Friends and Kitties!
So, last week Scott while was gone on vacation and I had the house all to myself!
It was verreh, VERREH nice.
An uninterrupted orgy of book-reading happened.
The house stayed TIDY.
I went to bed early and slept late.
Of course, I had the whole The Baby Surgery ordeal, but other than that anxiety (which was pretty much done with by Wednesday) I had such a relaxing week, and I finished Annie Sloan painting/waxing my step back cupboard...plus I did the table! Bonus. I took some quick phone pics before I left for work to show you the finished project:
I'm going to start on the chairs next week. The legs of the chairs and the feet on the table are going to be painted black--I realized that the cream paint shows scuffs far more than I like, so I'll do a two-tone theme, and maybe stencil the table-top as well if I feel adventurous. I'm just thrilled at how nice this turned out.
The other thing I did while hubby was gone was purchase a new, inexpensive, sectional sofa. It's one of those "bycast-pleather" made-in-China dealios but with 13 cats it makes no sense to spend a lot of money. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it is, and the seat height is good so that Scott can get up from it easily with his dicey knees. The kitties moved in immediately, and you can see I made it all snuggly for them with the Leopard Binky. Spoiled brats.
(Pay no attention to the blue towel over the bicycle. That's where Scott drapes it when he comes in from the hot tub and short of thwacking a rolled-up newspaper on his rear end I don't think I can break him of the habit...*sigh*)
I also ordered the rubber cove base for the walls--that's the last thing we need installed to complete our redecorating project. Hopefully by the end of the month it'll be done. Scott says our house feels so nice and cozy again and I agree.
Did I mention the sofa is really comfy?
(and that Scott will pay?)
