I have been sort of unsettled lately and I think I need some kind of project. Unfortunately, creativity is not my strong suit-by any means. The PJ shorts for the boys, as cute as they were, were not a great fit-pretty small in the waists, pretty big in the legs. Sort of MC Hammer shorts. Not exactly the look I was going for. Nate can kind of wear Ben's shorts, and I say kind of because they look really funny.
I have so much cute fabric in my stash, but don't know what to do with it. Nothing is really coming to me.
I think I want to do the kitchen cabinets and all the trim in there, but, whoa. That is not just a project, but a life choice.
I also want to print and frame pictures of all of us to put up the stairs. But I am pretty afraid of achieving that not so special Brady Bunch look (which I just googled and those darn Bradys didn't even have pics up their stairs-I have been using a bad reference for quite some time now). I want to use all large black frames with big white mats. Not sure if the pictures should all be black and white, or some color-or all color. Any thoughts?
I also, irrationally, am planning our future guest room. When Nate gives up his crib-we think we are going to put both boys into Ben's room. He is in the room over the garage, and it's really big. Gil and I think it would be fun for them to share a room until they are older and need privacy. They play with the same toys and have pretty much the same schedules, so we think it will work out nicely. And I really want a guest room. I have been keeping my eye out for a queen size headboard that I can paint red. Nothing fancy, I'm looking at Goodwill and yard sales for something cheap but with "good bones". I want to do that room in red and turquoise-and yes, boys will be allowed to sleep in there. I think I am allowed one really cute room-since it's just me and a bunch of boys around here! I thought about making a quilt for that room, but a queen size quilt would be really expensive to make and would take a whole heck of a lot of time. And I'm not sure if I could do the quiliting on something so big on my regular machine. Wow, that turned into a book for something that isn't even happening anytime soon.
So, any ideas for a project?
