Being your own boss has its advantages, however being a one-girl show means that getting the work done takes a bit more time. I do get help from the muscles in the family when it comes to the heavy stuff, thank God. And working from home means that home doesn’t always stay nice and tidy, like I prefer. Of course, blogging about the house means that y’all ONLY get to see the pretty and clean rooms, right? Not today….
here is the bare naked truth:
MY DINING ROOM IS A MESS!
***GASP!*** is right! OH NO!
Yup, oh no! Cannot be persnickety right now while I get Christmas bagged and tagged for the store. (And I did find a few little pixies to sell – cannot keep everything!)
Found this little crochet soldier, too. Now I need to be off and beating to the tune of my own drum!
Chow for now!
NOTE: Sarah asked on the last post if I applied the dark stain before I painted. Sarah, the first step is the paint and then add the stain to the areas that you wish to darken. The nice thing about the chalk paint is that any imperfections can just be sanded off. If you think there is too much stain, then use a fine sandpaper to remove it. Play around with it and have fun!
