When The Hubs Doesn't Listen


Hello Blogland! Yes I have been gone for a bit again. So sorry about that. Life has been crazy & hectic to say the least. I wanted to share with you a reason not to cut corners & try to shave off a bit of extra work. This is the piece in the lime light here today:






 The Hubs found this in the neighbor's garbage pile & thought it would be great for our flat screen to go on. Whoever did this piece in the first place did not use primer before painting & the paint was peeling off.




 I started sanding it & the Hubs decided he would take over that process since I was putting in quite a few hours at work because one of the girls went on vacation.  After he sanded some (not all) he declared it ready to paint. I told him that it should be sanded completely but there are times when the man declares himself right & will not budge from that. ( I am sure all of you ladies are nodding your heads right now) So, it was primed.





You can see the areas that were not sanded all the way. This is gonna be interesting huh?





All I could do was shake my head.




All painted & with TV on top. This photo actually does it justice.





Here is a close up of the "finished" (actually unfinished to me) project. You can see the mars in the top where it was not totally sanded before priming & painting. Feel free to use this as a tutorial for anyone thinking of skimping on the sanding process.  Now he wants me to redo it all over again. I said sure as long as he sands the entire thing properly. I can bet you anything that this table will stay just as it is unless I do all the work. Let this be a lesson to all out there that if there is a job to do........it needs to be done right.

So if you poof on over to my house one day please ignore the TV stand & admire my drop cloth drapes instead!




Hope all of you had an awesome weekend & all the Fathers out there had a wickedly great Father's Day. Tomorrow I will return with what happened on my weekend.

The Car Garden

 Wow....I am gone for a bit & then here I am back with my second post for the day! I wanted to share with all of you the Hubs Uncle Jake's Car Garden. (say that 5 times fast)  We were at a cookout last Sunday at Uncle Jake's place & the Hubs was showing his cousin's son Mike the "Car Garden". I tagged along to take in the sites.



 Approaching the "garden" you see Jake's van that caught fire last year as he was coming down his driveway.




The Hubs & Mike & more "garden"







 Looks like the garden could stand a bit of weeding!




 This "garden" would make some kind of bouquet huh?




Bunnies!

They were having a great time hopping around & nibbling on stuff. One even came up to the grill while the Hubs was cooking & watched him for a bit. The Hubs was tickled & it made him think of Bandit our bunny. (in a good way not sad)
 My two boys in a rare moment of getting along. Of course they have to be asleep to get along!

Yup....Still Here

 Hey Blogland! Yup, I am still here. It's been quite the week for me. My birthday was the 6th & my mother-in-law was in town. She took me to lunch & my son & the hubs got together & threw a wonderful cook out for my birthday. I got a gift card for Gabriel Brothers (awesome clothing store) from the hubs. My mother-in-law I believe is hunting up a killer deal on a new digital camera for me (squeeee!) I spent Tuesday shopping & got some sweet deals. The rest of the week was busy as all get out cause one of my coworkers was on vacation & another was sick. I put in quite a few 10 hour days on the job. The paycheck will be sweet but I am whipped! I wanted to share some of my fun with all of you.
