Busy project weekend~



We tackled many projects this weekend. Still working on the bathroom... we're almost there!!


Lot's of spray paintin' went down on Friday.
Here is trim for the bathroom~

Coat rack my mom gave me, I think she got it out of the trash~

Cute little deco shelf for my bathroom, resale shop $3.00

A shelf my SIL gave me. Painted black for my laundry room~
Plate rack I got at the resale shop for $8.00. Had Kevin cut some beadboard for the back and I'm going to paint it cream. What a joke. This thing is impossible to paint. I'm going to have to try and do it by hand! UGH! This will go in the dining room.

Came back outside a few hours later to do another coat on the hat rack. I'm spraying along and it starts to do this crackle effect! I HATE when nothing goes as planned. I don't know why it would do this, the first coat was perfectly smooth. Too humid I guess. Oh well, I'm going to go with it. I'll put a stain over top so it will look old.
I finished another project too, but you'll have to wait for that in another post!

You and hubby have been very busy! Wish I had that kind of energy. Everything looks lovely the way it's painted and your ideas for where everything will go is fantastic. I can just picture them all in their places. Love coming here to see what you're up to next. xxoo
