Lady mañana

I’m such a procrastinator. It kinda sucks. All those unfinished projects clutter up my home and brain.

I like thrifting furniture and knickknacks that “are in need of a little love“, like a crazy lamp in need of new wiring or an old coat with one arm torn. Finding a sad old thing and fantasizing about bringing it home – giving it a bath and a whole new life, that’s a lovely thought process.

But if I don´t finish it straight away the unfinished projects will bring me down. When days turn into months and I change from “I’ll do it tomorrow” into “get that thing away from me it gives me so much anxiety” eventually I will take the project (the lamp, the coat) back to the secondhand store where I found it.

Anyway since I love sharing my self loathing with you guys (some might even feel better about the fact that we are all more or less crazy) I will now share a few projects that are on my list since a very long time.

Re-wire all the vintage lamps that I’ve bought last year. and give them new lampshades.  Like this one from 2012!

Finish painting furniture and frames scattered around our home.  Like this frame from 2009!!!

Mend the holes of this nightgown

Add furniture feet to all old chairs that are scratching up the floor.

Clean and hang all the bird houses I’ve collected. Like this!

I hope this makes me want to do any of them.
