Was your weekend as crazy and busy and fun as ours was? The kids participated in the Baptist Hymn Piano Festival (Superiors to both!), a basketball game for her (check her out!), an all-weekend long discipleship event for him, and, it snowed yesterday!
We still held services yesterday morning but the evening service was cancelled due to the weather. I'm pretty sure that this was the first Superbowl in a long, long, long time that I remember being able to watch entirely from home, we're always at church! We enjoyed watching together...wasn't it nice that for the most part everything was very family friendly? I didn't have to watch with a hand on the remote. We cheered for the Broncos, mainly because Wes Welker is an OKC native, but enjoyed the commercials more than the game. My favorites that I saw were Radio Shack, the Cheerios baby & a puppy, Seinfeld, and the 24 promo spots...can't wait! #jackisback! What was your favorite?
I also made some progress on that string of projects I showed you on Friday.
My friend Kris said she couldn't wait to see what I was doing with the gold nailheads. Sorry Kris, nothing extremely fantastic! I told you several months ago how I added nailhead trim to my dining room side chairs, and discussed how the actual nails don't exactly match the trim strip. Over time, that has bugged me! So, I popped off the two chairs that were done and sprayed everything with my old faithful Rustoleum Metallic Brass, then re-attached. And, I finished the other two chairs that I never got around to.
Much better! And as a bonus, I used the same color so now the nailheads match the host chairs and everything ties in much better.
Also, I made some progress on a few parts of Caleb's room - a new nightstand (show you tomorrow!)
and a start to a planked wall. I painted the wall tan so any cracks between boards wouldn't be so obvious. I didn't even cut in around the edges, since those will be covered. I'm hoping to get a good amount done this week. We're kinda just diving in and doing it so we'll see how it goes!
Lastly, I got a few coats on the dresser and will finish it today. As much as I loved the blue color, I breathed a little sigh of relief when this swipe of paint went over the top. Yes, I'm reverting back to my basic black. I really debating doing a high-gloss finish again, but with black pieces you really have to battle dust showing, and I'm hoping that a satin finish will help out just a little bit with that more than the glossy would.
