Have you noticed the new feel to the blog? I had the lovely Lindsay over at Happy Potamus Designs (also the Artsy Fartsy Mama) do a revamp for me. My old blog header was awesome, but it was getting stale. I wanted to be able to update the site with the seasons, so super Lindsay to the rescue. She took my very abstract not very good ideas of what I wanted, and transformed my blog! It's new, fresh, bright and I love it! Great big thanks goes out to Lindsay!
I also got two huge bags of fabric scraps from my Aunt at the baby shower. They have been sitting in my craft area calling out to me. So finally went through them and found some real gems of stuff in there. I'm itching to turn it into a project!
But first I have to finish the huge project that I started last weekend. Some of you remember the old dresser that I posted about?
Well I started re-doing it. I started off sanding the drawers...and sanding...and sanding some more. Then for a little change of pace, I sanded some more. I think I took off three layers of skin from my fingertips in the process! Finally got them sanded down and painted. Then I looked at the actual dresser and remembered all the sanding goodness. And decided my fingers can't take it anymore. So I'm just painting overtop the ugly color and hoping for the best. (I can hear the screams of agony now from all of you who have done this kind of thing before...but I am sorry sanding and I just don't get along...)
That is what I'm going to be finishing today. Hopefully I'll get the hardware bought, attached and the dresser moved into place by this weekend so I can get some good blogging type pics for you guys.
It's almost the weekend! The weather is finally acting like summer, and we are going swimming this weekend. We didn't get to go ONCE last summer...I was bummed because this is the best thing about summer. So this year I told the hubs that we're going or ELSE. So I need to get the dresser finished before Saturday so we can go splash around like maniacs!
Thanks for bearing with me through the crafty dry spell. I promise there's more to come shortly, I just have to go finish it first! Happy almost weekend guys!
