My Newest Adventure!

17 Sep

This weekend was so much fun, because not only did I work a party and make some extra cash, but I also started a project that I’ve been putting off for wayyyy too long…

Can I just take a moment to brag about how amazing my man is? I’ve been talking and talking and talking about how much I want to start my own side buisness painting and building furniture. Well, Thursday night he came home and told me that we were going to Lowe’s and that it was time to start putting some action behind my words!

We picked out paint and other supplies, and Saturday I worked several hours creating what is now one of my favorite pieces of furniture in our apartment. There is something really emotional about creating something so beautiful out of something so old and worn. I honestly had such a great time and I am beyond thankful to have some one in my life who is so incredibly supportive!

Here’s how it turned out:

So yeah… these aren’t the best quality photos, but I think you can see the dramatic change! I learned so many things from these ”experiment” pieces, and I think that next time things will turn out even better.

Did you have a good weekend? I hope so!
