Turn Your Thinking Upside Down

I saw this idea in a magazine.  I think it was Family Fun magazine.  Anyway, thought we'd add humour to our neighbourhood.  The snow around here isn't too conducive to snowman building though.

First Furniture Redo

She's tanned.  She's petite.  She's curvy.

No I'm not talking about a lady, I'm talking about our side table.  Doesn't everybody give their furniture a gender?

Well anyway, she was tan but now she's lime green, or chartreuse if you want to give it a fancy named colour.

Now I did this during the summer.  What I learned is you never should let painted furniture dry during a summer evening.  Reason: No See-Ums.  Yes, when I went back to check it's progress, there were all these bugs stuck to my work.  Why didn't I think about these bugs?  'Cause I didn't See-Um (har har).  So I grabbed a pair of tweezers and hoped they would come off that way but I ended up spearing them instead and little bug guts graced the table.  I then just wrapped some tape around my hand and picked them off that way.

Our living room was in desperate need of some colour and I'd say that's no longer an issue.

Should I do it? Do I dare?

I have been following many blogs for a few years now and so I decided I should jump on the wagon too.  The only thing is, I am so not computer savvy.  I'm already running into trouble with a thing called a favicon. I guess it's to be expected to have hiccups along the way.

I'm hoping that this is the push I need to get to all those house projects I've been meaning to get to for so long.  You are officially invited to my little corner of the world.
