Summer is Almost Officially Here!

Here it is, my beautiful fabric, home safe and sound. And ready to be made into a cute summer table cloth!

I can't wait to have it on the table, but other projects must come first for the sake of our sanity in our small space.

Peyton and I have been painting since yesterday afternoon. We have primed the book shelf and ice chest (end table) and are almost finished applying a base of cream paint to both pieces. Which we are planning on covering with white paint and {possibly} distressing.

Everything was going really well until Peyton decided to take a nap on the drop cloth, thankfully only one side of his face got painted {he still looks cute and guilty as can be}

Tomorrow is going to be a full day! We bought some paint and are going to try to paint a natural linen finished accent wall using Valspar Deep Twilight Blue.

We will also be completing the white coat on the book shelf and ice chest, depending on how determined we are...

My husband is a perfectionist, so I know he will not rest until our wall looks wonderful {praise the Lord!} but on the down side, he might not be up for another project in the same day :P

I just hope hope hope that by Sunday our apartment will no longer look like a construction zone, but a peaceful, sane, and settled apartment
...ready for sewing ;)
I guess we will see.
I hope you enjoy your last weekend of Spring in 2011!
