DIY Sunday With Jann Arden

After Mass today, I stopped at a store to replenish my DIY supplies.

Max and I headed out for some off-leash fun and then after a quick lunch, I started up some tunes (Jann Arden) and continued on with the bedroom furniture prep.

Today’s readings at Mass really spoke to me for a whole number of reasons.  The following song causes me to think again about the Gospel reading, Luke 13: 22-30.

I began my session of stripping furniture today with some new tools…beautiful rubber gloves and a new paint stripping tool!  I also picked up, upon someone’s recommendation, some Heirloom paint stripping gel.  The work went remarkably well. Now, to put my feet up.

Unlike the Heirloom promotional video, this is what my first application and stripping looks like!  Not so easy as presented.

The mess would drive some people bonkers.

I’m starting to think about what artist I’m going to be exploring on these next three pieces of furniture for my bedroom.  At the moment, I’m thinking about Chagall’s Madonna or his Abraham and Three Angels.  I want to use a colour scheme that includes Pthalo Blue and a rich deep earthy orange.  I might go a whole other direction, but just for this time, this is what I’m thinking.
