The countdown to Haven (my blogging conference) is on! I will be leaving Thursday morning at the buttcrack of dawn — or 5:00 AM if you want to get precise.
For the girl that doesn’t usually go to bed until 2 or 3 AM, that means one thing…dark circles.
This week, I have been crossing things off of my list: Hair cut and highlighted … Done. Much needed pedicure … Done. Gift for my roommate (which was incredibly hard since I have never met her in real life) … Done. Last furniture project completed…well…almost done — Topher has to help me get the hardware on it, and then I have to photograph it tonight.
On today’s agenda: spray tan and start packing.
I am pretty excited! After our trip to DC a few weeks ago, my suitcase broke which gave me the perfect excuse to buy a pretty, hot pink luggage set. Topher says it is impractical since he will never be able use it. I told him he should since it will be really easy to spot at the luggage terminal.
He said nope.
One of the other last minute projects I finished was this darling little vintage child’s chair.
My uncle was getting rid of it and wanted to know if I wanted it.
Well we all know how I answer the question “Do you want something for free?”
It was a bit banged-up, and its seat was terribly stained.
I dry brushed the body with Ivory Lace Plaster Paint.
I then distressed it and coated it in clear paste wax. I reupholstered the seat in a pretty white and grey fabric that I found at JoAnn’s.
Viola! Good as new, and it would be super cute in a nursery or little girl’s bedroom.
I will be taking this down to my booth before I leave!
