I guess this is progress

Happy Monday!

We got back from Nashville yesterday evening...we had a great time! The one thing I regret is not taking more than two pictures! Here's what I did manage to get...

Ha! In case you can't tell, it's Matt (my husband) planking on a snorkle lift, LOL!

We visited all the great bars on favorite is Whiskey Bent! So glad we made that random trip!

Here is the progress on my kitchen table:

My goal is to finish sanding this evening so we can get to painting! I definitely underestimated this project. Hopefully painting will be much more fun than sanding has been!

Hope you had a good weekend!

Step 1

My little project I referred to in my last post has begun! Last night Matt and I sanded the table and one of the chairs. It took a lot longer than I had anticipated (and we are not done yet).

Here is a before photo:

Here is Matt sanding the table (we are doing it in our basement which is still a bit unfinished...carpet hasn't been put in yet).

I have no idea how this project is going to turn out but hopefully the sanding will be finished tonight and I can move on to step two!

Here's a project I actually plan to accomplish (unlike the time I said I was going to paint my bathroom or re-do my office). I have a kitchen table that looks something like this:

(Yes, I know it's not very nice to look at.)

My plan is to antique it...I will be sanding it, painting it white and making it look rustic...we will see how this turns out! Photos to come...

I'm in a bad mood at the moment.

Trying to figure out what I can do to turn the day around! I'm thinking these things in the following order:

Fresh Coffee

Listen to Eric Church's new CD on my laptop.

Cross some things off my "to do list".

Go home and read "A Game of Thrones".

Hope you all aren't in a bad mood today!
