started with this tool....
After 15 minutes of trading out the job cause our arms were burning we switched to this one....
Yeah.....we got this.
Well we might as well have been using a butter knife....
I walked away no less than 5 times cussing....texting my installer to see if he was anywhere near to offer him WHAT EVER HE WANTED TO COME AND FINISH THIS JOB.
Meanwhile the Maggie was laughing the mean laugh like she was enjoying my pain.
It only took 4,325 hours but those suckers are up.
