Spare Time & Relaxing

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I re-painted our master bathroom and re-painted and stained a bathroom cupboard that my FIL gave to me last Christmas. I love the cupboard, but after re-doing my bathroom cabinets I had to re-paint the bathroom a different color in order to make the cabinets look good and then after that I had to re-paint the cupboard in order to tie it all together. Geesh, don't you love it when one thing leads to another? I didn't anticipate all of this, but I wasn't going to keep it the way it was and then have certain things stand out like a sore thumb. Cameron allowed me to get so much done yesterday. He was literally THE BEST little boy that I have EVER seen. I put him in his pack n play to keep him away from the wet walls in the bathroom, turned on his little portable DVD player with Blue's Clues, gave him some juice and goldfish crackers and he must have sat there for an hour or longer. He was so so good, never cried or whined and it allowed me to get the bathroom pretty much all finished before lunch time. Once he went down for his nap I completed it and started on my cupboard. I am quite pleased with all of it and now I just need to add a few decorations here and there and it should be complete.
Today I am walking around like I am 30 months pregnant and can barely move, but it is worth having it all done and looking great! I decorate with antiques and primitives so in my words it looks "Prim Perfect". To see some of the other things I have re-done including my bathroom cupboard that my FIL gave me then check out my Prims from Above site. There are times I go to thrift stores, buy the ugliest looking things and re-finish them to give them a whole new prim look. It is fun, relaxing and it keeps me busy and I love it. If you head over to my primitives site then be sure to look for my cutting board that I re-did. I bought this thing for 50 cents at the thrift store and re-finished it. It looks great and it goes perfectly with my decorations. Well, I am off to see what else I can get into today. Hmmm, what can I decorate next? So, what do you do in your spare time to help you relax? Go ahead and leave me a comment and share what you do. I can't wait to hear about it.

I don't have much spare time, but I just love to scrapbook. Glad that Cameron was such a good boy for you.
