It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an actual post about home improvement!

Don’t faint, y’all. It’s been busy around here. And by busy, I mean I have thoroughly enjoyed laying on the couch doing nothing instead of finishing the things I’m supposed to finish. Like the office/playroom/dining room. So this post is really like more of a sneak peek, and not because I want to keep y’all in suspense, but because I realized after we installed one of the shelves that I lost half the parts. And then I didn’t feel like looking for them, so I gave up and now I’m laying on the couch again.

You know what, whatever, the whole title of this page is The Lackadaisical Mom. If you were looking for someone who rallied the troops, you’re on the wrong page. I am just what you’re looking for, if you want a blog with rare and random posts, most of which have nothing to do with renovation lately.

So that’s going to change, though, because we are about to tear this house up. We have lots of plans for this place, now that we have friends that owe us favors.

In the meantime, I put up 1/4 of the shelves I bought in the room I redid like months ago:


I added these shelves this shelf above the desks:


This was a labor of love, y’all. This was 100% one of those “Why pay $20 for something when you can make it for $267?”They were supposed to look different, but this ended up in the “cannot even” category. I could. not. even. So, they ended up just flanges, caps, and galvanized nipples. And we are not even going to talk about the shape of them ok? Behave yourselves. Here is Hubbin, obliging me by putting them up. And by them, I mean “it” since we only did one.



So there. I did something in the house, so you cannot take away my blogger status. I also took down those hideous curtains and picked out new curtains and a new rug for the room. Once the rest of the shelves are hung, I will totally show you pictures so I can humble brag about how flipping awesome they look despite me totally throwing in the towel halfway through and redesigning the brackets because I was tired of going to Home Depot and also because of physics.

So if y’all need me, I’ll be here. Admiring my shelf.

    I like your shelf…even if it is sexually harassing me. But those drapes though…love!

    Enjoy your new space! Someday I hope to have an office. 🙂

      Brianna, the drapes are being replaced by different ones. Let me know if you’re interested!
