It’s Monday. And guess what – I GET to work! My pastor’s been doing a series on faith in the workplace and it has been really good for me. I sort of suck at bringing faith to the workplace so hopefully I can take some of the lessons he taught and actually put them to good use.
Katie and I had busy weekends! Katie was gone all weekend at a women’s retreat with her church. I babysat her kids Friday night and spent the night (her husband wasn’t going to be home till 11ish and there is no way I was going to last to 11). I also gave Matea (Katie’s oldest) date cards for her birthday – one of those was a sleepover at her house – so she used that up. This of course meant a wake up call about 7am. On a Saturday. Awesome.
Adlee always wears my shoes around so of course she put them on right when she got up to. Love it! Sunday I spray painted a bunch of stuff. Because dude, it was nice enough to spray paint – WOOHOO!!
I’m in re-do my room mode and I’m basing it on these two pins.
I’m loving the gold and hot pink.
My room had a muted pink which I like initially but then I decided I needed some color. And hey – I’m still single so I might as well have a hot pink bedroom while I can!
One of the things I painted today was my bedside stand. It looked like this.
I think I bought it at a garage sale last year. Maybe. Don’t quote me on that. It’s served it boring brown purpose well. Until now.
After a few coats of some fabulously bright pink spray paint, this is what it looks like now.
Thoughts? Do you like? I had bought a gold spray paint for my dresser but when I used it I realized it was more of a glitter paint, not a gold color. I still did my dresser that color (pics to come later) but also did the bottom of the night stand legs too. You can kind of see that. They look more gold in person. And of course I didn’t tape off the top part or anything (since it was still sticky from doing it 5 minutes earlier) so it isn’t the best look. Maybe one of these days I’ll make it look all pristine. Doubtful but you never know.
I’ll get some photos of how my room is coming along soon. I’m really really happy with the progress!
So did anyone else get outside and do some spray painting or garage saling this weekend?
