Our house gymnasium is de facto beginning to take form! I do know many individuals questioned my use of curtains in a house gymnasium, and it’s undoubtedly not a normal addition to a house gymnasium (I’ve checked out loads of house gymnasium photos on Houzz, and agree that it’s very out of the peculiar), however y’all know me nicely sufficient to know that if I can add material to home windows, I’m going to do it. 😀 It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a house gymnasium. Home windows (in my house) want material if in any respect doable.
So yesterday, I lastly unpackaged the curtains that I purchased a yr in the past for this room. These are the sheer curtains that I bought within the colour Off White, and I’m actually impressed with the standard. They arrive with pinch pleats and adjustable material hooks, so there’s no want for clip rings.
They appear just a little messy proper now as a result of they’ve actually been scrunched up in small packaging for over a yr, so that they’re very wrinkled. And as you possibly can see, the size is just too lengthy, so I’ll have to hem them. However as soon as they’re hemmed, steamed, and tidied up fairly a bit, I believe they’ll look nice!
I nonetheless haven’t had an opportunity to place the Walmart dresser collectively. You may see the items stacked up by my rebounder. However I did make extra progress on the froth flooring.
The extra I put this flooring down, the extra I’m beginning to have second ideas about it. You may clearly see within the photograph under the place the 2 barely totally different mats meet. The primary three rows (i.e., the primary three packages that I opened) are darker (a more true black) and shinier. The remaining has an ever so barely blue undertone and extra of a matte end.
I initially thought that I’d be capable of push previous that, however I’m fighting it now. Along with the colour/sheen variations, I’ve discovered that there’s no manner that this flooring will stand as much as Cooper’s claws. I’ve to deliver him by means of this room and thru the toilet to get to his yard, and Cooper doesn’t go anyplace at a traditional strolling tempo. He will get from level A to level B by operating, leaping, and twirling the entire manner. So the very first time he “walked” by means of this room, he poked a gap in one of many mats along with his claws.
I do know you’re going to say, “Simply hold his nails minimize quick!” That sounds straightforward sufficient, besides that he’s a 100-pound canine who gained’t let me contact his toes. He’s by no means let me or anybody else contact his toes.
I needed to take him to the vet a few yr in the past due to a ache subject he was having in his again/tail space. Whereas we had been there, I requested the vet to clip his nails for me. Nicely, she tried, and one of many different individuals tried, and neither of them might do it, both. She lastly decided that he wanted X-rays, and with a view to do this, they needed to give him a sedative, so that they had been capable of clip his nails whereas he was sedated. However I don’t really feel practically as responsible about my incapability to clip his nails now that I do know that even the vet and the vet tech couldn’t do it.
So he’s on his personal with the claws. However within the meantime, he’s poking holes within the foam flooring. And I solely have this a lot left to place down — just a little bit in the primary a part of the room, the closet space, after which entry space.
So I’m probably not positive what to do. This flooring wasn’t costly in any respect. I believe I paid simply over $200 for sufficient tiles for the entire room. So at the least if I modify my thoughts and get one thing else, it’s not an enormous loss. I’m positive I can discover somebody domestically who might discover a use for them.
However at this second, I’m pondering I’d order some Flor carpet tile samples. They’d be way more sturdy, and would look nice. I wouldn’t must take care of totally different colours and sheens.
I’m going to order some Flor samples at present, and hopefully they’ll get right here rapidly. Within the meantime, I’ll simply hold the froth tiles the place they’re, and I’ll transfer on to the opposite initiatives within the room. I nonetheless must put down hardwood flooring within the closet space, after which I can put the dresser collectively, hem the curtains, get the entry mild put in, and so on. There’s nonetheless a lot to do whereas I resolve on flooring.
