Project in an Afternoon

This bin was a hand-me-down from a client when I worked up in Tahoe for an interior designer. It is highly functional in our very tiny home. It holds all of the tiny toys the little ones play with and all of their board books.

It just was looking a little drab to say the least. I've been wanting to give it a fresh coat of paint for a while. Why I haven't done this sooner is beyond me. My list of things to do, projects to finish, & people to help has me feeling like a sinking ship lately. I just feel like I will never catch up. Zana posted this. She encouraged me to write the list, now I just need to follow through with it. Jo helped to motivate me today. Thanks to two creative ladies I am getting my oars out and paddling like crazy to get this ship going in the right direction again.

I love how it turned out. Just a little pop of color for our little hallway. The girls like it too. Now off to conquer another project on my list! (After I cook dinner, get monkeys ready for bed, help Sloan with homework & clean the kitchen of coarse :)

Last Official Pool Party

Yes it was the last official pool party of the summer.

Homework was done. Snack was finished & the girls went out to play.

What I found was this.

A bunch of giggling girls out in their half deflated pool, covered up with all the different floaties & the slip-n-slide. It was getting chilly as the afternoon wore on. So Abby & Sloan wrapped the girls up in their sweaters.

They lounged in this manner for a good half hour. I think it was a good way to spend the last official day of summer.
