let's see...Ew to New and BASB...monster trucks and fries

here's what we did today:
owen liked the balloon guy better than the truck.
and we have lifetime oil changes for $20 b/c we got our oil changed there today. i didn't realize that until we checked out! it's nice to go to a place to get the oil changed and not have to byoof (bring your own oil filter--they just don't have too many vw's here in town i guess.) and we hit mc d's before we went to see the truck. should have done that the other way around...they had free hot dogs and burgers if you went to see the truck! doy...
owen threw out every single piece of trash, one item at a time. he was screaming and making fart noises with the big kids in the backseat during the drive. he's feeling better i guess.
there is a new challenge up at BASB...hosted by yours truly. it's to make something cute out of something you'd normally throw away. here's a peak of one of the projects i did:

i need some more junk on top of my shelf.

hop on over to see the rest. and won't you please play along? you could win this fab-o prize...

and now for ew to new #15:

the ew:

the wonderful aimee gave me this table, along with two other matching ones (a coffee and an end table). i just love her. she throws out the best stuff! except her hubby saw it on wednesday night and he asked for it back.

4 cans of spray paint, 1 can matte finish, 2 $3.50 knobs and nana's doily later:

(and a spot of cleaned up dog pee...that's what you get for spray painting in the backyard.)

have a good one!

LOL about the dog pee, sounds something that would happen to me painting in the backyard. This is amazing, you should quit your day job and open a little boutique selling your refurbished treasures!
