i like accessorizing

 m2 thought i needed additional accessories for our grocery store run. my choices were silly bandz or a ginormous primary colored wooden block necklace. i think i made the correct choice.

king david ~ by m2

"so, what did you learn at church today", asked john david.

"they went to jessie's house and asked to see his sons. nope, not you. not you either, not you, not you, not you, not you. any more sons. yep, he's the one. then them crowned him with a crown. but to get a crown you had to sit on the teachers lap and i not want to sit on her lap so me not get crowned. i not a king... david at jessie's house was." said m2.

quite accurate don't you think?

this is her paint wheel

m2 and i were heading out the door to take the children to school. "wait ma, i need my paint wheel". she grabbed the colorful deck of waterproof uno cards and ran for the car. ahh, that's my girl. and yes, she is so busy that she shortens mama to ma... like, little house on the prairie ma. where's my bonnet?

before & after ~ i didn't like it

so many hours sanding, priming, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, taping and painting... loved the piece in the garage, moved it into the room and was not wowed. monochromatic does not make me happy. went out of town, hoped to come home and realize it was just what i wanted. did not happen. out came the paint wheel... again. did not even move back to the garage, sanded and repainted right in the landing upstairs.
a little more contrast (drawers have already been tried out in the room) and i think this is it. well, it better be because i am not painting it again.

a dresser in the bathroom?

this is why i need this project finished NOW!

if this is to be her life calling i think she needs a class or two.
