2014 Project Status: February / March

In an attempt to get things done, I kicked off 2014 with a big ambitious project list for the Borrowed Abode.  I decided to share updates every other month.  I need to post these updates, because seeing the list, and how much I have left to do, helps keep me motivated.


I finally finished the studio – so that’s one room “done” for now!

Living Room & Dining Room

  • Reupholster Sofa – Post here
  • Sew Curtains
  • Find Large Door Mat
  • Sew New Pillows
  • Cover Lamp Shades
  • Reupholster Knoll Chairs
  • Resolve Dining Room Art Situation
  • Sew Table Runner


I should have done the sensible projects (rug & weather stripping) during the cold months, but instead I did the fun stuff.  I think a rug is on the back burner for now, since the weather is warming up.

  • Add Weather Stripping to Door
  • Find a Rug
  • Organize Undersink Cabinet –Post here
  • Organize Spices – Post here


The redo of this room all hangs on the new bed.  I hoped to start building the bed in March, but lots of business travel threw off my momentum. April, maybe?
