I’ve been realizing that I haven’t posted anything entirely crafty or creative in the least this last week-ish. Sorry about that! We’ve actually been slaving away on a dining set for a client, which includes a table with two leaves, 5 chairs and a china cabinet. We hope to finish up this weekend, so hopefully we’ll be able to post about it next week! It’s all turning out pretty fantastic. Here’s a little teaser progress photo for your benefit.
In other household-related-news, our living room wall still looks like this:
I use this unfortunate design catastrophe to my advantage by using it as a blank canvas to practice some of my painting techniques before actually applying them to projects like the pantry and orange china cabinet.
If you missed the post about why our wall looks like this, we’re planning to tear this wall out completely to open up our floorplan a bit. But we ran into some snags including but not limited to: loadbearing issues, redirecting duct work, etc. So we plan to tackle this job sometime mid-summer once we can save up some moolah. It’s going to be pretty great when it’s done! I don’t mind looking at the guts of my house for a few short months.
Let’s see, what else… OH! So as you know, we’ve been having some issues with the girls frolicking and fooling around in the crib at night before they fall asleep. I know that most twins don’t still share a crib by the time their 11 months, but we don’t have room for a second crib in the nursery.
And we like having them sleep together. So we want to make it work as long as possible!
Creepy night-time photo!
With that said, we’re thinking about constructing a mesh divider contraption that goes directly down the center of the crib, with a bar above it to make it very stable and taut. This may sound like a terrible idea to you, but we’re going to give it a try.
Here’s a detailed professional to-scale rendering (NOT!) of our plans. hehe…
We’ll keep you updated on these matters.
