a sad little story...

once upon a time there was a rookie on a back-ho...


who was also advised by his pops where "things" where and where "things" needed to be...



unfortunately pops was just a little off with where EXACTLY those "things" were



oops!
no water at our house for a while... and then when there was water it came out the color of that fabulous red dirt! which clogged all but two water sources.... hmmm
not so much fun.
: (
one project that turned out a little better was the hutch:
i absolutely LOVE this now!

it still needs new hardware (knobs and such) and glass for the front doors... which i temporarily replaced with mat board covered in Martha Stewart roll paper (can we say clearance! love that!) the real plan is to buy 2 pieces of glass and cut our monogram on the ol' wishblade out of sticker paper and use those as masks and frost the rest of the glass... mmmm... can you picture it? i see it in my head and it looks oh so pottery barn... ahhhh.... but until then these will have to do!

repaint-hutch-project...

officially checked off the list!

latex paint in that sprayer from the last post... and um.. we were pretty lazy to be honest.. we didnt even sand it or anything, we just went for it, i think it was just stained/varnished wood originally...boRinG!
