So last week when Miz Jenee popped over for a quick visit, she blurted out "I LOVE Turnaround Tuesday", referring to "Trash to Treasure." It cracked me up, and also....made me think. Do I like that name better? I mean really, Jenee is nothing if not completely creative and witty with words.
Shall I leave it "Trash to Treasure Tuesday" OR
Change it to "Turnaround Tuesday".
Whatever, I know in the grand scheme it means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! There are starving children in Africa for crying out loud. Libya is exploding and crap like that. I get it. Who cares what I name a stupid blog. I'm just WONDERING, that's all. Ok. It makes ME feel better to have mindless stuff like this, cause then I don't have to think about Libya and Egypt and the whole Middle East and the fact that pretty soon I'll have to be walking everywhere because i can't afford the gas to even go see my neighbor.
So yeah, anyway, PLEASE VOTE!
Alright, I have news, and the news is this. I'm not that excited about anything I have to show you this week. Just a few little projects. Can't post the pic of the Faboo lamp I found for Jer for FIVE bones. Because I'm not done doctoring it up. Can't post pics of my latest chair re-do, 'cause, well, i'm not in love with it yet.
So, this leaves me a picture frame and a trunk. Meh, not much, but they'll have to do.
First, a little picture frame I picked up for a cool 100 pennies (ignore that price tag, it's a total LIE). It was grotesque in its goldness.
A little white spray paint and some glaze and we've got something to look at. Now it's on my photo wall in my bedroom, housing Jers parents wedding pic.
Next is a little ol' trunk I bought at Target like 8 years ago. It sat happily housing a couple of pillows and a blanket as part of my decore. However, the years and the children have been unkind to it, and it was looking a little worse for the wear. I mean really....cheap to start wtih. Falling apart. I finally took it out of my living room and thought I could make use of it somewhere in my bedroom. My original idea was to paint it white and distress it some. BUT, I also had the idea to use upholstery webbing on it, and that didn't look so good with white. So, instead.....
Clearly this bad boy has seen better days. So, I took off all the hardware, which meant that eleventymillion screws later, I was ready to paint.
A quick little spray paint of black, and then a not so quick cutting, measuring, gluing of the webbing and then an even more tedious of the re-screwing and I was finally ready. (don't anyone worry that while I was busily creating, 5 children were destroying my house to the point it looked like a bomb had exploded. No matter....they had the time of their lives being pirates, fighting "the bad guys" and running amok. No children were harmed in the neglect of my project).
And that's all she wrote for this week. I'll try to have something better for next week.
Meantime...I went and saw Body World tonight. That was pretty cool. And Maggie literally just started barking like a seal (coughing) from the bedroom OUT.OF.NOWHERE! As in, hasn't coughed AT ALL in at least 2 weeks. Didn't cought once today. Then BOOM, 11:00 p.m. and the coughing extravaganza starts? Not cool. NOT COOL AT ALL! She's gonna be out here soon, I can feel it.
Also, Jere is not in rehearsals for a show he's in at ASU. EVERY NIGHT until 11:00. LAME!
