Coffee Table….. or Not November 12, 2010

Filed under: Lindsey — elwstew @ 1:00 am

I found this baby at a yard sale this spring for…………. $5! Yep I did type that right. $5 I was so excited. Ed has always been able to see my visions so when I brought her home he liked her. Some people in my family, I will not name names, did not like her very well. 😦  I did not need a coffee table but I did need a bench for the end of my bed. She was perfect!

So I gave her a bath and then primed her.

I used Kilz spray paint primer. It is the best.

Then I painted her Krylon Ocean Breezy spray paint. Yes SPRAY PAINT! I spray paint everything.

After she was dried I glazed her. I BIG thanks to Ed for helping with the glazing process. I applied the glaze and he wiped. It saved me two days worth of work. 🙂 Love ya babe.

I loved how she turned out.

Also another BIG thanks goes to Jenn and Josh for letting me use their space heater so the paint would not crack. 🙂

I will post a picture of her in my room when she is all dry. 🙂

Since I love make things and redoing this for cheap. I will tell you this coffee table cost $24 dollars… What a deal.

$5 for the table

$4.49 x 2 for the primer

$2.97 x 3 for the paint

I probably used a dollar worth of glaze.

Here is the before and after right next to each other.


Potty Training November 8, 2010

Here are some really cute pictures of Westin when we tried to potty train him. We were doing okay but by the fifth day home all day not doing anything but watching Westin every second and then cleaning carpets I was going to go insane. When were having a perfect day not accidents and then I said yes to babysit a little boy and should have said no but Westin loves playing with him. In the two hours I had the little boy we had 4 accidents. The next day got worse I was crying all day and begged Ed to let me quit. Thank heavens he said I could we will try again when he is three.


Kitchen Table. September 12, 2010

Filed under: Lindsey — elwstew @ 2:29 pm

Oh my!!! It is all done. What might you ask, my kitchen table. I decided to redo my kitchen table and chairs after I started reading this blog http://www.allthingsthrifty.com  I loved their style and I knew I could do it. I thought that it would not take me to long but it took forever. It would not have been too bad but I could not get the top of the table to look just right. I finally decided that it was as good as it was going to get. Now the car can be parked in the garage. Yeah!

Here is a before picture sorry it is all that I got.

I do not have pictures of the chairs but they were the same color of wood with cream seats that were all stained.

Abracadabra and a month later and lots of hard work…….

I glazed the table.


Thanksgiving Point September 6, 2010

My sister-law Jenn called me and let me know that Thanksgiving Point was having their last $2 Tuesday so be decided to go. We get there and the line is huge. It wrapped around the whole side of the building but since we were there we decided to stay. The line moved pretty fast.

Here we are standing in line

Here are we once we got inside the building.

And finally in the museum.

Emmy being so cute.

Jenn tried to get a picture of Westin and I but he is still mad about not get to hold the camera. The water and sand areas were our favorite places.


Boyz II Men March 9, 2009

I posted a while ago that I would be going to the Boyz II Men concert on March 7th. Well I went and it was a blast.


This is us at the hotel getting ready to go to the concert.


Us being goofy.


More pictures. I think we took a million.


This is in the concert hall. We danced and sang the night away. During one of thesongs they get away roses. We tried to get to the stage but if you did not have a certain seat and ticket the security was not going to have it. This is a picture of Kris who weaseled her way down there and got to the front of the stage. We were all so jealous.

This is after the show. Jess, Cari, and I are acting out what we would do if we got to go back stage and see them.


So we really what to go back stage and meet Boyz II Men but we were not willing to pay $30 a piece.  Kris being the crazy amazing girl she is started talking to Todd one of the security people.


So I guessed that Kris’s magic worked we all got to go back stage and meet them. It was amazing.


Our group picture


Showing off our FREE  Back Stage Pass’s


After the show we went to the casino. I did not win any big money but…..


Jenn did… 🙂 After this picture we got yelled at. And the lady was so mean. I guess you are not aloud to take pictures in a casino. Opps 🙂


So we decided to head back to the hotel room after we got yelled at. So here is a few of us getting drunk on Root Beer and Vanilla Cream. So yummy!

The person in the white coat is me and the person laying down in my sister in law Jessie.

Well one week my sister in law Jenn calls and telling us that she found an place where we could go night skiing for $5 a person if we had a group of  ten or more. We all get really excited because it was so cheap. A few days later after we all got babysitters we find out that it is CROSS COUNTRY SKIING. Well none of us have ever been so decided we have babysitters lets just go. We had a great time but everyone was falling all over the place. It is much hard  that it looks. Going straight or up hill is fine, but when you go down hill it is nothing like regular skiing. So the picture is one of the times and I crashed. I am laughing so hard that I throw my head back. Getting up was so hard.

I Tag Jenn, Jessie, Mariah, Natalie, Chana, and Avalon and anyone eles who would like to do it.
