a Productive Saturday...



wow. I got a bunch done today! I got up this morning and started in on painting the living room. I am switching over to a brown and blue color scheme. I used to have khaki green walls, now I painted them to match the new area rug I just purchased. I looks a lot bluer in the picture! I bought this nifty little painting bucket at Lowe's...it is for doing your trim work....it has a handle on the side to hold on to and it has a magnet inside to hold your paint brush to the side...I loved it. No more bending up and down dipping your brush in the paint bucket, you just carry this around! When I finished up with my living room I cut the grass and did the laundry. Now I think I will go out to the garage and work on getting the new tote and little stool I purchased the other day cleaned up and varnished...I am on a roll! I think it has something to do with the weather...it is 75 degrees and sunny and no humidity!
