Forecast: 3 days of rain. What better time to start painting the kitchen table? I bought some more paint today (Ivory White by Benjamin Moore) and some primer. By the time I went to the hardware store, the post office, the bank and the grocery store, my starting time had been delayed a few hours. The first coat of primer is on.
I wish the light was better. However, this gives you an idea of how it will look. Tomorrow another coat of primer goes on and then I’ll be ready to paint it (Ivory White is the same color I used on the kitchen island.) Husband already remarked on how much better it looks – I agree.
I received a package in the mail today from my friend Tracie of My Petite Maison. I had mentioned in a comment that I can never find white pumpkins here…so she sent me some! She also sent along some sunflower seeds for my garden and some lavender.
I have to say that I really love white pumpkins and prefer them to the traditional orange color. Gosh darn it – I wish the table was already painted because I can envision them in a pretty vignette in the center of the table. More reason to get a move on! Thank you, Tracie; you are such a sweetheart.
It’s 6:30 pm as I write this and it’s already dark outside! Do not like.
