~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

Hi everyone!
I'm late again for WWW but that does usually happen when I have a 1 o'clock hair appt. on a Wednesday. Plus our power was out right when I was using the computer this morning...seems a cement truck hit a utility pole so I had to put makeup on in a dark bathroom with only candle light to see by:)

This is what I worked on today, I bought this clock for 50% off at The Country Store last Friday and was thrilled, I had been on the look out for one for my mantel, so I was hoping to see one at GW cheap then prim it up but I hadn't had any luck in finding one there.Well, when I got it up to the counter though I noticed that the top and bottom of the clock were a dark green... so then I had to decide if I wanted to buy it and paint it, as you can see I decided to bring it home:0 This first pic is the finished clock after I painted and stained it...I used a colonial blue then the walnut stain. It turned out great and now I'm glad I did buy it and do a little redo on it.

This is the pic of it when I remembered to take a picture, as you can see I had already started to paint it! You can tell at the bottom that it is a dark green. Funny how they would use green instead of blue!

I'm also working on a patriotic sampler in the mornings and evenings...I have quite a few frames from GW I need to fill with some samplers:)

Well, that's about all I've been up to, as I said I went and got my hair trimmed and colored today then went to Michele's to water her flowers while they are in Ocean City, when I got home Stush had painted the ceilings in the livingroom and diningroom so I guess the end is in sight:)
Stop by Leslie's and see what everyone is up to for WWW!!!
