Things I Did This Weekend to Avoid Doing My Homework

I used to think that if I were to go back to school now I would be a much better student. I wouldn't procrastinate, and I would try harder. Well, since I'm now taking classes again I can say that I was wrong. I still procrastinate. Bad. Real bad.

In an effort to avoid doing my homework this weekend I did many things. First, I cleaned my apartment top to bottom. I mean all of it. I now have the cleanest top of the fridge, grout, and under-sinks in all of Brooklyn.

Next, I took a couple naps.

I also had brunch.

And I did this:

I mean, it went like this:

Take one junk shop chair that I bought in January.
And then I got some fabric. Some impossible to find fabric, I'll add.
"Patricia" fabric from Ikea
Even though the useless stock tool on the Ikea website said it was in stock at the Brooklyn Ikea, it lied. Two times I went, and there was none. So, when I was in Toronto last month, I went to the Ikea in North York, because the stock tool said it was in stock. Unfortunately, there was only about a metre in stock - but I bought it anyway. In the end I had to buy the fabric on eBay because it was unavailable pretty much everywhere.

Anyway. Then I began some sewing, and pinning.

Test drive.

And finally:

And then I did my homework. In retrospect, it was a pretty productive weekend.


  1. This chair is incredible. I wish I had half a clue how to reupholster. You should see the mad mess I made of an Ikea chair recently.

    1. Thanks Helena! I'm not sure it's so much reupholster as much as sewing. I do hope to take a proper reupholstery class though, so I can improve my skillz.
