On Saturday the hubs and I took advantage of the cooler weather by getting some MAJOR work done on two outstanding projects: the DIY headboard and our Craigslist dining table and chairs. This was the first time I wasn't sweating gumbballs while doing work in the garage, so I was basically out there all day. By dinner time my entire body ached and I just felt old.
If you follow me in Instagram, you already got a sneak peak at the chalk paint dining table and chairs. I'm going to share more of the before and after later but in case you missed it...
This thing was a beast. Even though you don't have to prep for chalk paint, this needed lots of TLC. When I took this photo I still needed to wax everything, which is why the seats weren't attached yet. Stay tuned for the final product this week!
Another sneak peak, this time of the headboard... its coming along!
I am beyond excited to share the final product with you but I never got around to the nailhead trim this weekend so we'll all have to wait a couple days! If only we had a 3-day weekend!
Another highlight of our weekend was a Sunday morning trip to the beach on Isle of Palms. We brought Ruby with us and she had the absolute time of her life. No joke, the pup was loving it, which is funny because the last time we took her to the beach she wanted nothing to do with it. Her happiness was infectious and we all thoroughly enjoyed our hour-long walk. Here are a few snapshots...
Ruby isn't a big fan of the waves but the longer we were there, the more brave she got and she started running through the water. Right after I told the hubs how surprised I was that she wasn't that dirty, she took the liberty to roll in the sand near the walkway to the car. I totally jinxed it. Ugh!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend like we did! P.S. Can you even believe tomorrow is OCTOBER?!
