~T2T Day for Me~

Welcome everyone!
The weather here is finally back in the higher 50's today and they said on the news that we didn't get the frost that was to start at midnight... so happy for those that had plants that could be burned or ruined.
I'm healing but not fast enough for me, it's been a week today and I've noticed that I don't have the pain that I used to feel on the inside of my knee anymore, it was like a toothache that just would not go away. I know I'm on it to much but I just can't help it, I found out that I'm the type that would rather be up and around then just sitting. I sure hope this won't hurt it, especially when I go to the doctor's Friday.
Today I took three stacking boxes that I had bought at the fleamarket for $2.00 last year and painted them to go in my bathroom(I'm trying to get it fixed so that I can take pictures for you) they were a creme with navy pattern on top, made out of a thin wood. I first painted them a Buttermilk shade then let dry, then black over top, when it was dry I then sanded each box, I thinned some brown paint and painted them all over again with that. I think they turned out really neat, so instead of putting them away for a garage sale I redid them and now have something new for my bathroom!!!
I'm slowly but surely replacing the navy in my home with black, it's been alot of fun doing it too, looking at something and trying to imagine what it would look like black. I can't wait to start going to the fleamarket and garage sales because I think it's going to be alot of fun this year..... seeing something and wondering how it would look black. Last year at a garage sale I found a white nightstand for $15.00 and painted it black for my bedroom, this year I did a headboard, I just need to get a new quilt for in there so that I can take pictures for you to see how everything looks together.
So is everyone doing the same as me trying to get everything done in order to enjoy the summer that is coming soon? Have a great day!
