When I’m not in the pool

On my mind this Monday is how fast time is moving when I’m not in the pool.  I’ve been in this apartment 4 months now.  I’ve shared with you all how I’ve changed the bedroom.  Into a my version of a beautiful black bedroom.  And how in June I started a June room makeover challenge.  My extra room got turned into half a walk in closet & half craft room.  It’s still not all done and here we are in August already.  Which is why I’m noticing how fast time is moving.  July was just a flash of birthday’s.  So now it’s back to the grind and getting this apartment completed.  I have a plan for August!  But I do know we make plans and GOD laughs.  So here’s what I’m hoping to get done in August when I’m not in the pool with the grandson of coarse.  😉  Even my sister got to enjoy time in the pool with the munchkin this weekend.  He is a water baby thru and thru and gave us a run for our money.


when I’m not in the pool…

In August I plan to:

I’ve started and need to finish painting the kitchen.


White will be the base color and I plan to add some design to it.  I’m thinking a grey for the design but it’s still up in the air.

I plan to refinish a set of chairs.  I the seats on these need to be recovered and I told you all about the fabric I picked up for them in Thrift share Thursday no 40.

chairsthebeforeI will get some Christmas decor thrifting done.  Christmas will be here before you know it.  This will be my first Christmas in this apartment so who knows how it will all come together But I’m sure it will.  Time is flying by.

I want to finish up the craft part of the extra room.


It’s the blue half of the room and needs curtains.  Some sort of storage unite so I can unpack 5 boxes and I’ll be done with boxes.  Woo hoo the end is near.

I also want to finish up my desk nook area in the black bedroom.  You can see a peek below.


I think that’s more the plenty to get done in this month.  When I’m not in the pool of coarse.  Do you have any plans for this month?  Let me know in the comments…

    sounds like you have a lot of awesome projects in the works. I can’t wait to see how they all turn out…that is of when you are not in the pool of course lol

  2. I love how dedicated you are to your craft. I wish I had the patience. I want to redo the decor of the house. I’m so picky because right now we’re renting and I don’t want to buy too much and then move out and have to start over. I’ll definitely be going through your pinterest page this week to get some ideas. I’m terrible when it comes to decorating a room. I’m too plain Jane about it.

    Good luck getting everything done this month. Seems like July was too busy and fun. 🙂

    You’re making me jealous being in the pool. Our plans are to get the hallway finished and we’ve started a new furniture fund.
