My do-it-yourself project today was a Design Wall - I failed:
I've never had a design wall, but seeing them all over the blog world made me decide I would like one. For a trial, I picked up this flannel-backed plastic tablecloth in the clearance bin for $3 and with a hank of velcro from the dollar store, I set about making one. I don't have a blank wall in my 12x12 room so I put self-adhesive velcro dots along the top edge of my shelves, then set about stitching the velcro on to the tablecloth. Being frugal, I thought to myself: "Self, let's sew the fuzzy side of the velcro on to the back of the tablecloth so someday if I want to use this fugly plastic tablecloth, I can." As you can see, I didn't really think that through!
At that point, I gave up for awhile and went outside with my sweetie and played in the snow! He learned the pleasures of throwing snow.
Daisy had a wonderful time too, she looked like a rabbit hopping through the foot-deep snow, with her ears flying:
If dogs could smile!
