Skipping Town

I was fix'n to participate in this blog party today.  I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could. However,...

This was the state of affairs on my balcony when dinner was served tonight. Tomorrow we leave for La Jolla. So, I packed up my workshop for another day. It's hard for me to put away a project mid stream when I am enjoying the momentum. Funny thing is, I just had a talk with the Crayons about how "Rome wasn't built in a day." Seems I need to talk my idioms more seriously.

My inlaws gave me some mad money for my birthday and my sweet husband planned an overnight for us in La Jolla. LAUSD conspired to give me Monday off and so it is that I will  be in Mission Viejo Monday night having dinner with Bella and her parents. (Perhaps we will even play with her pink kitchen.)

Anyway, as you can see, I chose to use my free Glidden "Sea Spray" paint. I love how it's turning out and can not wait to show you all the final project.

Oh and seeing as I am a party pooper, I thought I would at least share a cool paint trick I just made up. That is the innards of the drawer from this drawer front coat hanger project. Now I am using it as a shield of sorts for spray painting.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Great idea with the drawer as a shield. I can't wait to see your finished project. I hope you enjoy your time away.
