Today I was supposed to go to jury duty. Thank the Lord when I called in the night before I didn't have to report! So what's a girl to do on a day off? All the projects in her dreams! Or on her to-do list :)
Today I "glazed" a dresser I've been painting to go in my craft room. It was actually very simple to do. I unfortunately don't have any before/ pictures of that. The dresser was a garage sale gem I found last week for a whopping $30. I already had the paint and I bought some glaze for $5. I was going to buy new hardware but decided I liked what was already on it, score! So, that project was finished by 9am.
After that, I found myself being called to Hobby Lobby. It really is a calling. What can I say? $100 later I had enough stuff to occupy me for the rest of the day.
First, I finally picked out some curtains for the craft room. We've been in this house for over a year now and I am still working on ''finishing" rooms. This feels like a forever project, though. I LOVE nesting in my home.
Then, I worked on some letters I want above our bed. Our bedroom is not very decorated. I have had lots of ideas but today I finally decided. I bought some cardboard letters at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each. I already had spray paint and the glaze that I used to make them look like metal, sorta an anthropologie look.

Then I moved into the dining area. I found these awesome jumbo silverware at Hobby Lobby of course and fell in love with them.
