That is the theme for today.It started out SO good. My in laws came over with my two awesome niece's and we all had breakfast. They had planned to stay a while to let the girls play with my kids. I quickly decided to capitalize on a little extra paint time. That is where the good morning ended. It's about 95 degrees and 100% humidity. I started spraying a dresser and ran out of paint AGGGGGHHH. Luckily my wonderful in laws were here and I was able to make a quick trip to Lowes. However, the quick trip that turned into a long trip added to the frustration. I somehow ripped off the part of the sticker with the paint's code. So, after waiting forever we had to do a "color match". I have to say I am still nervous about it to say the least. I thought it was over as I pulled in the driveway I saw my beautiful dresser. It is such a beautiful color ( which Lowes has discontinued) all seemed well. But No, it wasn't over. I guess from the humidity the paint had a ton of runs in it. So now it's nap time for my two monkey's and I am at a stand still. I have to wait for the paint to dry to get all of the runs out. So frustrated seems to be the continuing theme. On a side note when my niece got here this morning she asked me if I was having a yard sale! I said "no" she said "sure looks like it"! That was a kick in the butt to get a few things done and move some stuff out.


  1. I live in Clemmons and makeover furniture too. This humidity has put a halt on my painting. For one I don't want to go out in it and two the drying has been questionable.

    My garage has AC but we keep the vent closed. I may build a paint booth and spray in the garage. I am afraid what that will do to my electric bill.

    Good thing Fall is coming.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Janet! Yes the humidity is slowing things down for sure!
