one more project...


...off my home improvement to-do list!



it is currently a goal o' mine to do all of my millions of un-finished projects before i start another one. {i have a really bad habit of being ultra a.d.d. w/ projects} so today i decided to finally BE DONE with painting these blasted bar stools!


last year, my mom & i spotted these @ good ol' target for $13.27 each! {i heart smokin' deals/couldn't pass 'em up!} they were originally a very boring & very non-ang eggshell color though, so i painted them red. but because i'm really
smart, {and i say that with every ounce of sarcasm i can muster} it took 5 years, 10 coats, 75 hours of sanding, and a pink garage later, to FINALLY have them look halfway presentable!

that being said, i hafta admit, i'm pleased with the outcome. and everytime i look at them, i will be reminded of the blood, sweat, tears, and many a nap time that went into their loveliness!

Oh my word. Those are amazing! And for the low price of $13.27 and only 80 hours of work each? What a deal! Oh how it comforts my A.D.D. heart to know that there is more than one of us out there who sometimes doesn't finish projects ASAP, and changes your mind like crazy about paint colors as well! By the way, thanks for the compliments on that present, I had actually copied yours, which was why I kind of hated it when it was done because it didn't look like yours. NO really, I scrolled the four miles down your blog to that post, looked at your picture of the present for Amelia, and then looked at mine and almost swore. The end. Your cuteness will forever be the deepest envy of my soul!

Did I inspire you? I'm all about home projects these days too! We finished our ceilings yesterday and now it is on to our kitchen cabinets. P.S. Your bar stools look awesome! I LOVE red!!!

Super cute, girlfriend. Reminds me of the great furniture painting project of 2004...also red. I can relate to a pink garage!

Much to your dismay/un-knowledge, I do look at your blog almost daily! Kind of creepy, eh? (this is commenting on your comment on Mel's page)

BTW-I love everything about your life! I'm 100% jealous.

Okay. PS, and just for the record, I really am jonesing for a house to cute up right now, and it's totally your red stools' fault! :)

HooHoo said...

You're still the most remarkable girl! Way to not only finish the project but take a picture while the kitchen is spotless. I love your great eye for taste and your absolutely cute Angie way of recapping events. You'll always be a favorite of mine.

Ok, now I totally see it- we do have the same house! KB 1800... er something...square feet! Wow! If only every OTHER aspect of my life was like yours, too!

PS- I have a confession to make. I like to put {brackets} around {{everything}} now- and I learned/stole the idea from you. So, here's me- plageristic Alisse, making my confession of the day.

Angie- you are so good at blogging. I have really slacked.. this month is too crazy.
Your stools look like a million bucks... well maybe at least $100 each! Good job. Your house is so cute. I love red too! (Accents, or on the walls!)
