This weekend Oldest and I had to bite the bullet and get into a differ mindset to accomplish goals we both wanted so very much. For Oldest it started abt a week and half ago. Well really it started last year when all of his friends were embarking on their next exciting milestone of growing up. Oldest would come home every day asking me when it would be his turn. Soon I would say. Soon.
Oldest will be 7 in March and is the last of his friends to start loosing his teeth. He came home from school abt a week and half ago and told me to check his front teeth because they hurt when he was eating lunch. I checked and not only did he have one but TWO loose teeth on the bottom. The dentist said the top two would be the first to go. Guess not. Oldest woke up this morning and The Hubster told Oldest to show me his troubles. His bottom tooth was hanging on just by a thread. He would NOT allow us to pull it out but kept complaining it hurt so I said just keep wiggling it. Well after abt an hour and half of that he called The Nana & The Papa to tell them the exciting news though the tooth still remained attached. The Papa made him a deal. Deal was he would send Oldest $20 if Oldest allowed me to pull his tooth while The Papa was on IChat.
|After last weeks debacle of rub on swirls I finally just decided to do it! I put aside my fears and decided to just attempt painting them on.|
|The rub ons for some reason came with printed swirls as well so I just cut them out and then ran a pencil on the back of them. After that I tapped um where I wanted them and then traced over them hoping it would show up.|
|It did but was still pretty light.|
|Since I was going to be using a darker paint color I just went right back over the design with a pencil so I could clearly see what I was painting.|
|I used just normal craft paint that you find at HobLob or even WM. The brown is actually Folk Art Antiquing Glaze and then I used a Camel color on top while it was still wet so they would blend.|
|I was even able to start on the sides as well! One more side to do and then it is on to the drawers. Those have me stumped. I am hoping to have it all completed by Thanksgiving.|
Hope y'all are having a great weekend and thanx for stopping by!
P.s. Silly me was thinking BNOTP Metamorphosis Monday was the HomeGoods edition but that is not till next week so I am linking up today to share my progress. Head on over for some awesome inspiration posts! I spend way too much time looking thru them all!;)
