Whew! School and work caught up to me this week. I have been busy. Last night I slept about 11 hours and had three vanilla vodka lemonades. So today I felt ready & revitalized and I decided to take on this little shelf Andy's parents had given me. It started off shiny and navy. It's very messy sanding all the paint off but it's better than using a chemical stripper. I doubt I will finish this weekend because of the heat, the tediousness and the paper I have to write. But I figured I would go ahead and start. Two more weekends and it should be done.
