Gosh, I'm looking forward to the long weekend – and its only Thursday! We don't have any big plans, but lots of little ones. In addition to playing outside, baking and doing crafts with the kids, here's what is on my list.
Since our garage sale did so well last Saturday, we decided to leave everything set up in the garage and open up on more morning. So Saturday morning we are going to do it again. Whatever is left we will box up and donate.
I'm also going to complete a couple DIY projects. I think I can maybe even tackle these during the garage sale, if it isn't too busy:
- Spray paint this mirror that I got at Goodwill for our mantle. (Did you see it on Instagram?) I have been looking for one like it for MONTHS and was so excited when I found one this week. It was only $14.99. YEOW!
- Finish the chicken wire frame that I started for Adeline's room. The frame is painted – I just need to attach the chicken wire.
- Spray paint and attach the hardware for a dresser that I have painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint. I can't wait to share it with y'all. I got the dresser for $20 at Goodwill and I can't believe how amazing it looks. (You can see a few previews on Instagram.)
I'm also going to do some sewing. It's my sister's baby shower next weekend, so I have a few things I want to sew for that. I also am adding a skirt to a vintage Sesame Street outfit for Adeline's birthday, so hope to do that too.
And lastly, we are going to paint the kitchen.
So yes, plenty to do in three days! Ha!
Memorial Day weekend also means lots of big sales. I will be sure to post a little over the weekend, so don't forget to check in.
What are your weekend plans?
