I am bored out of my mind. I am waiting to hear from HR at Ole Miss so that I can fill out paperwork to become a student athlete tutor. The rain is heading our way. I am out of spray paint for my multiple painting projects. I can't shop because I don't have a job, yet. I have finished all but one assignment and my final for my last grad school class. And, my house is clean. I am the type of person that needs a routine and this is not working. I can't take much more. Hopefully I will hear something from HR today or tomorrow morning. On the plus side Kevin is in town this weeked playing ball. The team is hosting the Red & Blue Classic and Kevin's sister, Brittany, is coming down to visit and watch a little softball.
I do have a couple of projects that I have yet to share. I found these two pieces at my favorite store in Oxford, Sugar Magnolia. Sugar Magnolia is set up so that people can sell their arts and crafts, thrifty finds, re-finished furniture, or junk. I found the chair in a shade of white and the table in the most awful shade of baby pink.
The chair got a coat of blue paint and a little sanding to distress. I love it. It sits in the corner of the guest room so that others can throw stuff on it. The table got a coat of brown spray paint and then I had to fix the broken piece. It originally had a wooden piece to hold magazines, books, etc but it was broken. I am not handy enough to add another piece of wood. However, I did have Kevin drill me some holes and I strung ribbon through them. The ribbon is tight enough to withstand a couple of magazines and books for guests. I added some candles wrapped in the same ribbon. My Goodwill cakestand that guests can use for jewelry. And my Goodwill lamp with the shade that is a bit to big but works for now. All in all not to bad for a newbie to refinishing and redecorating.
I am getting a little bold. I linked up my wrapping paper organizer to Allison's, a high school friend, Catch A Glimpse party. I am trying to get the full blog experience. Check her blog out. She is wonderful, creative, and has lots of great ideas. Her blog is Adventures of the Michelena Family,
