What do you get when you cross this BU-GLY upholstery…..
With this thick BU-GLY old smoked up wooden chair……
And this AS Chalk paint and some elbow grease?
Want a peek?
May be my favorite ever!
About the kissing your honey goodbye in my title…..
Today I ran errands everywhere.
I first went to Salvation Army, where I proceeded to have a “one on one” with the new manager…..complimenting him on how the store looked……we discussed some issues the store had previously dealt with etc…he is wonderful. It was so nice to finally be able to meet him and chat with him.
I then moved onto Micheal’s to get help from a wonderful sales clerk on some items I needed. She was a sweetie and so attentive.
Following that I then went next door to TJ Maxx’s where I perused to my hearts content and purchased three awesome decorative pillows and a few other clearance items. It was so crowded.
I then decided to stop at a bank ATM machine to get some cash so I could pick up a “steal of a deal” I had found on Craigslist.
When I was waiting for my cash to dispense I decided to glance in the mirror.
Hence the title, “Always kiss your honey goodbye”, which I had not done this ONE morning.
He was in the pool working on his knee therapy, so I said goodbye from the back deck….instead of getting a quick kiss goodbye.
Which, kept him from noticing the fact that the concealer that I put on my face…..EVERY SINGLE DAY…..
Dotted FOUR times under eachÂ eye……
Three dots on my nose…..
Three on my upper lip line…..
Three on my lower lip line…..
Then several dots on my face where blemishes are……
WERE NEVER RUBBED IN.
I have never in my life done that.
I DIDN’T RUB MY IVORY COVER GIRL CONCEALER IN ANYWHERE ON MY FACE!
I only noticed three hours into my errands.
This was the start of my day……
So, I will try to block that image out with this image.
It’s almost working.
Isn’t it pretty?
What do you think?
It turned out sooooo fresh and crisp!
You can’t even tell what it looks like underneath, can you?
I wish my blemishes were so easily hidden.
I wish I would have taken just a glance in the mirror on my way out.
If only all blemishes were hidden so well.
It was like a bad dream where you realize in your dream you are at school in your underpants.
You don’t understand how obvious it was and how long I talked to EVERYONE in the world.
Let me go back to what the other part of this post is about.
The chair transformation…….
Wait until you see this chairs big brother.
Hard to believe that this…..
I will give you my tutorial and reveal of the big brother soon!!!!
I have SO much more to show you guys!
Anyone have pity on me?
Anyone ever walked out like that?
I can’t help but laugh when I think about what the heck that Salvation Army manager and little girl at Michael’s must have been thinking….besides the fifty million other people that were in my vicinity.
Then I cringe in embarrassment…..
Then I laugh.
Then I cringe.
Get the picture? Why me?
What do you think of the chair?
BIG difference isn’t it?
It will soon live at the consignment store.
I am going to miss it.
I am never going to leave without kissing my honey goodbye.
