Hey Yall! I have been a very busy Frannycakes! Project after project, delay after delay and I've actually completed about half of two projects. And my burning question for my readers, all 5 of you, is why is it that when you have a project going on that the rest of your house goes to hell in a hand basket? I came inside to have a sandwich and read blogs and I look around and all I can see is pollen, dirt and things that don't belong where they are. The vacuum will have to come out. I can't stand the rug to look like this. And I can see foot prints on the hardwood floors because the pollen is so thick! No wonder my eyes feel like I have been crying all day and my sinuses are about to explode!

Yesterday, I decided to recover my chair seats on my dining room chairs. These chairs were my grandmothers. I love them. A lot. They have probably never been properly cleaned. At least not since I have had them. So I removed the seats and took them to the garage. I used something I got at home depot along with fine steel wool to clean those things up! I thought maybe it would take me an hour....HA!........Four hours later I was bringing them back in the house. But they look wonderful. Last night, I recovered the seats and put them back on the chairs. They look like new chairs! I am excited!

Today I got up to do what I had actually planned to do yesterday. We took the kitchen chairs and table to the garage a couple of days ago. I have been wanting to paint them black. So I got the paint but either the day was too hot, too humid, too rainy, too understand, right? Well, yesterday was too windy. Plus we have this pollen problem, so I had to postpone painting again. Today we had just a little breeze so I started spraying. The chairs look so good! I am not finished yet. I am letting the first couple of coats dry good then I will move the all to the back yard shade. Hopefully by then my "trigger" finger will have feeling again.

So now you know what I have been doing and not doing along with no blogging yesterday. I think I will get the vacuum out and get that over with first. I will talk to you later and hopefully have some pictures! Tootles!
