Here’s a look at our little stove:
Now that we actually have a place where I can sew, I haunted Fabricland for three days straight — bought all the material to full re-cover every cushion on her on a “half off everything” weekend. Have I mentioned how much I love sales?? This is my sewing area:
This is an example of WHY I’m recovering the foams:
I think it has potential in the form of a tote? Damon’s not a fan in the least.
So while I’m struggling to teach myself to sew again (had a little mix up with zippers), Damon’s been doing some finishing in the salon where the couch cushions go:
OOooooooh!! The inside! Damon built this panel under the couch to provide an easier and stronger access to a small storage space — the old one was flimsy, and hard to wrestle out. It’s birch ply trimmed out with cedar. Butted up against it is a step up to the couch, which Damon laid down cherry tongue and groove flooring. This picture doesn’t do it justice to how good it looks!!
He took these pictures with his phone, which is why this pic is affected so much by the natural light through the porthole. But I wanted to show how nice and cleaned up it is — now woodfiller or nails showing. Now imagine it with navy canvas foamies and some throw pillows of white, burlap, red and a ticking pattern… I’m very excited about this.
And at the end of the day, this was what Damon saw:
In recent events, we’ve put dibs on a brand new black Nova Kool DC refrigerator, which we’ll pick up this week, and have also decided we’d go with a Dickenson diesel stove that we can get for a good price, as it’ll need a little tinkering. Kei has also sniffed out her favourite dock person — the one who smells like Smokies and always has a stash of milkbones in his bag.
