This semester is going to be a busy one. I have Portfolio class. In all my other classes I have a helper, but not in this class. It's the busiest class, and I have no assistant. Luckily the class as a whole is better than last years class. It's still a lot of work.
Home projects seem to take over my life when I'm at home. This summer it was the kitchen floor, and the outside of the house that needed to be painted. Then it was the bathroom toilet, the floor, and the molding. Then we dismantled all of our DVDs.
We put them in a binder, which takes up a lot less room, and looks nicer.
Soon I'll be starting the steps. We peeled off the carpet as soon as we moved into our house. The previous owners had pets, and many of them.
Here's what I plan on doing with the steps:
I have a hodge podge of ideas. Some of them I've found on Pinterest, and some of them are my own ideas. I can't decide if I want to use my own ideas, or mix up the ideas.
My Idea number 1: My parents wanted to get rid of old encyclopedias. They actually came from a school library years ago, and say, "Burn" on them. The Good Will wouldn't take them. The recycle place only want the pages; not the covers. My Dad was in the process of breaking them down. He was going to burn the covers and recycle the pages. I said, "I'll take them!" I thought I could cut them length and height wise to cover the backs of the steps. I know there won't be enough to do the whole job. I guess since I'm cutting them I could use the pages to. I'd have to dip them in resin, or something though.
Pinterest idea number 2: Old rulers, or yard sticks on the backs of steps are cool! I'd probably go up and down with them vertically; instead of horizontally. I thought a mix of the encyclopedias and rulers would look pretty cool. The problem is finding rulers that don't have words on them. Companies love to put Lowes, and Home Depot on their yard sticks. I want no additional words on them. Why do companies have to slather their brand name on stuff all the time? Ok I know why, but I don't want it there.
