I’m miserable 

It has been warm here, then below freezing, warm again, and today it’s raining. My sinuses are really giving me grief. And, getting my projects done with the weather and a reoccurring sinus headache? Impossible. 

A few good things have happened for sure. My favorite uncle remembered he got a $25.00 Home Depot card for Christmas…and he GAVE it to me!!! Which is basically free money. Awesomeness!!

So, after a nap (and a couple of Motren washed down with Gatorade) I was ready to rock!

I seriously cannot express how excited I was. I honestly only needed a couple things and when it was all said and done? My bill came to exactly $25.99…so I only spent a buck of my own money…Who wouldn’t be thrilled?!?

I talked in my other post about Wipe on poly and that is absolutely what I wanted to buy for the funky chair.  Just in case you missed it.😜

I watched a great little video about it on YouTube by user My Random Reviews 411. Now, for what I am currently doing? This is much more complex….my work is just easy peasy little piddling…but the video certainly gives all the important information (which is also on the back of the can) and there is a Kitty at the end so it’s worth the watch.

Of course I got distracted while in there I might have a couple of other ideas about the house…maybe.

At any rate I found what I needed and I might have picked up a stack of paint swatches to match this color pallet  

 I have been loosely following. 

I went with the gloss because I just don’t think a matte finish will be my taste in painted wood…I kind of worry it would look murky and I’m just not down with murky painted wood. 

While I was there I picked up some wooden dowel rods for another project that I found on Pinterest. Rachel Paxton has an absolutely brilliant idea for DIY curtain rods. I found them charming, affordable, basically irresistible. I doubt my home with sport any other style rods again. The project is for another day. But, with the ability to acquire my items basically free? “In the cart, My Darlings!”  

No matter what anyone says I got my money’s worth…granted I only spent a buck of my own….That totally makes me giggle with glee. 

When you have big ideas and a small budget? It’s the little things that count!

Single, thrifty, Mom, with more hobbies than I can list. Restless and creative, my mind is usually three projects ahead of my actual accomplishments. Pastimes include eating chocolate and watching DIY videos. I'm not an actual blogger... or writer for that matter. I don't even expect many to read what I have to say. 😁The blogging is just a way to expel energy when I am unable create and my brain is flooded with creative thoughts. I have been diagnosed with OCD (and treated for it) but the mind still processes in the same old jumble of urges. I get restless easily. SO! Please forgive any errors! 😬 I will always try to give credit and post links. Though I will admit that often I have to proofread several times before I get everything exactly correct. And, on a final note...I am an idea double hacker...It's chronic. Most often I get a base idea from someone and alter the hell out of it to fit my needs/vision....it doesn't always work out for the best...but I end up doing it every. single. time.
