2 cans of Anchor Gray Paint (test board in the background)
4 5×7 rugs (put together with seam tape)
Dining chair covers
Tree branch and bird decal for the wall (not sure what to do with this just yet)
From my previous post, I told you about the garage sale I had to raise enough funds to refurbish the dining room. Well, I did not know that rugs were so expensive! The least expensive rug I found that I could live with was $300! I have to have at least an 10×12 due to my dining table being 5×10. Well, I went in to the local home store and saw Berber carpet in 5×7 remnants already bound for $25 each. I quickly did the math….4 5×7 rugs would make 1 10×14 rug and it would only cost $100. I snatched four up, bought two boxes of seaming tape and did exactly what the man is doing in the picture.
I think it looks good…for now! Especially since I do not have $300! I would have had to spend my entire garage sale profit on the rug…which would not have been bad, but I have already bought the paint and other items. So, this will do.
After school lets out (this week, THANK GOD!), I will be finished for the summer and I plan to paint the dining room sometime next weekend. I plan on decorating and spiffing up the dining room also, then I will take pics and post the final ta-da pics. (***Update…next weekend, yeah right! I just painted the dining room and “spiffed it up”. August 6, 2010).
We are still working slowly on the bathroom. The caulk has dried and I am going to finish this project up (hopefully!!!) next week as well. Vivian will be gone to Grandma’s house (woo hoo!) and will not be underfoot. I have a big superwoman list for next week. We shall see what actually gets done.
