Making Progress

I had a chance to work on the 70's pad this past weekend and was able to make some real progress. I have a lot of things started, but nothing finished.

 I got a good start on the kitchen cabinets.  For time sake, it will have non-opening doors.

 I got the curved sofa made, but it still needs legs.  The spiral stairs still need a hand rail although I thinks it looks cool with out it.  Maybe I'll will just risk falling off of the stairs.

 The upstairs wallpaper has been chosen.  I found this scrap book paper months ago, but they only had two pieces left which isn't going to be enough.  So, I made a few color copies onto some card stock.  The color is slightly lighter, but I think it will work. The bed has also been started.  It still needs legs, lights, shelves and bedding.  I made it out of maple which is too light for the 70's, but I like maple.

The trim has been started too.

I think if I can work on it at least an hour a day, it will be finished in time. ;-)


  1. Wow! So much progress! It's going to be so exciting to see it all come together. The couch turned out amazing! The fabric is a gorgeous colour and I can only imagine how difficult it was to get everything to curve around like that. Can't wait to see the kitchen painted :)

  2. Everything is looking so good! I love the sofa and staircase, and the wallpaper selection is perfect.

  3. so much done, this looks like a exciting project and I cannot wait to see it finished

  4. It looks so promising!
    Its bound to be great.

  5. I know what you mean about an hour a day, Im under the same deadline but at least I'll have some time to finish up things this weekend


  6. Great progress! I'm curious to see it finished.

  7. Great progress! I LOVE that couch. I would ditch the handrail plans, yes it's totally an accident waiting to happen, but I think it leaves the space more open. Keep up the good work!!

  8. Love all the curvesI I am especially in love with the orange fireplace, but love the curved sofa as well!

  9. This looks really good! I love the floor =)
