Painting v. Picnic - Round One

Yesterday was a glorious day - sun was shining, birds were chirping, daffodils inching their way heavenward. Really made me want to do this...

But instead, I was doing this...

I have been a serious slacker on finishing Project Pepto: phase two. It is impossible to get any work done inside with Spring Fever running rampant in our household. I just want to be outside, fiddling in the garden, watching my bulbs sprout out of the ground centimeter-by-centimeter (which despite what you've been told is definitely more fun than watching paint dry.) Because of this our dining room has been in the grips of construction mania for many many months now. So with Mr. out of town I thought I would surprise him by painting the cabinet doors for the new built-ins that he has worked so hard on (besides, a picnic for one just doesn't hold as much appeal). This will come as no surprise: I didn't finish. BUT I am hopeful that I will get it done this weekend (read: Mr. will be back by then and can help!) I'll post the big reveal when I get my act together  finish.

The little antique glass bomb chest in the foreground was my late grandmothers and has been a thorn in my side for five years now. I am finally doing something about it. More on that later.

So the score:

Picnic: 0
Painting: 1

So the painting won out! I like the cabinet. It looks good in white.

I am right there with you! We had a warm week, that made me want to dig in the dirt and clean up the flower beds, but now it's suppose to be cold next week :-(. Can't wait to see your projects completed!
