Every June our family heads off to our church's family camp. We love it and it's a time the whole clan looks forward to. We were given the opportunity to upgrade our room to double the size, but the only problem was that it hadn't had any work done to it. Well, you know us...that's right up our alley.
I painted entirely too much furniture for one week. I've met my quota for awhile...a couple weeks, at least.
We needed a bedframe and I was actually getting ready to leave to go see if the thrift store had one. My middle son had climbed on the camp golf cart and was pretending to drive it. He pushed on the pedal and ran into a pile of the furniture that I had outside painting. His mommy (sigh) had forgotten to turn the key off. My baby had just been over there and he barely missed him. Thank the Lord for just a few scratches on the furniture. Continuing on to the thrift store, my daughter and I came on a wreck and had to take a detour. (
Sometimes I'm positive God stalls us to protect us). We turn down the road my phone directs us to and spot a yard sale. (I need a bumper sticker that says, "This vehicle makes quick U-turns for yard sales."). Guess what was there? My frame for a whopping $5. Isn't that awesome?
The lamp, frame, and mason jar came from the thrift store. Spray paint to the rescue.
The quilt and coral pillow came from the clearance aisle at HomeGoods. The navy pillows, flowers, and clock are from Hobby Lobby.
