Well, I thought I had this all figure out, but it turns out I’m gonna be changing plans for a little while longer. No doubt this isn’t the end, my friends!
This week my struggle was with furniture. I find myself wanting to get all new furniture in here, but the reality is, our furniture is fine. it fits in the space, and it’s just far too easy for my brain to go to wanting something new/effortless than to plan out DIY’s that will take time or energy. I should say it’s far easier to want the ‘easy’ way THESE DAYS (of working from home during lockdown and homeschooling and pandemic) than normal. I think under normal circumstances, my thoughts go first to DIY and repurpose.
Anyway, I’m going to show you my plans for all new stuff before I even get into talking about what’s REALLY going to happen and how I am going to indeed repurpose all the things!
During week 1week 1, I showed you this:
Then I totally went off and did THIS:
It still would have included a potential DIY built-in bench but would have set us back several thousands of dollars to get new chairs, table, pillows, and make the bench.
So what are my plans now? Well, the dining table is getting a new base, the chairs will be reupholstered in some new, lighter vinyl, and the whole table will get painted black. And I’m super happy with that decision!
