Happy Monday everyone!!
I had a busy weekend full of painting and cleaning up filthy furniture rescued from barns and sheds, not so fun … but on the upside I found out it was the General Hospital 50th Anniversary marathon. From Saturday night to Monday morning, SoapNet was airing 50 hours of “vintage” General Hospital episodes.
The downside was, I don’t have the SoapNet channel. 🙁
So I called up my cable company and found out it would be an extra $10 a month. So I did some negotiating and got my bill reduced by $16 a month; so basically, it meant I got the channel for free. So now I have 50 hours of GH recorded and no time to watch any of them.
The unnamed child has been sick for the last 5 days but had been toughing it out at school. Today she woke up even worse, so I decided to keep her home. I have a million projects I need to work on today, but instead the kid and I are taking a sick day together. We are camping out in the basement with the pups, some junk food, and a 50 hour marathon.
The kid and I have watched GH together for years, but she doesn’t know all the back stories of characters. GH has now brought back a lot of the original characters (Luke and Laura, Duke and Anna, Frisco and Felicia), and we are going to have a history lesson.
Don’t judge people. Some parents teach the classics, this is just my version of home schooling.
Speaking of original character, this piece has lots of it.
My client brought me this piece (I am also doing an end table and an armoire for her).
I painted it with grey chalkpaint, distressed it, glazed it, repainted the original hardware and coated it in a clear wax.
Such a cute, grey vintage desk!
