You'll be glad to know that you don't have to sit through another one of these posts for a while. Due to some scheduling conflicts at work, Levi's dad won't be able to take him for the second two weeks of summer visitation.
Breathing is oh so nice.
Levi's dad did get to take him for the past couple of days, and I've been trying to fit a very long to do list into that time. I've worked my tail off, y'all, and I have the burning thighs to prove it. I've painted furniture....lots of furniture. I'm on my 5th coat of paint with this one. Agh....it still needs more!
(I've also painted two dressers, partially sanded another side table, and attempted to paint a stool before
realizing that I had forgotten to sand the darn thing!)
And, I've cleaned other furniture given to us by a friend....lots of cleaning....oh, so worth it. Love this chair! Now if I could just pick a fabric for a cushion (the second fabric is actually a really pretty blue, but it doesn't look it in any pics)....
(Not pictured are an old vanity and side table that with a little elbow grease turned out gorgeous!)
Of course, I've run errands because it doesn't seem to be possible to actually have all of the supplies on hand when I start a project....no matter how much advance planning I've done. And, I've started going through Levi's old baby things. Oh, and the baby room....it's floor, walls, and ceiling are complete. Yay! We've even got a piece of furniture in there....
(Not sure what's up with the way the colors are registering. They look better in person.)
On Monday, the uber ugly and old carpet in my living room is going to be sitting on the curb, and on Tuesday, we should have lovely wood floors in it's place. I am so excited. Thanks in advance to my fabulous hubby!
The downside to all of this progress is realizing that no matter how much gets knocked off of the to do list it is still daunting in its giganticness. Do renovations ever end?
Last but certainly not least, as of today there are eight weeks till my due date! Is anyone else freaking out, because I might be....just a little.
