Labour of love

No lectures, please. I know I procrastinated longer than I promised. Yesterday got so crazy. I always have this grand notions of what I will accomplish on Joshs days off. usually 30% of it happens, lol. Yesterday I learned how to use the sewing machine. I also tried some new paint. Baby steps, guys. So, without further adieu, here are a few pictures of what we've been up to :)

We finished the chicken coop. We still have to paint the outside, but it's good enough for them to live in for now :) They have a TON of room, and even have faux hardwood floors. We're fancy.

Just totally not my style. I wanted to transform it into something fresh, light, and happy! So, I decided to paint it white, and recover the fabric. No big deal, right. Wrong. If I could go back in time, I would have just bought a new one. THis was such a pain, and it's definitely not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination. It was my first real project, too. A learning experience, for sure. DSC02606 See how the seams are loose and uneven :/ I hate that. DSC02603 Here is my next project. I got these chairs at a thrift store for $2.50 each. They need a lot of work, but they are really big and chunky and I love them. The plan is to paint them white and make some awesome pads for them. After the glider, though, I may just buy the pads, lol. DSC02584 So... that's it for now! We did do a really fun science experiment today, and I might just post pictures in a bit. Crue is almost done with his grapes, so 'tis all for now. -C

  1. Good Job Mama!d
    Now, I really want to be your neighbor!

    I bought a package of chair pads at wal mart for the train table. They also had bigger pads and rolls of foam for padding. It was all fairly reasonable.

    I love those chairs, and $2.50! What a steal!
