Bloggy Hiatus

Okay, so my paint hand got tired. My local Ben Moore store ran out of paint. Aliens ate my paint brush.

No No No No No No No NO

I've decided to give up home renovations for the next two weeks and do something that doesn't include paint, hammers, drywall, plumbing, gardening, or any other home improvement vocabulary. I am running away to play! PLAY. Did you hear me people? I'm taking a well deserved break and am going to go PLAY. Play at the beach! Play with friends. Just play.

I'll be back in September sometime to show you what I'll be working on this fall.

Another Lamp Redo

I'm so excited. I'm going up to Northern Virginia on Wednesday this week to work with a friend of mine. We are going to put some items in some big organized garage sale next weekend. I'm spending some time working on items I want to sell. It might be nice to get some money rather than spend it all the time. Besides, I'm running out of room for lamps!

So, here's what I've been working on today:

The Before:

With Primer:

The After:

Not sure that the shade is perfect, but it will do.

What do you think?

I'll be back tomorrow with a bunch of other items I'll be taking with me north.
