Picture of the year....a little set back

So I have been busy priming my big pile of furniture.

I have everything primed and just need to paint. I headed to the paint store today to purchase my favorite paint for furniture........ever! It is a bit pricey but you don't have to finish off the piece with poly. My Dad used it on my kitchen cabinets a few years ago. Have I ever shared pictures of my kitchen....? Anywho, the paint has a super hard finish and stands the test of time.

So, after a long day at Homeschool Co-op, the Lobby(aka Hobby Lobby), and a field trip downtown to pick up Daddy, I made it to Sherwin William and had my precious paint in hand.

Only to do this with it.......

Prepare yourself......

You can scream if you want to......

I did......along with throwing a big fat fit when no one was looking!!!!!!!

SERIOUSLY!!!! How did I spill an entire can of PAINT on my HARD WOOD FLOORS?


If that didn't give you a good enough laugh you may want to check out this particular day in my life. Or if you are like me and need a picture to make you laugh and my paint spill wasn't enough for you, then this one might do the trick:)

Another Project

I found this table last weekend for $4.99!!

I have been wanting a side table for my living room and this is just the one. I am going to paint it Whiteberry style. That is, once I finish all of my other projects.

Have a Great Weekend!!

Studio 31 update

The walls are painted and the faux wood floors are installed. Woohoo!! We still need to paint and install trim and paint lots and lots of furniture pieces that will enter the room in the next few weeks.

Like this guy......remember him. My $30 find! I can't wait to paint and distress.

He has a $60 friend who wants to come home with me to live as a buffet but he refuses to drop his price. He'll come around.....I'm sure of it:)

This little lady was going to be pink but I am trying to talk my little girl into painting her white.

This is or new manikin (or is it mannequin? I have always been a bad speller) for the sewing room. She is going to help us out by modeling projects we are working on or have finished. Isn't she cute! My Momma got her for us:) Thanks Mom. Now she just needs a name......

I really like the floors. They are a discontinued brand from Lowes so we got a super good deal. They look and feel like real hand scraped hickory.

Still lots to do.....paint and install trim, install ceiling, paint lots and lots of furniture, make fabric covered cork boards.....lots to do....lots....

And if that's not enough for me to do I decided to make the kids Easter outfits this year. Which means we might be celebrating Easter a month late...he he! I am making the dresses and shirts similar to these.

Although, I may make long skirts instead using this fabric:

Or these.....

The boys will have matching bow tie shirts or regular tie shirts.....they will be so cute. Oh, and I found an awesome little clutch purse to make for the girls to go with their dresses. Can't wait to share with you!!
