I did something REALLY cool on the 5th, though. A friend of mine had her bachelorette party at a place called Painting With A Twist, which is one of those studio art classes places. We noshed on veggies and cheese and cookies, drank wine and punch, and all painted a cute little picture of fireflies in a jar along with the instructor.
IT WAS SO MUCH FUN YOU GUYS.
At the end of the class, we all took a big class photo of us holding our paintings, and then there was a raffle in which the winner (randomly drawn name) got to pick a finished piece of a showcase wall of paintings done by the instructor. Guess who won! ME!
|Instructor's piece on the left (Austin Skyline and town lake, Van Gogh-ish-ly; my firefly painting on the right. Hee!|
Also, I have an update for you on those bulk day pieces from the other week...um, sort of. Actual photos of them instead of pictures from the internet that are kinda close.

|Trio of 2x4' sheet mirrors! SO EXCITED.|

cords damnit; flat bike tire)
The little side table, I'm thinking, is going to become TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME. You know, once I get a spare five minutes to freaking work on it, which I haven't had lately.
The mirrors are going into the master bath as I mentioned in the previous entry; but that's going to be the end of a cascading set of projects:
- fix up a light fixture and install it in the guest bath
- move old guest bath fixture to master bath
- repaint the room
- hang the mirrors
I have NO clue what I'm going to do with the footstool. I mean, aside from refinish the wood and replace the upholstery. I mean, what'll it be FOR? It's tall enough to be a piano stool, I think. I dunno yet.
The secret project in this entry is what the footstool is propped on/in in above: it's a counter-height kitchen cabinet, about 24" square, with drawer and door, and single shelf inside. It's going to be the end piece of my new garage worktable, once I get off my !#@% and build the goddamned thing.
