After work I came home to a trail of rose pedals....leading to the rest of the flowers that those pedals got torn from! hahah! Really, we aren't huge on the holiday but we do enjoy candy and dinner together. After eating all the caramel candies from the big heart box I went straight to my coffee table I've been repainting. Almost every piece of furniture I have is on its second color. Table started out natural wood, then went to this -
I changed it because the brown paint, for some reason never fully dried and was sticky and starting to peel off. So I decided to go for a white, old worn look that hopefully lightens the room, since that's my new thing. Here is the best picture I could get since it was already night time.
I threw my flowers up there for 2 seconds before Dean could get his hands on them! I think the paint I used was semi gloss, so it is shinier but cleans easier and isn't sticky and it hasn't even been 24 hours. Then I mixed glaze with a dark brown paint and went over all the cracks and grooves, wiping with a damp cloth to make it look worn. Last I sanded all the edges and that's it!
So our Valentine's went something like this-
While I worked on my table Dean drove a monster truck through the wet paint.
The hubby started to BBQ dinner and then the propane ran out.
Dean ripped 4 keys off my laptop keyboard.
Brandon knocked a glass candle jar that shattered all over the bathroom.
Dean peed on the floor.
I had to vacuum 3 times in 3 hours.
Ok I'm a little obsessed with these hilarious cards.
