I taste oil primer in my mouth. Apparently that stuff is lethal and should only ever be used outside and then left outside for all of eternity. I had to use it on the mdf we used to build the shelves. I think it haunted me all night long. I can’t get it out of my nose. I’m freezing because all of my windows are open. It’s just not leaving. I think once I get another coat of latex paint on there the fumes might seal in a bit better. At least it looks fabulous right??
This weekend was all about that dang shelving unit. Good thing it’s almost done. I’m expecting to do a couple more coats of paint and then it’s done like dinner. We need to paint around it as well as we had to do a lot of drywall fixing.
I went to the fabric store yesterday afternoon to get the fabric to upholster the “bench” that was once the hearth of the fireplace. I just got Brent to cut me a piece of mdf and then I bought some foam and some fabric, did a little wrap job a voila, it fits inside the space we made for it. I felt like I was on Trading Spaces.
I was a mess in the fabric store. COMPLETELY overwhelmed. It’s not like I’ve never been in one before. But I’ve always had someone to tell me what we needed and I wasn’t ever the person making the fabric into anything, I was just going to be wearing it at the end. Anyway, the rolls of fabric were never long enough but looking back now, they would have been. I was going to go for a traditional pattern but it wasn’t working out with the roll length and the way the pattern moved. So I found some brown stuff with embroidered polka dots and off I went. I was actually nauseous at the end. Oh the stress!!!
Anyway, that’s all. My house is a disaster and I really don’t think either of my children are sleeping. Time to go lay down the law and then clean.
