Our car broke down last week, and is going to cost a fortune to fix and will take a further 2 weeks to get the part to fix it. I’m trying to look on the bright side. Not going out means saving money. Which is good. Right? And being at home means I can get all those unfinished projects finished. Another plus. So I’m actually seeing this as a positive thing as it will make me even more thrifty and nifty. 🙂
In fact, I hung my first picture this afternoon using a metal pull ring from a can. Woohoo! Who would have though. It worked a charm, and cost me nothing. 🙂 I had planned to go to the hardware store, which would no doubt have meant I’d come home with a lot more than picture hangers, so we saved all round. 🙂
Secondly, I started work on a project I have been putting off for about a year. It’s my daughter’s dresser. Here is a pic of what it used to look like …
It’s a horrible yellow sort of cream colour and stands out like a sore thumb. Everything else in her room is white, including the matching side table next to it, which I painted a while ago.
Today I put on the undercoat, and applied 2 coats of paint. But you will just have to wait to see the finished dresser and the colour I chose. I’ll give you a clue, it’s not white. 🙂
