“Aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands.”
-1 Thessalonians 4:11 (ESV)
It was a quiet, work-with-my-hands kind of day, and here’s what I can tell you: putting old plant stands to good use is fun, and doing math is not. 🙂
The stand came from a flea market called Copper Possum. It’s in Milton, Florida and I try to stop in every time I visit my Mom. Copper Possum. I love a quirky flea market name, don’t you? It needed some tightening up, but for ten bucks, I thought it would be worth the work. The top is my favorite:
I started a paint project in the sunroom, too. It involved a lot of math.
Too much math.
But, there’s no turning back now. Remember the armoire I painted Gray Cashmere a couple of weeks ago?
I decided to put a
bird buffalo check on it.
I taped off and painted the horizontal stripes today, and tomorrow, I’ll add vertical stripes and *hopefully* have some successful “after” photos to share with you later this week.
I’m following these instructions: How To Paint Gingham-Checked Walls.
SO glad they suggested painting the stripes in that order. Looking forward to doing less math tomorrow. 😉
