Sorry to be such a lazy blogger and not have Share a Site Friday today. I am going to have to put it on hold for a few weeks as today I am in the midst of preparing for Lucketts and next week I will be there actually setting up. I am just SO exhausted. My legs and feet ache, my back hurts and I am just covered in dirt and paint (waaa waaah waaa)!
Yesterday, I worked on the farmhouse cabinet. A coat of white, a coat of blue and finally, a coat of gray. I hope to sand it back today and see the layers.
I also made a template for new glass shelves to fit inside this lovely old china cabinet. It was difficult as it has the curved sides. I took a piece of poster board and placed it on top of the cabinet and folded it down around the edges to create the shape and then cut it out. I placed the poster board inside the cabinet and trimmed it to fit – which took ages and ages and ages. I then hunted my entire house for a piece of long cardboard. I found it in the basement (a box of leftover wood flooring from our family room) and cut it into the poster board’s shape.
I grabbed my cardboard template, jumped into my car and raced over to the glass shop only to see a sign on the door, “Closed for Lunch 12-12:30” and it was 11:54…sigh. This process literally took all morning and due to hungry glass shop workers, part of my afternoon.
And… it’s my birthday! I am just getting so dang old. Maybe this is why my body aches all over?! Oh, and a shout out to my husband who spent yesterday on a bus full of fourth graders. He took my place as volunteer on Sophie’s field trip to St. Mary’s County, MD. A torturous 9am to 6pm field trip. I just couldn’t take a whole day off. He is such a trooper!
