ORC FALL 2017, week six...and counting!
November 10, 2017
Hello Everyone! This is week six and it should be the reveal. I am grateful for the extra time, and I am taking full advantage. This translates to I am procrastinating and leaving my biggest projects for the final week.
But, do not fear, progress has been made and thrift store gold has been struck. Let's start with a quick DIY, which cost $0.00. I loathe the wire plate hangers which cost little but take FOREVER AND A DAY to actually place on your plate...which may or may not be facing the correct direction by the time you finish. Can I get an amen?
To save my sanity and my finger nails, I found a quick little Pinterest DIY for plate hanging which involves, Gorilla Glue and a Paper clip. Luckily I have both of these items on hand most of the time, and was able to put them to good use...
So simple right? The hardest part about this project is waiting for the glue to dry. The post where I found the DIY assured that their plates have been hanging for years with no problems.
The other major DIY, I completed this week are the seat cushion covers for my orange chippettes. I just have to cut down a twin size mattress pad as my filling, and they will be completed. Let me say...I am in LOVE!
Aren't they so pretty?
The final piece of this weeks progress came in the form of an unexpected, DREAM Goodwill find.
AAAAAAAHHHHHHH, this perfect jar! I could not believe my luck in finding this and I cannot wait to place it center stage on the new dining table under that gorgeous new Chandy (which is sitting and waiting for install). The best part about this jar?
I cannot even! The only way this could have been better is if it had been Red week.
The to do list has shrunk:
Hang new light
Sand and Stain tabletop
Build or buy table base
Finish hanging plate wall
Stuff the seat cushions
Like I said, the biggest projects still remain, but there is something about a deadline to put some pep in my step. As always thank you to Linda for this fun time, and please take time to check the other designers. ONE MORE WEEK, and then ORC BLISS!
