saturday project!

This was one of my July Value Village finds, the finish on it was a peeling mess, and I have been going back and forth over what I wanted to do with it...

I chose a vintage-style green paint ( it's not turquoise, I swear!) and went to town on it today!

OK, so it looks like turquoise on camera...I'm aware of and comfortable with the fact that I am attracted to these colors and shades! But I love this dresser now! I can't wait for it to dry and stick it back in the hallway with a cute bowl on it.

Total Cost for this project:
Dresser: $29.00
Paint & brushes: $26.00
Time: 3 hours

thrift store project!

I have been hitting up my local thrift store once a week for the past while, and I have found some interesting things! Two mirrors got a makeover last night:

I decided on "kelly green". I need to give the turquoise a break I guess.

Cute! I'm going to hang the other one with it, I need to collect more though, the hallway wall is big enough for a group of interesting mirrors.

It looks like it's going to be a good project weekend, maybe I'll paint some furniture!
have a great wknd!!

flippy cup kind of weekend

I'm too old to get university drunk like this anymore.

Pizza at 2 am was a great idea though.
happy birthday to Lars!

I slammed my finger in our old weighted potato drawer and let me tell finger is throbbing! I have not experienced such blinding pain in a while! Oi vey... the husband came running in, he thought I had chopped off a limb!

My finger looks like a "We're #1" giant foam hand now. Too bad it's my middle finger...

Today was the first time I worked from home for a full day, it was great and I got a lot done and the day flew by. The TV distracted me so it was shut off after an hour and the rest of the day was quiet and full of emails, orders and quotes. I made breakfast and lunch and had tea all day, talked with co-workers on msn and skype and got updates, answered questions and collaborated! technology is unreal sometimes when you stop and think about it.

new wall!

I ordered these vinyl trees off of Etsy, the seller is "NouWall".
I love them! Im pretty happy with how they turned out. Easy art!

I might scrap the birds, move them to another room one day, not sure if I like them with the trees, but for now it works!
