The Weekend So Far

Changed the plates on my dining room wall. It needed to feel more like Spring around here.

Hubby fixed and sanded these chairs so I could paint them. First coat is on today...I have fabric for the seats too...




Painted my little galley kitchen a sunny yellow...have the 2nd coat on and I'm in the process of putting things on the wall and you'll have to come back to see the after...the yellow is on the right side of the wall/soffet in case you are wondering...the kitchen was a deep beige.




Also started working in the garage for the garage sale on Thursday if it's not raining!!! Somethings are for HQ and not the garage sale like the mannequin...

So..my back hurts from painting, my hands are tingling as I think I have carpel tunnel and I'm tired...

I will have the kitchen done and the chairs finished by Monday...and the garage done before Thursday...

Hope you are having some FUN this weekend!

Warmly,

deb

You are accomplishing a lot! I have quite a few painting jobs that need doing but haven't had the time. I did work a little in our back yard today so that we can sit on the porch and enjoy it. I will peek back to see your kitchen.

I love a sunny yellow kitchen too! Yellow is my favorite color and I do think it is the best color for the kitchen. It's going to look terrific!
And thank you for your kind comment.

Goodness, you sure are one busy lady Deb. I'm exhausted just reading about what all you've been doing..

I sure hope the weather will be nice for your garage sale this week. Nothing like it is here this morning. So depressing with all the dark and gloomy clouds and rain. Not exactly a nice start to the day is it??

A very busy lady, no wonder your back and hands hurt. Good luck on the garage sale. If you have it in the garage most people will come even if it rains. I know I garage sale in the rain as long as there is no lighting, I take an umbrella.
