This week has been absolutely beautiful- finally out of the 100's - the windows are wide open on this lovely Sunday morning, and the curtains are blowing in the breeze. Perfection. It feels like fall- finally..fall.
I am probably jumping the gun a bit, considering next week will be in the lower 90's. I don't care. My pumpkin spice and apple cider candles are out, I've switched out a few of my more summer-esque decor with a bit of burnt orange and dark greens..and I"m contemplating putting away the shorts and tank tops. I should probably wait..
We did a bit of painting this weekend..and I must say I am happy with the results. Quite a while ago, I blogged about the two ugly end tables we purchased at walmart..target..something of that nature- and what in the world could we do with them! well ...earlier this year we did something. we bought a lovely yellow paint with every intention of painting those suckers. ...5 or 6 months later I am happy ( and a bit embarrassed) to say that we finally got around to that! the weather was right, the wind wasn't too strong, and we needed to be productive!
Here are a few pics- they look super blurry for some reason..not enough light i guess..?
1st end table by the door with our super awesome vintage lamp (one of my favorite antique store finds!)
Here is the other end table- just a closeup. Yes. that is a Star Wars record in the background... " The story of Star Wars" to be exact..one of my husbands prized possessions..
I think I am pretty darn happy with the way the color came out. that doesn't meant it will stay that color forever ;)
on my next post ( you know, in a few months..) I will FINALLY post pictures of our anniversary trip to colorado! yeah. that was in june ;)
here is a preview:
