Um…Not Sure What to Title This One

Monday, March 1, 2010

Thanks so much for all of your advice about my noisy bed situation. Y’all have some fantastic ideas. And what is wrong with me that I hadn’t visited Knock Off Wood before?! I don’t know that I can tackle building my own bed right now, but that site is awesome! So thank you for all of the amazing suggestions.

I accomplished quite a bit on my secret master bath project over the weekend, but once my arms were so tired I couldn’t lift them anymore, I knew it was time to stop. Also, might I suggest something to you ladies out there? Do not attempt complex and possibly infuriating DIY projects when you’re in the throws of PMS. I’m just sayin’  - I very nearly caused some permanent damage to an innocent caulk gun because the stubborn, petulant, temper tantrum inducing caulk was approximately the consistency of taffy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

And finally (yes, I’m already at the conclusion of this post), as an FYI, check out the March issue of Coastal Living. One of my favorite designers, Erika McPherson Powell, is featured. You can read more about her work on her blog Urban Grace Interiors.

I too love Knock Off Wood- Ana is awesome! Also- don't attempt DIY complex things while pregnant...the lack of mobility for bending/lifting is frustrating...and I've been known to wrestle a caulk gun too! :) Cant wait to see what your secret project is- I've been following on Twitter!

Isn't it funny that when we start a project we're so excited and in the middle we're like what was I thinking?! Luckily remodeling must be like childbirth because once we finish it we forget about the pain! Can't wait to see the end result! I saw Erika's post this morning, she is wicked talented!

Once again, you made me laugh. Can't wait to see the "secret project"!

They are lovely. :) I wish I had a lovely bank account that could accommodate those lovely rooms. ;)

Cannot wait to see your project and PMS in any form is just awful - feeling your pain - well, not literally, but you know what I mean!!

Ana White said...

Thanks so much for the mention, love your blog. Will be back to visit!

her designs are so pretty! my dream kitchens. i have a question! does ANYONE have a good source for inexpensive knock-offs of her gorgeous industrial pendant lights? i'm in love with those, but not with the (sometimes) near $1,000 price tags!!
