Some of you may have noticed that I incorporate words of songs into my posts - a lot - too much? lol
I can't help it - for some reason it's how my brain works - it registers lyrics to almost every situation I find myself in - that and the fact that I have to have music playing when I'm doing anything at all.................
It looks like that headboard I so desperately wanted to buy - was not meant to be - one thing or another kept preventing us from picking it up - ( and then someone mentionned it probably had evil spirits attached to it and that's why it was alluding me - and that's all I needed to hear - seriously :)
So in searching around the house for something to actually make - or build - or paint - that I could POST about ( walking around from room to room - with one hand on my hip and the other on my chin - with my eyes darting all around ) I sadly could only find my pile of pallet wood - leaned up against my bedroom closet, and not one to pass up any opportunity - I seized the moment - dragged John off the bed and had him help me out a little.
Suzan says - John could you help me out with something in the kitchen
John says - Sure
Sorry - everyone - John was extremely agreeable to EVERYTHING I asked him tonight - not quite sure why yet - but it's makes for a boring post I know.
I'm using 12 slats for this project - and 2 extra ones to secure it all together to make this
Does anyone else use their kitchen island as a saw horse?
First I dabbed some carpenter's glue onto each slat in a straight line
then I placed the 2 extra slats length wise across it - and John hammered it all in for me
There now we can just turn it around - and bring it to the dining room table - so I can work on my new canvas - I did a quick dry brush of Annie Sloan Pure White - leaving a lot of the wood showing - to keep
it very rustic looking
and then this is where my love of words kicks in - seeing as it's Valentine's Day coming up soon - and I'm really not much of a Valentine's day kind of person (other than I want flowers and chocolate and a card because it's all about me on that particular holiday - )
I thought a love song would be nice on this
My old faithful stencils came out ( both the dollar store ones and the ridiculously priced ones because I want to mix this baby up lol ) and my Sharpie ( hey Sharpie - I've certainly been promoting you a lot lately - maybe you could send me a pack of them??? ) and I went to town...................
I love John Denver - really really love him -
Here Danni - I added a cupid in Pic Monkey just for you - stop bugging me about Valentine's Day projects now!!!
I added a photo with a chair so you see just how large this really is
even when you think you have no food in the house - you can always make soup, right?
hmmm - I may have to paint the ram's head next...................in the meantime wouldn't this make a great
isn't pallet wood just the best for rustic anything?
John says - Sure
What exactly going on around here?
Something's doing - I can just feel it..........................where's the dialogue?
Suzan says - Are you feeling ok?
John says - yeah, why?
Suzan says - Just wondering..........................
Suzan says - Thanks for the help tonight
John says - No problem
Ohhhh boy - there's something wrong
Trouble - we've got trouble
Right here in River City
With a capitol T
That rhymes with B..........................
that stands for BORING.
