I am super excited for my first link up with
DURING the madness yesterday,(running back and forth to my computer to buy more at the TPT sale) I managed to make a couple of things for my classroom!
Seats for my library has been on my list since
Yep, ya'll these have been sitting in my garage for
A YEAR! EEK!
My hubby was too happy to come home and see them done! HERE I GO!
I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF! YAY!
I will post more pics of my library when it's finished.
Another project was a spray paint project AND if I would have known the "during" before the "END" I would have taken more pics. (Insert embarrassed pic here)
This is an old desk that I wanted to make black. Simple, right? Well, no. I don't spray paint. My mom was a painter and I have always painted and restored everything the "right way".
I am kind of pressed for time because we are leaving for a short vacation on Thursday so I thought "just spray paint it." What could go wrong? My mom is probably laughing from heaven. <3
From the pics, nothing looks like it went wrong but if you note back to the first pic, the bottle of MINERAL SPIRITS. Yep, that's because I was fully covered in spray paint after I used the entire can on half the desk. Yes, I WAS fully covered in spray paint...down to my cuticles.
It wasn't pretty.
WHO KNEW that you DON'T take the white plastic thingy out??? I thought it was a protector or something.
BOY was I wrong!
My dad had to come over and rescue me! He went to the hardware store to get mineral spirits CUZ that spray paint doesn't come off with soap ya'll! I miss my paint!
It all turned out ok, but it was SO drama! I wish I would have taken more pics hopefully you have some funny pictures in your head right now. :)
So that's why I don't spray paint!
