First Time for Everything

Would you believe me if I told you that a couple days ago I used spray paint for the first time?

I'm perfectly aware that spray painting everything under the sun has been a fad for years.  But I just never really had a reason to try it before.  People make it out to be this super cheap quick-fix.  While I'll agree it's quick and easy, it's really only cheap if you already have spray paint on hand.  And we never did before.

But over the summer we bought a hefty supply of spray paint in white and red so we could paint our mismatched table and chairs.  Umm... but we never got around to doing that.  Something about having to stand out in the heat and humidity for more than ten seconds made us lose our nerve.

Anyway, this project was indeed quick and easy.  And I love how it turned out.  But no peeks at the finished product yet.  I have bigger plans for these little red lovelies.  :)

And, with that, I'm off to work like a dog to prep for the Feb Brown Bag that totally sneaked up on me is tomorrow night.

Prepping for Brown Bag (especially the last-minute stuff I'm down to now) means a million little details.  So, to keep my brain in order, I made myself a little to-do list.  I wrote very small on a sticky note.  Make that three sticky notes.

See ya soon.  :)
