My Week of PTO, Part 5

Friday, Day 5

It is hard to believe we had snow just five days ago!  Friday was a put-down-the-windows-and-drive-with-the-sunroof-open kind of day!  I had lunch with a friend, watched a couple movies, and celebrated the annual spring puppy-poo pick-up!

However, I think you will agree when I say that my puttering has improved.  Here are two items handmade in shop classes and given to me years ago.  I have been meaning to paint them forEVER.  My daughter, who is 26 years old, made the shelf unit, and the candle-holder was made by Bubba’s son a couple years ago.

As per suggested by Lois at Living Simply Free, I primed them both with Killz, which I already had in the house, then bought latex paint to finish them off.

I painted the candle holder black and the cabinet white to match the bathroom.  After the first coats, I set them in the window to dry.  Then I went outside to soak up that gorgeous weather!
