I Have a Project List

Yeah another post about moving. Sorry. Deal with it.

As our move gets closer, my "project list" keeps growing.

So far I am:

converting a parlor sewing cabinet into a china cabinet (shelving purchased)Converting a sewing table into a deskRecovering a vanity benchRecovering dining room chairsSanding and refinishing a vanity/deskPossibly refinishing a headboard.
I am strangely committed to making our new apartment a home. I have never had a place that wasn't a hodgepodge of free furniture. I have never had  a place to share with someone else. I want to do this right.
I have no idea where this burst of nesting is coming from. It certainly isn't something I inherited from my parents. I know some of it is doing the most with what we have. We have limited space, and some great stuff that could just use some TLC and/or repurposing.
I am looking forward to the new challenges and having fun getting the apartment in shape.
