It’s a cold, and soon to be wet, Spring Break here in Kansas — which, sadly, is pretty normal.
We are even supposed to have snow for the first day of Spring, so it looks like there will be no tanning-in-warmth-of-the-sun for the child that wishes to remain anonymous.
We did take a quick minivacation to Kansas City for a few days and took in some fun shopping and consumed a staggering amount calories including lots of pasta, bread and cupcakes. Looks like the kiddo and I will be spending the rest of spring break in the gym.
While we were gone my mom stayed with the pups and spoiled them rotten. We did bring the babies home a few goodies from one of the stores we always try to hit, including bones, a polo shirt for Charlie and some tutus for the Gracie and Lulu.
Even though it was fun to get away, it’s always nice to get back home — especially when you have three little white faces (and one brown one) to hysterically greet you.
Five minutes in the door and kitten threw up all over the floor … ahhh home sweet home.
So while we may not be having blue skies here, I do have a couple of new blue end tables / nightstands makeovers for you.
Here they are before:
And here they are with a new look:
Gorgeous! Did you use chalk paint and glaze?

Wow- They turned out great- that is still a hot color, isn’t it? Lovely job! xo Diana
I am dying to paint something in my house turquoise. These turned out great. So glad you enjoyed Kansas City. That’s where I live! We really like it here. 🙂
You definitely should Desiree! Oh yes we usually go up there when I can go to Hickory Dickory, Good Ju Ju, etc. Sadly Spring Break didn’t fall on the first weekend of the month though 🙁
