Cannot catch a break. As much as we need the rain, and love the rain, I need to mow the yard. The landscapers are six weeks behind on their projects and I can’t get a new yard put in until the end of May. So, until then, mowing is becoming a challenge. The pasture grasses absolutely grow a foot a day it seems. And I can’t get out to mow until it dries out a bit between rain storms. I did catch a couple of days of “dry” last week and got the front 2 acres mowed before more rain came through. We have had more since then. I spent half my time washing off the mower deck of the Husqvarna to unclog all the grass and mud stuck underneath so I could continue to mow.
In the meantime, I am trying to get some more projects started and finished around the house. Today, I went to Hobby Lobby and got a wall stencil to do a bit of accent on the powder room wall. It needs something in there a bit dramatic, so I will take before and after photos. I hope it turns out the way I envision it.
I am finishing up painting some tables so I can resell them. I tried decoupaging one tabletop, but am not happy with how it turned out. It wrinkled and was not an easy project and I am reading up on what caused that to happen. I may have used too much Mod Podge. I was also reading where some don’t like that product and recommended another brand. I will give it another go.
I did install some Rev A Shelf drawers in the master bath buffet-turned-vanity. It was an easy install and is definitely better looking than the little plastic tubs I had used for storage. The RevAShelf brand is a little pricey, but the quality is definitely there, and the chrome looks so nice.
I’ve followed the blog-land’s One Room Challenge. It has a six-week deadline, and fun to see what everyone is up to in their makeovers.
It’s clouding up and looks like more rain is heading this way. No mowing for a few more days.
