This post is more for me than you guys, to serve as a reminder that I’ve got to finish all these projects that I’ve started. You can say that this is sort of my list of small projects.
I like to think that the ‘To Do List’ I shared earlier (here and here) is for the major ‘room projects’ where a room gets a makeover. This one is for all those small ‘decor projects’ that eventually transform a room. And I’ve so many of these planned, some that I started, some in planning stages, and some just sitting there waiting for me to think up something. So here we go!
I finally bit the bullet a bought……..
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) for redoing the Craigslist chair! The chair has been sitting in our garage for the last few months, collecting dust. Hoping to start the project next week. If everything goes well I’m gonna use the same paint for the dresser (that we found at an online auction) makeover.
A project that I badly need to finish is this landscape painting that I started in art class in March! Talk about loosing your painting mojo!
I know, I’ve been teasing you’ll with plate wall news for a long time. Gotto complete that one soon.
Another one that has been on the teaser list, a sunburst mirror.
The half done Salvation Army lamp has been begging for my attention for days.
The ginkgo leaf fabric that I made from dried leaves, the left over drop cloth from the zebra rug, the felt squares, and the pillow inserts are waiting to be made into pillows.
This burlap fabric was a steal at JoAnn’s ($2.99 a yard). So I got a yard and change hoping to use it in some way to give the fireplace a fall feel.
Then there is this………..
A purple birdcage!!! What I’m going to do with it……is a surprise. 😉 Any guesses?
This is just the list of all the projects that I’ve started. Still got to make plans for these;
- The printing press type case letter drawer from the Old Lucketts Store Spring Market
- The art from Salvation Army
- The chair prints from Goodwill
- The tray and the poultry feed sack from our antiquing trip in Purcelville

You make me feel so much better about my huge list of 1/2 done projects. I’ve vowed not to start anything else until I cross at least 3 items off my list. You know how that goes though, lol. I love, love, love your birdcage and can’t wait to see what great idea you have for it. I keep thinking, lamp, pendant light, etc.? It’ll be interesting to find out!
Ha…ha…ha…That is a long list! Sometimes I get so frustrated that I don’t get the time to actually sit down and do anything when all I want to do is just create something. I guess working full time and trying to these projects in the weekend kind of does that to you. 🙁 This post made me think along the same lines too, that I’m not going to buy any more stuff to ‘redo’ until I’m crossing off at least half the stuff from here. Let see how that goes.
On the guess, pretty spot on but it is something that I haven’t seen DIY’d much (there is one version floating around on Pinterest). I saw a light fixture at a friend’s and was in love but that darn thing cost $$$! 😉
Vidya u r one bundle of energy and i am actually seeing your long list and looking at mine now…..mine doesnt feel so long after all…..hehehehe….good lord….keep doing wonderful things here….looking fwd to see ur finished projects and hopefully i will complete mine too!
LOL! Glad that my list is making everyone else feel better. 🙂 Now I have to finish it!
