Sneak Peek Project #3

I know I have been absent for a bit. Comcast and I have not been friends for the last couple of weeks. My phone/internet/cable line has been down more than up. It's a bit irritating. They recabled my house and gave us a new adapter, but it's still in and out. So now they think that the cable line may be faulty due to a neighbor's tree branch caught on it. I don't watch much TV, so I'm ok with the cable being down, but the telephone and internet. Now, that's a different story. But it has given me a little bit of time to work outside. Right now, the internet is up, but in about 10-15 minutes it will be down. So until they fix it, I won't be on very much. This is a bummer.

By the way, I've also noticed that I've been spelling Sneak Peek as Sneak Peak. Silly me. I always try to proofread my work, but how did this one pass me by? Anyhoo, now I've got to edit my other blogs.

Well, remember this little blue hamper?

This weekend, it will be getting a small makeover. Hint: paint.

I can't wait til it's done. I should be posting another sneak peek project next week. Right now, I'm in the process of ordering parts for it.

I know I haven't posted the results of project #1, but I realized it's part of a bigger picture. So, unfortunately, that one is going to have to wait.

Until then.

What kind of paint can you use on the hamper? Is it made of vinyl? Will the paint stick? I saw a cute hamper at the thrift store the other day and I almost bought it but it was the wrong color. I will have to go and see if it is still there. I can't wait to see yours finished!

LOVE your blog and am anxious to see your projects when you're through.

That toureen is just gorgeous and if I had been shopping with you I would have SO fought you over the Cherub light, lol! To die for... reminds me so much of the one from the staircase on Titanic.

Love the flower pot stand too.

I am also quilty of the peak/peek thing.... and who knows what else! :P

PS! I forgot to say that because of you I took the plunge and changed my blog background. I loved yours and had always been too nervous to mess with mine. Thanks!
