The deck project is currently on a roll after several delays. The shutter privacy screen is in place and looking good if I say so myself! Yesterday and today I’ve been working on sewing/hanging the drop cloth curtains.
Here’s a sneak peak of one corner of the deck….
Do you notice anything? Yup, it probably didn’t take very long to notice the color of the drop cloths on the right are DARKER than the ones on the left. OH BOY!
When I purchased the drop cloths from Home Depot there was only 1 left in the 9×12 (8 oz weight) size that I needed. So the very nice employee offered to pick up two more drop cloths at the HD by his house and bring to the store the following day. I happily accepted since none of the other local HD’s had any left. Boy our luck was certainly changing!
Well it hasn’t ! With all the delays I never really looked to see if they matched (the top 2 were same color). As I was sewing them I thought they looked darker, but didn’t give it another thought till I hung them outside.
They are definitely darker. Much darker to think someone wouldn’t notice.
Halt project, head out to HD to see if I can find a better match at the store I originally purchase from.
I will not let this get me down, I will not let this deck project get me down, I will not let this get me down….
Wish me luck!!!
