Weekend Happenings

Hello all!

I hope that you have had a relaxing weekend as Paul and I did!

We started off the weekend getting our library cards from the D.C. Public Library. The public library has an awesome program that allows anyone with a Northern, VA address to have access to all of their books, e books, and audio books.

What I like best are the e books. I have been able to find so many that are brand new and I would have had to pay $10+ dollars for! They also have a huge selection of audio books which is great for long car rides.

Gold Dipped Leg



Paul and I spent most of the weekend working on a table we are planning to sell on Craigslist. It is a deep, purple with gold ‘dipped’ legs. This is our first project where we did a dipped look. It turned out better than we thought!





Earlier this week we finished a dresser/desk that turned out really well!

What do you think?







Also, while I was babysitting Saturday night Paul even worked on a dresser that he did in peachy pink ombre. I was so surprised and it turned out SO well! This will be a hard one for me to part with and sell.

I guess its a good sign that everything we paint I tend to want to keep ahah.




Rock Creek Park

The weather today was perfect! We took full advantage by going on an afternoon hike at Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. The park was gorgeous. It was hard to believe that this little slice of nature is just 5 miles away from the White House.

On our way back in from the city I wanted to go to the mall since we hadn’t been in forever.

At the mall The Body Shop was having the best deal, buy three items and get three free! I could not pass that up. I was able to get some new products to try and even got something for Paul!

I will do a haul post on everything I got in the coming week.

I hope you too have had a wonderful weekend! Let me know what you did in the comments!

    Awesome job with the furniture! I’ve been thinking of doing a gold dipped look on a coffee table I have – now I definitely know I want to after seeing yours! 🙂
