Onto this weekend... Remember last week I made a list of things to get done before September? Well, we're scratching off things people and I am so excited that the house is starting to look like an actual house! I PROMISE I will start the Home Tour series this week. That's a promise. More like a a personal threat to myself that I need to get my shiz together and just do it. Here's a little sneak peak of what we've been doing this weekend!
Saturday we started on the gallery wall. We woke up at 7:30 to catch some garage sales, and after going to two horrible ones, we hit the gold mine on the third and we did good people. That would be 9 picture frames and a medium size straw basket (not pictured) for $40. I left with a really big smile on my face. I spray painted them and pulled out our white frames to put together a mock up for the wall. It's up, and we just have a few frames to fill now! After all of this, Joel and I rewarded ourselves by going to our favorite Mexican restaurant for yummy food and margaritas!
I worked on painting our china hutch on Saturday, then Joel took over on Saturday evening and Sunday to finish the rest while I did household cleaning. He did good. Very good. I may make him my personal crafting assistant! This hutch was really ugly y'all. I think we gave it life. Thanks to Annie Sloan chalk paint, it's a beauty! We used Old Ochre and Soft wax. Have you heard of her paint? No, go visit her store right now. It's basically a crafter's dream paint. No sanding, no priming...just paint! It's amazing.
