My dad asked me how my guest room makeover was coming along today.
“Dad, it’s taking me forever. I could probably get it done in 4 days but it’s impossible when you have little kiddos.”
He then told me he just watched The Bridges of Madison County and paraphrased a line from the movie, “When you have kids you put your life on hold to watch their lives grow. Then when they’re grown and you pick your own life back up you don’t know where to begin.”
Preachin’ to the choir.
So here’s my slow progress on my latest room makeover.
I found these amazing green trellis sheets at HomeGoods several moons ago. I actually purchased them for a client who has run in to some snags so her room has been put on hold. Collecting dust in my closet I thought I’d put them to good use. I’m using them for a few things (don’t want to prematurely ruin the suprise) but I will reveal that I cut them up and made a bedskirt. I simply detached the existing ruffle from the muslim and sewed on a new skirt. I will also reveal that I’ve given up on sewing machine. The thread broke 10 times while I was truckin’ along. What up? I fooled around with the thread tension on my needle and bobbin to the extent of a few explicitives…still can’t figure the darn thing out. Any ideas?
