Yay for a 4 day work week! Sure it feels like Tuesday, but it's actually Wednesday!
I am loving lots of stuff right now. Here are few of them.
I am loving that I FINALLY got started on this furniture painting project. I had been spinning my wheels trying to decide what to do and finally got going. The backstory is that I bought this gigantic wood hutch at a yard sale for $25 and the hubs had to haul it home for me. To say it was heavy is an understatement. I got it so cheap because it had been sitting on someone's front porch for 2 years. Mind you, the porch was very deep and it had been completely covered from the elements, but still it was in rough shape. It was filthy too with pollen dust and dead bugs in it. But I cleaned it all up.
I was amazed at how much it covered of the dark wood with just the first coat. It is the most forgiving paint I've ever used. I only had drips a couple of times. It is super thick but it coats so well. The second coat made all the difference. I can't wait until this piece is all done. I plan to put it up in our living room to use as additional storage and to display seasonal items.
Also, I am loving the new Fall catalog from Thirty-One! I want to host a party this time (I never have) so I can get some good stuff and buy Christmas presents.
I am also loving my wonderful hubby that listens to all my ideas about the house and lets me buy expensive paint. LOL I love my little stinker too! He is still coughing and has this stupid ol' cold. But he is happy as ever! Love my guys to pieces!
