Hope you guys had a great weekend! Mine was fairly boring, but I sit here starting the week a little beaten up (but with a yellow end table makeover). Saturday morning, we visited some yard sales, so there wasn’t a lot of sleep (I did get some great old books, an antique chair, and a fun little table though); lots of time spent bent over painting, and my back is angry; so much distressing that I have blisters and no skin left on multiple fingers; and the virus the unnamed child infected us with last week was passed on the Topher and I. My entire body is so achy I kind of want to die. I took NyQuil along with Lyrica (that I am prescribed), and I woke up Sunday morning and from my elbows down … a bit numb.
Probably not a good thing.
I was trying to work on my blog, and my fingers felt like your cheek does after the dentist fills it with novocaine. Not good — plus, I usually have laughing gas to go along with that feeling. I had to type everything 4 or 5 times before I could club the correct keys.
The good news is I finally got my three week old Easter decorations taken down! Am I the only one that still had these up? I’m guessing yes.
I need to get some Spring decor going on. Now that the Easter bunny stuff is down, things are looking a bit hare-less.
In case you didn’t notice, Topher helped me do a little tweaking to my blog design. I now have some spiffy new stripes, and am trying to change my logo a bit, but it’s hard when I’m not exactly sure what I want. Topher was getting a little frustrated because I was really great at telling him how I didn’t want it look, but I was struggling to articulate what I do want.
I want to stick with the chandeliers and the turquoise, but I think I want to incorporate another color. Any suggestions? Maybe add some pictures of the pups on the home page? Goodness knows the child that wishes to remain anonymous would have an aneurysm if I tried to put her photo on there, so that’s out. I have to give this some thought.
Speaking of color, here is plenty of it. I got this great vintage table that had great bones but was in rough shape. I painted it with 5 coats of yellow chalkpaint (with yellow, I have to use A LOT of coats), distressed it, glazed it, and coated it with clear wax.
I love the clean lines of these mid-century modern tables!
