I'm here, I'm here...

Hi there!  I have been SUPER busy lately...I think I told you how overcommitted I am this year...but I've also been busy around the house.  

Here are a few sneak peeks!!

It's almost Halloween, so I'm in the middle of planning our 9th Annual Costume Party, so what better time to start painting my kitchen cabinets...finally!

 
I started exactly 3 weeks before the party...I'm not thinking I will get them done, but I will be working my butt off trying.  9 days and counting.
 


Oh and in the midst of painting, I decided not to paint all of the cabinets black.  I am going with a two toned look, with white on top and black on the bottom.
 


I also did a little side project.  My little rhino friend received a nice coat of gold paint. 
He is B-E-A-Utiful now!
 


 
I also may have painted our front doors...this is the original color, which isn't bad, but with the cornflower shutters they looked a bit dated.  So we changed the shutters and I painted the front doors a bright ass Green!  Not sure I love it, but it's growing on me! 
I will be back with pictures soon!
 

 
I did a little Craigslisting and found this little beauty.  I did have to go to a scary neighborhood, but thought it was a steal at $20.00.  The middle shelves swivle out...so it is a total 70s wonder!

 
I may also have gotten a wild hair to try out different housepaint colors...but have since painted over them with white.  I can't take on a project of this magnitude at this point...and yes my 7 year old is on the front porch in her panties!
 

 
I also found this little rattan sofa table that got a quick coat of matte black spray paint.  I still haven't nailed down it's new home...but I'm getting closer.  Plus it also has the 70s smoky glass of my little brass friend up above.
 


 
I also copied some chalk board art from Pinterest and am quite pleased with myself...
 


So anywho...now you know what I've been up to...My husband calls my affliction "project drift".  You know when you're in the midst of one project and decide to start another one...
Oh yeah, I did this again last night and starting sewing some slip covers for some fugly chairs I have.
 
So my goal is to get my kitchen cabinets and my slip covers finished...do you think I can do it?
 
Oh and I also need to finish our costumes!  Sheesh, someone shoot me!
 
Do you have project drift?  What is the cure?
