It all started with this:
This homely, piece of crap coat rack. We’ve hated this thing FOR-EV-ER. So I got the idea to purty it up:
For a little leftover paint and $4 in knobs – not too shabby. Or maybe Shabby Chic?
Then I got the painting bug. And I needed to do the living room:
A little paint and some new accessories (that I already had) and voila! Not so vanilla anymore!
Here’s a few more:
And that metal scroll-y chandelier-y looking thingy that was over the fireplace? That got a fresh new look and a nice new home:
It’s now hanging over Miss P’s bed. Just gives her even more reason to believe she really is a princess….
I didn’t forget about Bugga. I made him a growth chart outta some leftover MDF from my secret project (more on that very soon):
I have some cars ready to be glued onto this, but I have a feeling Bugga would try to pry them off. He likes to put this on the floor and use it as a race track.
There are some other things going on too, but I need to make some progress before I post them. I will however show you the FAN-FREAKIN-TASTC headboard my Dad and I found at the flea market for $5!!!!!
I L♥ve, L♥ve, L♥VE this thing!
I really wanted to make an upholstered headboard for the bedroom, then I saw this beauty! How could I pass it up for $5???? So I dragged Ivy to the fabric store with me yesterday afternoon and now I have a PLAN – mwahahaha!!!!!
I have been keeping up with my workouts in case you were wondering. Not doing 2-a-days frees up some time. The only thing that sucks about doing P90X as my primary workout is that my cardio is taking a nosedive.
I know, I know. I’ve read all the articles about how cardio is bottom of the pyramid for weight maintenance/loss, but kickboxing and the E got hard! I haven’t set foot on the treadmill at all this year either…..
Speaking of kickboxing.
Either I’m hardcore – or I bruise like a week old pear:
I’m gonna go with the latter…
So today’s agenda is a double-P90x this am and Kickboxing tonight. I skipped Chest & Back yesterday to go to the fabric store. Gotta say, the fabric store was WAYYY more fun!
Right now I’m fueling up with this:
3 egg whites, La Tortilla Factory wrap, 1 oz deli turkey and Chipotle Laughing Cow Wedge. TONS of protein.
I gotta get my workout done early cuz my Momma’s coming over. She asked me to help her with some weight training (that and she wants to use my E and treadmill).
Ta-ta for now homies!!
*****OH WAIT!! I ALMOST FORGOT THE BIG NEWS!!!******
