Week in review: 9/14/2012

I picked up a baby changing table at the thrift store. It was $30. Dave’s probably going to have a cow because I brought another piece of unwanted junk into the house. My plans are to remove the lip from the top, and then make a stainless steel top. I’ll refurbish the entire piece, sanding it down, and either staining or painting it. Maybe it will get some little wheels for the bottom, which will allow us to easily wheel it outside to use as a sort of drinks trolley. I’ll let you know how it turns out…I’m not planning to work on it for awhile. It will be one of my projects for this winter.
Dave was so exhausted one evening that he came home from work, and went right to bed. Since it was just me, I abandoned our regular dinner menu, and just made a quesadilla with two corn tortillas and some cheese with green onions and a little fried bacon.
Our intern at the office gave me a little box of cookies. I’d show you the cookies, but alas…someone ate them. I wonder who that could have been?
My friend Cheryl and I have birthdays that are very close together. I knew she’d been wanting a little mirror for awhile, so I was pleased when I saw a box of several brass mirrors at a local shop. I gave us each one for our birthdays. I think hers is still brass, but this week I used a little Rub and Buff on mine, and made it antiqued silver. After it gets another coat, I’ll hang it in the hall.
