To-Do List

Sorry I have been MIA for awhile.  You can pretty much expect this every year at this time.  Because I am a teacher and it is BACK TO SCHOOL time if you haven't noticed all the school supplies available for you to purchase in stores.  (Although I did notice that Hobby Lobby got a jump on CHRISTMAS ALREADY  for Pete's sake.  I meany really, who buys wrapping paper in August.) 

So here are a few projects I have been working on.  Or at least thinking about starting on.

Not sure how I want to paint this FREE hutch that I recently acquired from my neighbor.  The knobs will have to be changed.  I already bought pink crystal knobs, but I was sort of thinking of trying out Antibes Green Chalk Paint from Annie Sloan. 

This is the mirror for the bathroom sink in my new studio.  It will probably be painted the same blue as on the chandelier since I got a gallon of OOPS paint for five bucks. 

My grandpa got a new table so I got this one.  I am almost certain this was the table we had when I was little.  My parents must have swapped out a long time ago and I never really noticed that we got a much bigger table and large hutch.  Huh.  I may leave this one alone for awhile.

Have you seen these monsters in the Ballard Design catalogs?  Love them.  But not the price.  The big one (the one I would want) is $400.  So when I saw this at Goodwill I pushed and shoved it in my car.

It has plexiglass inside.  Must have been used to frame a poster.  I am going to paint right on the plexi glass with chalkboard paint and make a ginormous chalkboard. 

Here it is with a bucket (not a miniature bucket) so that you get an idea of how large this thing is. There was an even bigger one, but I did not think it would fit and I was right.  I could barely get this one in without whopping my kid's head off.
 I may even leave the frame gold.  I LOVE this thing!!  And the best part is it was only fourteen buckeroos!!!
