Hey K2 Kanakuk Friends,
Well, project month so far is going great. Here is my completed list:

1. dresser: this was quite the adventure. LOTS AND LOTS of sanding. And then more sanding. And then yet some more. Just keep sanding! So we did that. Then we stained with 2 coats letting is sit and penetrate for days. Then we added the polyacrylic stuff. Then we put it all together to notice the drawers didn't pull in and out easily. So more sanding, staining and now we are done. It's now hanging out and getting all un-stinky with all the stain fumes and we will bring it in soon to somewhere in our house.

2. spray painted tiny bird house from $1 section at target pink that was yellow. little #2 loves it.

3. spray painted wood "robbins" sign for my desk that sis-in-law made me years ago. it's all glossy and grey and I want to hold hands with it I love it so much.

4. painted file cabinet to go under desk that is next on project list. It's also grey (we had grey spray paint so budget friendly said to use it and it goes with our colors). I will be "modge podging) the front part of drawers with fabric that matches a bench in our house.

Okay, that's it for now but after garage sale weekend the desk and some chairs are next. Bring it on April...

Be awesome & Love Jesus,
