|Nice dog hair on that.|
Instead of stitching, I've been working on my homework for the organizer. I've started a number of things but haven't finished them for various reasons. For example, this weekend I started to change the outlets. (When we moved in they were all brown. Who has brown outlets and light switches? Why?) But I was one outlet shy. Yesterday I ran to Home Depot and picked it up but after running all my other errands it was too dark to finish the job. (Since I have to cut the electricity to the outlet--by cutting it to the room, really the whole upstairs--it's a job to do in the daylight.) However, while I was at Home Depot--where three different employees asked me if I was finding everything I needed!--I picked up zip ties.
Part of my homework was to find paper storage. I had found this DIY project online. We had an old nine cube set in the basement languishing unused. Add a few hundred zip ties, and voila. I'd show you a photo, but the few hundred zip ties need to be snipped before I can load it up. I was so pleased with myself that I found a really cheap shelving system. ($8)
Today I pulled into the consignment store on a whim. I'm looking for a bureau and a bookcase but I saw this beautiful oriental cabinet in the window yesterday. The cabinet was too much money (and really dinged up). None of the dressers had tracks for the drawers, but I did find a red bookcase. Twenty four inches wide and five shelves--perfect for the corner! And the price was right. I have five days to find a bigger car and pick it up.
Okay, that outlet isn't changing itself.
