On a blog the other day someone asked, "What was your first project?". I really couldn't think of what it was. I have only been in the mode of painting everything white for about 3 years. Then while watching Miss Mustard Seed on Nate it made me inspired to do some words, or a letter, on a project like she was demonstrating. I have done one project before like that..and come to think of it I think it was my first project! When looking at it closer today I could see paint drips and things I would never leave now...but you know you only notice when you are up close so it is okay:) It is amazing how much you learn by doing!
This is how this poor cabinet looked when I bought it....
It was actually a really difficult first project because I had to use wood filler and everything!
I love this B. It is the first letter of our last name and I like to use B's a lot in decorating. I found this B in a "Romantic Country" magazine. I took it to a copy machine and enlarged it as much as I could. Then I cut out the B--taped it on the cabinet and traced around it. Then I painted it. I know there are probably many easier ways to do it, but that worked for me.
The cabinet is so useful because we use it as a TV stand. I have a real "thing" about cords. I hate cords! I hate clutter too. So this little cabinet allows me to hide all that ugly TV stuff- cords, DVD player, the WII, the games..all that stuff! The cable box and the TV are the only things showing.
I am really happy with this cabinet and it's hiding capabilities!
So Gage is doing better but I still decided to keep him home. I figured he should be totally well before going back to a school full of sick kids.
He fell asleep last night with his pirate in his hand.
I decided he could go on our daily walk with my Mother and I today. I think it was good for him to get some fresh air. We got really lucky because the time we spent walking was beautiful..then within no more than 30 seconds after we got in the house it started pouring. That is Oregon for you.
Hope this finds everyone ready for a lovely Easter weekend!
Thanks for visiting!
