Whew, we made it through the weekend. This past weekend we had Nora’s birthday, she is now 7! I will have lots of goodies, projects and crafts to share. I am thinking next week it will be a Frozen party craft extravaganza. It will be all about the DIY, one project after another. I need some time to organize the pictures and projects. Some decompressing and reflection is needed before I attempt to do the Frozen project tutorials. When I say reflection I mean stare at a wall and not hear kids, screaming, no more throw up (oh yeah, it happened), pick up shirts from already peed in toilets (also happened), clean, or do anything but sit in a comatose state for minimum of 5 days. I should be able to arrange that….. decision time, to kick the kids out or run away? It is one or the other for me to decompress.
For better or worse it is Monday, and I am eager to get back to normal. So, today I am sharing a great dining room bench redo for my usual Monday project. We had purchased this bench from a great wood craftsman store where all of the pieces are untreated or “naked”. With the plans to paint it eventually. We finally got around to painting it, almost 4 years later. Not procrastinating, just busy bee’s.
I have to say that when I use the phrase “I did” it is really Dale on this one. I am still struggling with my shoulder injury, so Dale did all of this while I iced my shoulder on the couch. I don’t get to rest it a lot during the day and this particular project was done at night. That is when I try to get all of the recommended ice and rest I am supposed to do all day, I make it count for a hour or two in the evening. I do what I can.
After that it was done! I don’t know why we put it off for so long. It literally took us (Dale) all of 1 hour including wait time for drying. We ended up changing this and finally painting it because of a somewhat big change we did in the dining room. It will be up on Homedit soon. I am so excited to share it. But, it is a unrevealed surprise until it goes live. For now enjoy the simple and lovely dining room bench redo.
|Ok, we had some fun too. These are my peeps and I am kind of in love with them.|
