Painting Furniture, Soccer and Heat

Life has been pretty quiet for the past few weeks.  We’ve actually been able to spend time at home and work on the house.  We are almost done with the molding in our bedroom, finally.  And I finally decided to do something about these two little end tables that have been sitting around our house.  We found one on the street in NYC (free) and another at a yard sale here in NJ (free since it was the end of the day and teenagers were left in charge).

They are about the same size and the same yucky orange.  photo 5-4

photo 3-5 I decided to finally give chalk paint a go.  I painted them both Old White and they are now in our nightstands.  Scott has had his for two nights and both nights he has said he feels so grown up having a bed side table.  I’ll post the finished product on Monday, when I can snap a picture.photo 4-5But there is a sneaky peek in the below selfie.  Ugh, shameful selfie in a messy room.  But I wanted to capture my America t-shirt! I wore this the day we played Germany.  It is my new favorite.photo 3-6 We definitely got into the soccer spirit around here.  There was even an official showing in our common area at work.  I feel like I always do at the end of the Olympics. I’m so sad to see the World Cup end.  Now that ESPN is covering more basketball (anyone else tired of LeBron?) and tennis (just not as exciting at soccer) I feel kinda let down.  I’m looking forward to watching the final match this Sunday.photo 2-8

Last thing going on lately?  The heat.  I don’t actually mind it. I was raised in Virginia where it’s almost 100 degrees by May.  But Scott stayed home the week of July 4th and I got multiple text messages showcasing the below.photo 1-8
I think this poor buddy is getting the worst of it. Did I mention we don’t have air conditioning?photo 5-3
