Here comes the sun, do dee doo doooooo!

Sun sun GLORIOUS sun! At long last a full day of sunshine. You all know I have been patiently (ok so maybe not so patient) for good painting weather. Well thank you Baby Jesus! And Mother Nature. It's about time! So, what did I get up to today? Well, I had so much fun completely refinishing the chair a co-worker gifted me. Thanks to a wonderful palm sander from Mr Cupcakes best buddy I wsa ready to start. Sanded and primed I was finally ready for paint! My paint and primer combo: KILZ primer (followed by light sanding) and my weapon of choice...white spray paint! GLORIOUS!

Rocketgirl came by for a visit and we decided to high tail it to Fabricland to pick out my seat cushion fabric. I had actually been looking at this fabric the last 2 times I was there...lovin it up.

Here she is BEFORE her makeover:



After:








Up close and personal with the cutest turquoise fabric:



I also worked on my desk-I was SOOOO productive today (well, the house work had to wait) but look at all this goodness!! Primer-ed!!



And if all this wasn't enough excitement...MY BFF is currently in labour!!! I can't handle the waiting!!!!! I think she is having a girl...but soon we will know for certain. I can't wait to meet this bundle! CANNOT WAIT!!!

Back to reality tomorrow for 4 shifts...Have a beautiful weekend :)
