I'm discovering how A.D.D. I am. I'm working on a very long list of things to do/clean for our house. I find myself jumping from one thing to the next without necessarily finishing the first task.

One thing I had on the list was to find or make a headboard for our bed. I found some awesome old shutters at the habitat restore in Anderson. They were painted a very pretty green and the back is a deep blue.


I sprayed the shutters down with bug spray (in case anything was living inside) and scrubbed them with wood soap and some sandpaper.

I think it turned out nicely. I will probably paint them white someday, but like the beat up green look for now....and yes, that is a belt around an old pillow. I saw it in an antique store as a decoration and found that we had a pillow just like it, so I put one of my old belts around it. Jack of course made fun of it.


I'm also working on (with much help from my dad) an old record player/radio cabinet. This thing has been sitting in the attic for a looong time. It's extremely heavy from all the hardware inside. We are gutting it and making it useable storage space.



I also just finished up painting our fireplace. It was pretty dingy. I painted it white and scuffed it up with a piece of asphalt I found in the driveway.



I was on a roll from doing so much around the house that I decided to challenge myself in the kitchen. I made us some coconut shrimp for dinner. I must say it was quite tasty and a lot cheaper than Outback's.


I'm off to another busy and too short of a weekend! Maybe some painting will get done! have a good one!
