no i am not going to rehab. i recently rehabbed a table from the ikea damaged discount bin.
yes that really is how cheap i am (and how much i like a home improvement project)
this is what i started with
decent but nothing all too special [good bones as AMC would say]
that dent made it really ugly. so i got me some wood putty and like the lesbian in training that i am i did some magic
and it turned into this:and it sat and looked real UGLY like this for a REALLY long time.
then one day i went to lowe’s and bought paint and primer just like they said to here.
after one coat it was mad UGLY
so i smacked on 3 layers of the perfect grey.
(ignore my crap in the background, life is hard for me)
not too light, not too blue, and NOT TOO GREEN! so many were green and UGLY
somun’ mad ugly just became my favorite piece of furniture ever and with some nice ascents from target and ikea its bea-t-ful

oh i am just so sorry to have been absent lately. my life has recently become ridiculously glamorous. my budding status as one of l-burgs must eligible has had me so busy with many suburban Friday night happy hours and my status as one of virginia’s must amazing teachers has had me busy as a little bee.
oh in reality
drinking a lot with my newest gal pals kk, nf, and js (who is ALSO a miami grad), and crying while grading the papers of 13 year-olds who can not add, subtract, multiply or divide. and not working out. word.
oh and cleaning up dog shiz b.c grandpa got into the closet where i keep the dog food and 15lb box of milk bones from costco and while i was at work he decided to eat about 2lbs worth. THEN SHIT ALL OVER THE NEWLY CLEANED CARPET (b.c i a v.lesbian move i rented a carpet cleaner and showed Stanley steamer how its done).
in other news…
i’ve been taking this extra class to improve my classroom management (because i cry after school every day and some times during the day) and we watched this. and it made tears come to my eyes because he is SOOO right.
anyway you should be crying right now and if you are not well you need a soul.
