Manic Monday

Coming to you from my office at work... remember I had to work today? Apparently my body forgot too as it dragged all morning long!

What a super busy, yet productive and low key weekend!

Friday: Headed down to the ball park to watch a local baseball game.

Saturday: M went in to work in the morning and then in the afternoon we started refinishing the bedroom dressers! We decided against doing the bed yet, since we have figured out what we want to do yet with the headboard! I took better pictures of the before, but here is a glimpse of what they no longer look like:

This was from before we even did the floors! Check out that hardware! These antiques needed some love! However, we were terrified to refinish them because they are antique and we are the 4th generation to have them in our family!

Then along came good old Rust-Oleum:

Granted we weren't doing cabinets... it worked almost just as well on dressers and provided an alternate solution to refinishing them.

I will be doing a post to explain just what we did, along with before and after pictures. But I will say that we are definitely happy with how they have turned out!!

The whole process is timed and we managed to finish last night! We even filled the drawers back up and put on new hardware!!

I managed to cross a few things off the good old to-do list!

Sunday we had to take my SUV back to the dealership to get the cruise control fixed - we knew about this when we bought it. So we stopped at Costco on the way home.

We also managed to sneak in a walk before it really rained - it was spitting during our walk.

So today I drove the beast aka the explorer to work. - I am sure I have mentioned before that it hates me...

I also found a few more to-do's on Pinterest over the weekend!
