Missing in Action….
So much has happened since my last post.
That sounds like a lame excuse that you hear everyday, but I really mean it.
My mom, 59 years old, passed away unexpectedly.
So, while I have been attempting to deal with that tremendous loss, I have thrown myself into new adventures.
One thing we always did growing up was camping.
So, we bought a travel trailer.
Always make expensive purchases when grieving.
That was a joke.
I don’t think that is the wisest thing to do, but then again, I never said I was wise!
Now, I can hear your inner thoughts.
They are saying, “A travel trailer? That’s not real camping.”
I say to those thoughts, “This is the ONLY way I could get my husband to go camping.”
So, we are camping. Spending time as a family. And loving it.
BUT, I will not end this post without showing you something I worked on recently.
My girls have a “fashion” Paris type room thingy going on. I pretty much copied a little girl’s room I saw at my girlfriend’s house. I couldn’t help myself, I fell in love with it.
Anywho, my girls had a dresser in between their beds that hasn’t been re-done for maybe 20 years. It was in my house growing up for as long as I can remember.
I didn’t want to paint it out of pure laziness.
So, there it sat, in all it’s ugliness.
Until I discovered a map of Paris at Aaron Brothers.
I love to mod podge.
I took the map, traced the dresser outlines onto the map, cut it into pieces, and went to work!
Now a good blogger would have taken a before pic.
But, here is the after…
I also added some new pull handles.
More projects to come.
THANKS for sticking with me.
