Out for the Holidays

We had an early out today at 1:30! That's one of the perks of a teaching job. Today is my mom's birthday and we are having a barn cookout tomorrow night. We haven't had a barn get together in quite awhile so I can't wait to eat some of the great grilling my husband is going to cook. I haven't been working on too much this week but I did put together the black chair that I ordered from target.com. I struggled at first because I put the washers in the wrong place and it didn't go together right. So I took it apart and started over the next day with a little help from my husband. Once I had that little problem solved the chair went together fairly easy. I must say the two items that I purchased from target.com were much nicer than I ever expected. Very well built and a nice paint finish on the desk and chair. I am going to either buy a cushion for the chair or make one. I'm trying to decide on a color for the cushion. Haley and I went to Lowe's and I bought some 8 ft. long trim to go around my bathroom mirror. I am going to paint it black and then glue it onto the mirror. When we made over the bathroom I decided to keep my old mirror and put this trim around the edge to give it a different look. As soon as we get to this project I will post pictures. I hope everyone has great Thanksgiving! Try not to eat too much!
