Prim friends, I have been so busy... too busy to keep up with blogging. I miss posting and I really miss seeing what all you are up to!
This is what I am in the middle of right now... painting.
Here is one of my dining room walls before.
Here it is after one coat of dark red paint, and still wet too. Only one coat! I couldn't believe how well it covered, I was seriously amazed!
So far the second coat has been applied and I could really stop there, it looks so good. But I haven't used near the paint that I thought I would so I am going to put on a third coat tomorrow. Can't wait to tear off that blue tape and see that dark red against the wood. When I'm done, I'll be back with some more before and after pictures.
This is what else I've been doing... spring cleaning in my kitchen! I was debating on whether I should share these pictures with you or not because I don't want you to see my messy kitchen haha, but I am going against my will and hoping that this will spur some motivation in someone. I opened every single drawer and cabinet in my kitchen.
I spent two full days taking every single thing out, wiping out each drawer and shelf. Then re-organizing every single small appliance, dish, and utensil. As I finished that drawer or cabinet, I closed the door. That was a wise thing to do because although it was a very tedious job, it was so nice to see that I was making progress!
I'm actually amazed it only took 2 days but once I got going, it was so fulfilling to finally get things organized! I am a Pampered Chef junkie (also a Scentsy junkie, lol) and have bought a lot since we moved into our home 4.5 years ago so it was very nice to get everything together now instead of all over the kitchen wherever I could find room.
I'm so excited that I now have sections for: baking, entertaining, and holiday items.
Other than these home improvement projects, I have been extremely busy with my kids and their many school projects. I will only bore you with one of the projects. My daughter and her friend took 1st place at their school with their Rubber-band Vehicle in Science. The top three advanced to the Tulsa Engineering Challenge that is put on by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. They went up against many, many boys and they were the only all girl team and guess what? Those girls got 1st place in their division and won $100 (to share)! We were so very proud of them because they built it, my husband was just there to supervise. Amariah is the one on the right.
Oh, I've also been antiquing on a weekly basis and have so many things to share... as soon as I can get to it all and get it unpacked!
Have a delightful week my friends~
