Hi fellow bloggers busy weekend for me, should be at church this morning, hubby had to work helping my brother unload fireworks at the store from a container. My brother runs a fireworks store here in Ohio, its open year round, and hubby, and I are getting towards the season where our life is like a rollar coaster for about 6 weeks:)He works his regular 40+ hour job and then he will work for my brother upwards of 20-25 hours a week, he does a lot of traveling for the promotional part of fireworks season, I will work this year I have in past years but last year I could not. I have always filled in during the year when they need someone. Well anyways this is not the topic of my post.... I well my hubby did most of helping me redo my grandpas coffee table, the wood of it was difficult. We sanded it and spray painted, and then applied a semi gloss paint finish to it. I think it turned out beautiful.:) I was gonna sand paper it and give it the distress look but, I just wanted it to look, clean, and fresh, and that it does even though its BLACK:)I just put it upstairs last night we finished painting our living room and it really looked nice. I enclosed a picture....or two....
Like I said it was a pretty busy weekend and still is as its just early Sunday morning, my hubby had Friday off and we started the task of long hours of prepping, removing border,filling on minor holes and cracks in plaster and sanding, and painting my living room yes the YELLOW I had mentioned before. Well it is quite yellow, and I have been busy with that this weekend, plus I had a baby shower to get ready for and decorate, a small intimate shower for family, for my soon to be niece that will be arriving in May. I felt my mother in law and I did well and stuck to a well maintained budget. I did the decorating, bought the supplies, did the games, and prizes. She handle the food part which was EXCELLENT!! I will share about that later this week on a post. But back to the painting here is a couple before and afters of living room. It took awhile, almost 2 full days LONG DAYS!! Credit to my hubby he took on alot more cause I had to prep plus host a baby shower.I also was trying to paint some accesories for my wall I am doing a lot of black access, so daughter and I hauled out some spray paint and painted some accesories that will soon be in new painted living room.
