Where's the Time Going?!

I've been busying working on replacing the chair cushions on the dining room chairs in between other projects..Eldy is helping me with getting the staples out. We finally bought an Osborne upholstery staple remover/puller which is making it a lot easier than using a slotted screwdriver.

This was a dining set that came with the house. Six chairs and a nice big dining room table. The beige cushions were badly stained on some of the chairs, and they just seemed too blah for me.
So here is what all six are going to look like AFTER I get done with them.....Four down, two to go!
The in between project is peeling all the paper off the master bedroom wall....DONE! The brown stuff is the paper backing that stayed behind after the wallpaper came off. Now the messy job of wetting it with a spray bottle and shaving it off with a putty knife.....If anybody has any ideas on how to get this paper off more easily than wetting down the whole wall one section at a time, I'm all ears!
Got the oar/paddle that I bought at the local Red Barn Flea Market last week hung over the hall table....Thinking of using the paddle for a place to hang a hat or two if I put some more hooks on it....Purposely hung the paddle at an angle, just to be different!

Today was also estate sale day.....We found a practically brand new bistro set for 75.00, powder coated bronze aluminum, two chairs and a table with the rattan look. Cha-Ching! It now sets on the lanai in a corner. Not much room out there, it's a small lanai, but the bistro set just fits...Now all I have to worry about is someone having too many beers and falling into the pool which is right at your feet in that corner!
And the days just keep flying by......


  1. Amazing how time flies when you are having fun.
    Nice upholstery job.

  2. You are doing a wonderful job decorating that place. It looks very inviting!
