Yes, we're all about football in this family. All about football.
Anywho, this past week while my two oldest were at school *insert sad face here* me and my birthday boy got quite a bit accomplished. He's still a really good napper, taking two hours on most days. Yay! So during nap time, I can usually check on all the animals, fold laundry, prepare for dinner, and get some projects done. This week I've been painting. I probably should be working on making us all hats and scarfs since winter is just around the corner, but painting this week it was.
I hit up the thrift store for some things that I could re-paint. Now ya'll know how I feel about old things. I love anything worn and old that has character. I also love sunflowers, roosters and americana decor, so if I can find anything that will work in my house, I'll leave it alone, but sometimes I don't find anything I like. That's okay though because you can always give them a face-lift.
I found these old plaques/ signs for between 25 cents and a dollar. They were perfect! I sanded them all lightly. I was only able to finish one (the little one in the top right). I hope I can finish up the other three this week and then maybe I'll start working on those hats. Maybe.
I also had this paddle that I picked up last year at an antique store for $2. It's been hanging in my dining room and I love it, but I always felt it needed something else.
So of course, sunflowers all around!
I still have many more projects to go on the ole to-do list, but this was a good start. Hope ya'll had a great Saturday too. :)
