What a weekend it was!
We had a very busy week last week as well as a very busy weekend.
We didn’t do much fun, but we got a ton of things done around the house.
On Friday night, we took it easy. We had dinner at the house, and caught up on our shows on list.
I even snuggled with these little rugrats.
Saturday was quite another story.
First thing on Saturday morning, I got up and went to a little store right down the road from my house to purchase my wooden door hangers. I purchase them from there first of all because it saves me time, and makes my husband not have to do all that hard work. I got several for the upcoming holidays as well as a few for just everyday. I typically do several burlap designs, but decided for these holidays I would try my hand at some wooden shapes.
Before the day was over, I ended up priming most of the shapes.
This is my husband painting our cabinet doors for our laundry room and mudroom area. Last year for Christmas, my dad built us cabinets in our laundry room, mudroom, and a bench seat in our front guest bedroom. We have thoroughly enjoyed them; however, we have been missing our cabinet doors for several months – almost 12 months to be exact. Beggars can’t be choosers right? ha…
Earlier in the week, my husband built me the coffee table that I had been wanting so that it matched our end tables. I was swooning over the exact style in a post earlier last week here. I decided that I would go ahead and paint it using the same Annie Sloan paint that I used on our end tables. I absolutely love Annie Sloan paint and the waxes. After painting the coffee table, I decided to get adventurous and refinish another piece of furniture that was in the room. Whew, what was I thinking? Saturday night, we ended up relaxing while I worked on redoing my business site.
Here is a little glimpse at the finish…
On Sunday, we went to church, and came home for a little lunch and a nap. Then we were back at painting the cabinet doors, priming the wooden shapes, and finishing the wax finish on the other piece of furniture. We had a very productive weekend, but somewhat glad to be back to the weekly grind.
Did you have a busy weekend like us?
