while in the garage i thought "oh, i'll put a rubber band on the paint can so i can rub my brush on it rather than on the edge of the can so i don't have to clean up the mess on the can...." works for martha stewart!!!
i get the rubber band almost all on & SNAP!!!!!
THIS is the result:
black paint all over my face, glasses, neck, clothes, legs, garage floor!!!!!
it would have been easier to clean the edge of the can!!!!!!!
so, after i take a bath in the sink & slather on MORE suntan lotion, i go back outside (forget the rubber band trick - i'll never do that again!!!) ...........these are what i find.........where the heck did THESE come from????????? and what did they do with the sun? (must admit, they are pretty & we NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED rain soooooooo badly!)
and it's thundering.
so i haul everything BACK to the garage.......................& decide to do the picture frame & put another coat of paint on the shelf.
we got a total of about 5 drops of rain!
so i haul everything BACK to the patio!!!
and sanded til it was dark & i couldn't see anymore - but i got it all done!
so i hauled it all back to the garage & painted the desk & drawers!!!!!!
i LOVE how it turned out!!!!!!
well, now it looks like this:
i painted the lamp too!! it had that yucky green paint on it & to me always looked like dust!!! (i prefer my dust natural!!!!)
if you stand still long enough i'll paint you!!!!!
i REALLY LOVE this!!!! i can't wait to get started on the dresser & bed! but that won't be til probably late next week because i AM going to dallas! suzanne couldn't fit everything in her car. and she took her friend sara with her. i have to take the rest of her stuff to her & bring sara back home.
i'll be driving on fumes -- fumes in the bank account!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but that's ok because.............
even if.......even then..........i will be happy with the Lord, i will truly find joy in the God who saves me!!!!
here's the painted shelf & painted picture frame. i like the way they turned out too!!!
well, the only project i'll be doing this weekend is hauling things into a dorm room.......but i'm blessed & love my little girl!!! i can't believe the summer is over already & she'll be gone until..................who knows???!!!!!!
i tried some "tweaking" in the comment thingamajigger, so try to leave a comment.
have a blessed weekend!
