Bridesmaids, beware!

While Jason slept in this morning, I got sh*t done. Bridesmaids, you’re only allowed to see this next paragraph or so, then you need to stop reading or else you’ll ruin some of your surprises!

I began the day with spray painting my remaining chairs — I’m hoping to have the 5 remaining chairs polyurethaned by the end of the day so that we will have actual dining room chairs at our disposal again. It will be next weekend before I work on reupholstering these chairs, but at least they’ll be completely spray painted & ready to go.

After that, I got to work on wedding projects… Finishing up the other 50 pack of thank you cards then moving on to putting together a ribbon & lace back drop for our dessert table using ribbon & lace I had around the house left over from other projects. Excuse the quality of theses pictures — as I said, Jason was still asleep so in order to see it hanging, I had to hang it in the bathtub… With the shower curtain behind it, which sort of hides since a lit of the ribbons are light pink & white lace. Still, I love it in real life & am glad that it was such a quick & easy project.

All right, bridesmaids, it’s time for you to get on out of here — love you, but I want you to be surprised when you get your presents next year!

Out of Control

I’m fairly certain I’ve lost my mind… Every time we get 50% done with a project I feel the need to go & add one more thing to our never ending list. Our dining room table project is well underway, but with today being Jason’s 25th birthday I couldn’t really ask him to get to work on finalizing the chairs.

Our Weekend in Pictures

Jason & I both have tomorrow off for his birthday, so our weekend isn’t quite over yet, but so far we’ve spent this weekend celebrating his birthday & his day’s birthday with his parents & one of my bridesmaids/favorite people’s birthday. In between birthday celebrations this is what we’ve been doing: Continue reading

My Latest Project: Step 2

Yesterday I told you about my Craigslist table purchase & plans to renovate it. We’re waiting until Saturday when Jason’s dad comes down to visit before we really start working on the table, as his dad is a piano tuner & renovator guy (official terminology, I know), so he should be ale to provide us with some tools we need, as we’ll as be able to give us an idea of what the best way to fix this table up would be.
