a skye rocket project

So its Sunday evening, and I had a project on today.

Craig looks at me and rolls his eyes when I tell him about my latest projects. A couple of weeks ago I bought a piece of furniture at Vinnies, and asked him to pick it up with the ute. Two weeks later I borrowed the ute and picked it up myself ( while wearing yellow high heels, but thats another story! ). "Dont you have enough work to do?" he asked me. Again.

But you see i get these ideas in my head. The wedding expo is coming up next weekend, and i wanted to do something different this year. Of course Craig argued that i was just making more work for myself. Which I totally am. But i had this idea in my head!

So i have spent the better part of my Sunday, my only day off, painting and sanding and more painting. I am covered in paint. My legs are spotchy. And i havent finished yet.

I took the pics for the "before" shot with my new iPhone. I am very technical. Anyway, a "before" pic always makes the after pic look more dramatic if its a crappy pic. But I havent managed to get to the "after" pic yet! Although in this shot it kind of looks like my shadow is wearing the dresser as a hat. And the goofy shadow next to me is my dog.

Hopefully the "after" pic would look fabulous and everyon will be super impressed and then it will be worth the work. But I am having doubts. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out!
