I can't pinpoint where all of this motivation is coming from, but I think just the feeling of knowing things are finally done (as opposed to lingering) is encouragement enough to keep up the pace. It's also nice to just take advantage of calm weekends when they come around (but I suppose one could argue it isn't so calm if you do work the whole time. I digress.)
Now that I'm feeling all productive and accomplished, the two projects that have been sitting in the back of my mind have resurfaced with full vengeance. Do you ever look at do-it-yourself websites and feel invincible? Pinterest as a funny way of doing that to you. I have fallen prey to the DIY approach. We'll see how this turns out....
Here's my two pet projects for your Friday musings that I have my eyes on:
DIY Headboard. It just seems too easy to not build it yourself (says the woman who has never built a thing besides a coat hanger). I planned to do this in the summer, and got as far as making a list to go to the store.
I'd love to stick with cream colors, since our bedroom paint color is a deep steel blue and the contrast would be amazinballs. I keep going back and forth on making it tufted, but I'm leaning towards this top picture.
Another big project that I'm overly enthused about is redoing a dresser that has been downstairs since we moved in. It's a gorgeous dresser that my grandmother had given me years ago, but the wood color never fit well. I want to use it in our guest bedroom or office, so I've been exploring ways to restore/redo it.
This navy and gold always catches my eye, so crisp and classy! I also have an obsession with all things blue. My only reservation being that we have black furniture in our bedroom, and I can't handle how it shows every dust mite. Maybe the navy will treat my ocd a bit better than black.
Then there is this grey color that I keep returning to...but that may also mean we'd need to repaint a room to fit the dresser. Sort of like buying an entirely new outfit to fit the shoes. Not opposed.
Those two should keep me busy for a while. Let's hope they go just as smoothly as other bloggers make it seem.
For all of you DIYers out there, any projects you have up your sleeves as Fall approaches?!
