Missing in Action

Thursday, 26 May 2011

This house has been B-U-S-Y this week. I'm just sitting down to catch my breath! I've been painting a large, white armoire while having a sick kid. He's had a 104 fever for 3 days (thank you Roseola!) followed by a double ear infection. Round 2 of ear tubes is scheduled for July...thank goodness!

And then there's this:


My oldest graduated from preschool today *sob*

I sometimes let the projects that I want to finish for myself take a back seat to projects for others. In the last month, I've finished a few projects for myself...and that makes me happy!

Remember my grandpa's desk that I did here? Well, I finally had some nice enough weather to get out the spray paint. In my opinion, the only way to paint chairs is with a good ole' can of spray paint. In this case, Rustoleum Heirloom White.

I tried to find a different chair that would work....but the opening for the desk is so small, that this was the only one that worked. Here is a before of the chair. You'll have to imagine the seat cover because it was too hideous to show. Seriously. My mother, bless her heart, tried to cute up a room years ago and recovered it with an old pillow case that, at the time, may have looked nice. It burned my eyes to look at it and I wanted to save you all from that pain.


And the After


It now sits with the desk up in our "currently being redone" guestroom. I just ordered the duvet cover for that room and am SO excited for the reveal to come!

The last thing is the banner I made for our front door. I'm possibly the last DIYer in blogland to do this, but I love it anyway :)


That'll have to tide you over for now...I've got a super french table in the works! Stay tuned!
