That's all I seem to be doing lately! So, I thought I would catch you up on all that has been going on around here!
We hot glued twine around various jars.

The combined orchestras for the Robertsville and Jefferson Middle Schools attended the Dollywood Competition on May 5th. I finally got the video downloaded and will post it next week. Both the 5th grade and 6th grade orchestras won first place!
It took the better part of the morning to get it done because apparently when you replace the vanity it doesn't come with a faucet, or new pipes. But it does come with lots of gratitude from your wife and a sense of accomplishment. Now, if we can just figure out what to do with the floor...
In my excitement of painting the China cabinet, I decided to paint the sides and edges of the livingroom bookcase with the same "bear rug" paint I used on the computer armoire. It looks a lot better in person. I'm glad I didn't paint the whole bookcase the same color. There is such a thing as having too much of the same thing.
Amanada had picked this old trunk up for a project she was working on. She was going to turn the trunk on it's side and make it into a little closet to house all her kids dress up clothes. She was going to use finials http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/Search?storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&keyword=finials&Ns=None&Ntpr=1&Ntpc=1&selectedCatgry=SEARCH+ALL for feet. The trunk is already a little tall for the current couch so I didn't want to use finials on it but I like the idea so I used it on the tv stand below and turned it into a bench in the entryway. I added a coat rack above it. I still need to paint the finials but I like how it turned out. Thanks for the idea, Amanda!
This is my current project. I decided to switch the kids bedrooms. I did manage to move the bunkbeds and switch out the curtains before I lost steam.
