So although I was away, I was presented with a project opportunity, and from what I hear my eyes were huge with excitement about it. So, Saturday morning, we wake up prepared to start boxing up Alex's grandma's things and help out my mother in love in any way we could. Who could have imagined the work that would be done that day. So my sister in love tells me that they have a project that only I can do. Of course I have no idea what they are talking about. So the mission, if I should choose to accept it... very mission impossible huh?... is to paint his grandmother's furniture. Alex's grandmother lived with his mom, and so having it there in it's current state was going to make it that much harder for her. So I jumped at the chance. The only problem was that I had one day to do it, since we were leaving early Sunday morning. So we opted for... you guessed it... SPRAY PAINT!!! It worked great. I went off to Lowes, with my sister in love, to get all the tools we needed. We were totally surprised to see all the furniture laying out on a tarp and my nephew sanding and Bella wiping them down, all ready to be painted. I had to take some befores of everything layed out. (Click on each pick so you can see all the details.)
And here are the afters...
They looked amazing when all was said and done. We decided to go with a green color since that is my mother in love's favorite color. Then we added a little gold rubbing wax to the edges to make everything pop. We finished this project in about 4 hours, but we couldn't have done it without everyone's help. You should have seen that house... it was like there were little worker bees everywhere, buzzing around. Hopefully those are the memories my mother in love will have when she sees all the changes that have been made. Thank you Bibi and Javo, and all the little ones for all your help with this. I couldn't have done it without you.
Okay, I am off to bed. Still trying to recover.
Have a great night.
