See that house in the background? That where some amazing friends and neighbors lived for the past year... right in our backyard. They are now on their way to California. Such is military life, having to say goodbye a little too often. But such is military life, getting the chance to meet wonderful people and make friends all over the country. It's a mixed blessing for sure. I'm feeling a little blue whenever I look at their empty house, but we have the happy distraction of a visit with my parents - starting tomorrow - yay!
Next. Remember the chair from Goodwill? It is blue now! In a completely amazing stroke of luck I happened to find a quart of paint in EXACTLY the color I had in mind, at Lowes, on the reject paint rack. $3 for a quart of primer-paint (Valspar, if you were wondering) that would otherwise cost $14 to have mixed. Which I was completely prepared to spend, because I knew what I wanted, but oh man, I can't believe my good fortune on this one.
Now I just need to recover the seat, which should be pretty quick once I decide on the fabric. I'm thinking of piecing a few together, and this is going to go up at my desk in the playroom/sewing room, and after Christmas I'm going to do some more sewing for that room to recover a lot of the mismatched items in there. It's going to be great. More soon!
