It's Finished!

Back in February, my wonderful mom, Little Miss, and I took some much needed time girl time and went antiquing.  I purchased an old baby blue window pane for $12.  It was a steal.  I couldn't pass it up.  Even when I tried to pass, it called to me. 

Amanda.  Amanda.  You want me.  Pick me up.  Hold me.  Cuddle me. 

I cannot promise those were his exact words, but it was something along those lines.  The weird part was my mom did not hear anything.  I'm seeking professional help about the voices.  You don't think it's a problem do you?  


Did you hear that?  No? 

Okay, definitely seeking help.  While I'm dialing my therapist, you can check out my awesomely hot husband sanding the talking window pane.  He did a good job.  I sat around and drank strawberry lemonade with a little umbrella straw.  It was hard work sucking all that down. 

And here is the finished product...

Now, I have a little quiz for you.  Are you ready?

  1. When did I purchase this window pane? 
  2. What month is it now?
  3. How long did it take me to finish?
  4. Should Amanda ever attempt a DIY project ever again?
If you answered "Yes" to question #4, message me 'cause you're gonna need the digits to my therapist!

As you can see a DIY project that takes longer than 5 minutes starts out strong and then fizzles out.  However, I do love it.  It is what I had in mind, and I now know I hate stenciling.  Just sayin'.  On a positive note, I do have another item on my wall.  So maybe now we're down to just 5 additional years before my house is fully decorated.  That's totally doable!

I knew you could do it! I tackled painting all of my interior doors this weekend as well. It only took 4 months for me to start. Ha!
