nesting...


besides cleaning and making things for the baby, i've also been trying to check off some of the projects i've been putting off around the house. i've been busy sewing curtains the last week. i don't know why, afraid i will never get to sew again once baby comes i guess!

i made curtains for the front windows. i hate covering them up at all or blocking any light in this old, tends to be dark, house but it was necessary. we live on a fairly busy street and privacy was a real issue.  it does feel cozier though...




i took off the cabinet doors under the kitchen sink, which are hard to keep clean and added a sink skirt instead. i want to paint all the lower cabinets grey, but they will have to wait awhile...




i made matching cafe curtains for the kitchen window (all the windows will be replaced eventually). you can also see the chalkboard i painted here last month...





i have a pile of curtain rods that still need to be hung, but need my husbands help with that. i did purchase some new chairs for the living room this week. i need to add seat cushions to both. i found a great rug at homegoods (how addicted am i to that store?) but it sold before i could go back and get it:( so, i will have to be on the lookout for another for the living room...





the living room needs a lot of work. i have a lovely grey paint picked out and need to hang curtains and art work, plus find the rug. we also decided on impulse the other day to start dismantling the fireplace surround. why? we wanted to see what was under the ugly fake marble someone put in. of course this proved more difficult then we thought and now it is just in pieces waiting to be finished...





other than that, i have been rearranging furniture some, and baby items are starting to pop up all over the house...





sometimes i wish i could just do all the work i'm dreaming of in my head at once, but unfortunately do not have the money or time for that. baby steps!
