It's a borrowed camera from school, and I'm blogging during my conference hour. If I get fired, I will of course blame you. Hope you don't mind.
Aside from feeling sorry for myself over my computer and camera woes, I have gotten a couple of things accomplished. Remember how my grandparents gave me a bunch of furniture? Well, here's how the dining room chairs looked.
I had to take a flame thrower to it to get through the 30-year build up of Pledge, but it turned out nicely.
I spray painted this one, but I have since turned to my favorite paint. I think it'll just be too expensive to cover 5 of them with spray paint. I also used painter's dropcloth that I had left over from Thanksgiving. If a tutorial is needed, I can provide that...just not now. We're running on bare minimums here, remember?
I will, however, let you in on an inexpensive and MUCH needed tool/secret. I purchased this electric staple gun for $30 at Lowe's, and it's been a dream. I just couldn't imagine doing all those chairs with my manual gun.
See the two boxes propping up the gun? That's my new hard drive that Dell just sent me. On my 9 month old computer. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Speaking of light (bad segue, I know), here's what Santa/mom bought me for Christmas. I'm quite positive she was surprised by my request, but I was as giddy as a school girl when I opened it! I can't wait to show you all the projects (including nailing my finger to the wall--I'm sure) I'll do with it!
