ITS in the WORKS!
The weather has not co-operated lately last week snow, this past week rain, and more rain tomorrow and who knows how long it will rain...I dont like dreary weather...blahhhhhh
SO once again I've been working on the OLD HOUSE...
Ive got so many projects going on at ONCE...its not all ADHD, its partly the weather! I have only weekends to do anything I need to make a trip to Lowes with my trailer to buy supplies to complete some of my projects and with the rain I found an old leak that supposedly was fixed is BACK...SO i had to repair that first I spent the whole day Sunday on the roof...I HOPE my work pays off I will know soon enough since rain is forecasted..No photos of me on the roof, cause I was ON THE ROOF..ha!
But here is dang leak and the resulting damage...
Meanwhile I pulled out that old bookcase that used to be a window! A porch that was walled in to become a room had a window at one time, I made it into built in shelf, but I think I would prefer more light so I took the shelf out. I may open up that whole SPACE...If its possible and add some BIG Beams shabby chic, rustic meets contemporary, cabin meets loft??? OR I may just close up the spot and put back a shelf unit only do it right this time!! That would certainly be the easiest Thing to do..or put in a glass door and get the benefit of the light. OR a shelf unit with some glass blocks behind it? NOW that may be cool..
I also repaired the attic stairs 2 of the steps were missing...I needed to go up there so I fixed that....
and Ive been chipping away at WALL PAPER omg I will never ever ever get back together with Wall PAPER!
And in this house...4 rooms have wall paper!!
My Ebay sales are doing pretty good....Ive been surprised by it to be honest. BUT I need to move it faster so a flea market is in my future when the weather warms and gets more stable..IF the leak is stopped then I will go full steam ahead in the room Im now calling the library, that adjoins the dining room...a trip to LOWES is in my future!
