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!
Linking up at these parties!
