Potpourri

A few weekend happenings…

I found some adorable Cynthia Rowley stationery/office stuff at TJ Maxx. I think my little cubby will look a lot cheerier and brighter now.

I can’t wait to start filling the loose notes with tweet ideas.

I started working on a little chair re-do but ran out of paint before I could finish the job. I found some really pretty fabric at the antique market last weekend (1.5 yards for $2.99) and used them as my inspiration for livening up a pair of ho-hum chairs.

Before:

Not bad… but not really wowee and I needed them for my dining room table/around the house.

During:

After shots to come.  My intention was to paint the chairs cream to match my dining room table and chairs but after 3 cans, one chair still wasn’t adequately covered. Would it look bad to paint them that sort of robin’s egg blue color in the fabric? Or should I keep persisting with the cream?

Susie and Weezy came for a visit this weekend and Tater and Weezy are just the best of pals now! I took about 5,000 pictures of them sharing Tater’s cozy bed (they like to wad up the pad at the bottom of the bed to make a pillow for head propping.)

So… how was your weekend? Anybody got any fun projects planned?

  1. You’re probably sick of my two cents, but seriously: ROBIN’S EGG BLUE! You will love it. Painting my dining room chairs a la Monica Gellar was the best thing I ever did.

  2. The pictures of the babies sharing Tater’s bed make me teary-eyed. I am so happy they’re friends and hate to leave and separate them :(
