DIY {overload}

 

Maybe it’s because I haven’t been able to workout in a week, but I’m in project overload!  First after Miss M ripped my beadboard wall paper I decided to go ahead and repaint my kitchen nook.  It turned in to the never ending project after I decided to paint the little hallway connected to it.  I ran out of paint and when I went the next day to pick some up, I guess I was in a hurry and totally messed up.

I picked the wrong color! Then I liked the darker one better so I had to go buy ANOTHER gallon to finish it up.  Of course now I need different color curtains and I have to repaint the bench and the shelf because the teal just doesn’t go.  Seriously, I put like 7 coats of paint on these walls and I’m {almost} painted out Smile 

 

Then I accidently bought this cute table and chairs while getting a little happy time in at the thrift store.

Look at how cute the back of the chairs are, how could I pass that up?  Plus it was furniture discount day Winking smile

 

My garage is really full right now….

Well, if that wasn’t enough spring break is in a week and I am tackling my biggest project yet!

I’m tearing up the carpet and laying new flooring in not 1, but 2 of the biggest rooms in our house.  No joke, I’m all Mrs. DIY, but I’m scared this project is going to be harder than I think! 

I did take a little break today to take Miss M to Sesame Street Live and oh boy did she LOVE it!! She was clapping and dancing and it was so much fun to take her!!

I probably shouldn’t say, but by some miracle my Mom is off work tomorrow and we are spending the day hitting up a flea market and then Canton Open-mouthed smile  Hopefully nothing too big accidently comes home with me!

 

Happy Weekend!!

  1. But now that you have a sewing machine there is no need to buy curtains! You can make them yourself :)
