First thank you all so much for the encouraging and very helpful comments about my new diet! Really and truly, I thank you. I have already looked at all the blogs that were recommended and have made my menu plan for the week.
Mr. Genius, in an effort to cheer me up, took us to Whole Foods to see all the beautiful foods. Seriously that place makes the most unhealthy eating want to eat better.
That is until you go to the check out.
They need to change the name to Whole Paycheck. Geez!
But the good news is I found a new favorite food!
My heart skipped a beat when I saw them! They are really good! Yay! I think this new way of eating won't be that bad, just a change in the way I think about food.
Anywho, I am rambling. I have got to show you my new project.
Cuz what is a week in my life with out a new project?
It is a worthless one I tell you, totally worthless.
My laundry room is one reason that we bought this house.
On my list of wishes for a house was a laundry room...not a laundry closet...or like we had in our old house...a laundry breeze way...but I wanted a laundry room.
This house had it and I was sold. Now it of course wasn't decorated at all. Actually the whole house was a blank slate even though it is a 5 year old house.
So the laundry room is my room I am focusing on next. Not that I won't get side tracked on other projects or anything.
First thing I did to the room was paint it.
I painted it dried parsley. It is a Benjamin Moore color. But I had Home depot color match it with their paint with the primer in it.
Which works great by the way. Highly recommend that stuff.
Next to make it a little more homey. I wanted a curtain.
But you have to remember. I am lazy.
And apparently getting the sewing machine out, was too hard for me. So I decided to make this a no sew curtain.
Off to Ikea I went to pick out fabric.
Came home and found this wood in our garage...we really need to clean out our garage.
To make the start of the curtain...
Now most people when they see someone selling their old sheets at their garage sale, get grossed out by thinking of sleeping in someone else sheets. I on the other hand, get get excited about them. Because I see curtain liners.
I think that I am the cheapest person in the world.
But I think that these sheets...
are going to make a lot of curtain linings.
I stapled the sheet onto the rod.
Here it is all stapled up.
And here is my male Vanna White to show you it all done.
Now I need to take the time to apologize to anyone who actually makes curtains the way that they are suppose to be made.
Cuz, I totally do not do it the way it is "suppose to be" I do what I want so that it looks right when it is up on the wall.
I wanted a pleated curtain.
So I started with the inside of the pleat.
I used iron on sewing tape.
Then I stapled that onto the board ontop of the white sheet.
I forgot to take the rest of the pictures for how I did the rest of the curtain.
But I am sure you get the idea.
Then all I had left was making buttons and the tab.
For some reason last night I woke up and all I could think about was finishing this curtain.
I think I have a sickness.
I got up at 11:30 and got out my handy dandy glue gun and then it was finished!
I glued the buttons on the tabs and then I glued the tabs onto the curtain.
(the colors on the wall looks really yellow, but it isn't in real life. The last color is more true to the actually color)
And this what was in the laundry room, that I had and still have no desire to do.
Ugh laundry. How I loath you.
Then after Church Mr. Genius helped me to hang it up!
Although I had to wait until night time to take picture due to glare.
The room is started to look a little better.
I am linking to these parties.
