Weekend projects

September 17, 2011

Other projects in progress, and progress on them:

  1. Shoe baskets for the shelves where the girls keep their shoes: Thinking of making my own out of cut, taped, and recovered diaper boxes.  Mess around with this tonight.  Thinking of something like this, but not so elaborate.
  2. Glass storage: Have obtained.  Get a second set on next Costco trip.
  3. Painting girls’ bedroom: 3/4 primed, have been ignoring for months.  Might be I need to get someone else to do this.  Need an enthusiastic teenager in the neighborhood who wants to make a few bucks.  Don’t have one.
  4. Bathroom tiling: Got tiles in garage.  Got an estimate that came in way higher than I wanted it to though we were really impressed with the guy.  Would like a second estimate.  Arrange one this week and keep the first guy on the hook, let him know we’re looking into another estimate.  Ask K if her husband knows anyone.
  5. Pictures in upstairs hallway: holes filled in, frames painted white- touch them up this weekend if it’s not raining.  Need to get a new 8×10 frame for group shot of the kids to hang at head of stairs, and need to re-hang the other four frames.

Completed projects:

  1. Toilet paper holder fixed
  2. Frack mirror hung.
  3. Spontaneously cleaned out silverware drawer this week.

Some things maybe to add to the project list:

  1. Clear off table in dining room and get nice long tablecloth.
  2. Recover dining room chairs to match tablecloth.
  3. Clean out Sean’s shorts drawer
  4. Girls’ closet and their book chaos.
  5. Clean out my makeup drawer and move makeup under sink now that good mirror is in bathroom.  Use makeup drawer for clothing.
