The whole house. What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #

Yes, yes, I've been WOYWW missing most of the summer--still working on revamping the whole house.  Well, it's turning into the whole house, it was supposed to be just the first floor.  I'm trying to get everything painted so we can get carpet in before Thanksgiving.

Here are the dining room chairs I recovered (there are 2 teal, three grey, and 3 of the blond wood ones), the new curtains too--you can see the bare subfloors.  Let me tell you, painting is SO much easier when you don't have to worry about getting it on the floors!  You can see Daisy just down in the corner, she's a great "help" with all these projects, as you can imagine.

The chair in the middle--I stamped the fabric with the teal paint.
Here's my Unruly Paper Arts article for this month--EXTREME Clean and Simple.  If you've been to my blog before, you know full well I do not have a particularly clean style, so this was an interesting challenge for me.  If you're up to it, I've got an extreme challenge (with candy for you, of course), through September.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to laying floor tile in the bathroom.  ***sigh***

(Someone please tell me this is all going to be worth it . . . )

Happy What's On Your Workdesk, everyone, and thank you, Julia, for the snoopfest!

It's definitely worth it already! Those chairs are lovely. I know what you mean about cats and 'helping'. I'm having to keep an eye on the bookcase (paint drying) in the garden, so mine doesn't decide to sleep on it! Have a great week, Chris # 34

I have floors that need something doing to them and haven't worked out what yet, ripped up the carpet a few months ago and haven't had time to sort it yet. Yoda pee'd in a few spots, so it had to go. He was a traumatised kitty, but we'll worth it in the end. I should sneak him over to your place for thanksgiving he enjoys turkey and roast spuds. Love your chairs they are real funky. Hope you get the bathroom finished soon.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

Those chairs are fabulous. trying to get certain areas of our house sorted, redecorated etc but it seems like two steps forwards and three backwards!!! Sure it will be worth it for both of us in the end. Happy WOYWW Anne x #32

Love the chairs! It's worth it when if it gets finished. Mine never did so you'll have to let me know. :) wrists are slow to heal this time round and now a nasty cold to boot. :( I'll go go look at the altered arts blog. Thanks! Hugs!
