I scored a couple of new lamps for the guest room and they're getting a hit of white paint. I'm trying my hardest to be patient and apply multiple light coats rather than aiming for 100% coverage in one fell swoop. Hopefully I can avoid dreaded drips this time.
You may notice that I'm doing the painting in the far back corner of the yard. B has permanently banished me from conducting anymore spray painting in the garage. The variety of colors that have been over-sprayed on the floor of said garage tells the sordid history of my DIY escapades. I once had to scrape red over-spray off the windshield of his truck so I guess he has a valid point.
While I was in the backyard painting I noticed things are starting to bloom.
|This may look like a certain herb but it's only a Vitex plant.|
Ahhhh orange blossoms in bloom! There is nothing like the sweet fragrance of orange blossoms! It is pure heaven!
I also managed to finish sewing the drapery panels in the guest room and I'm in love!
We capped off the weekend by grilling steaks (which came out amazing and although I fully intended to be the one doing the actual grilling I was immediately disqualified when I failed to remove the old ashes before adding new charcoal. Geez! I never claimed to be Bobby Flay.) and catching up on the new episode of Mad Men.
Sidebar: Did anyone else enjoy watching Joan kick "Dr Rape-y" to the curb? It's so good to see her stand up for herself again! Also, do you think that sleeping pill for Sally will be her gateway into her drug-fueled teenage years as a hippy?
Back to the steaks.
Have a great day guys! I'm heading out to pick up some trims for pillows and lampshades. See ya back here on Wednesday.
