We had a childless weekend, some couples would go to a movie, have a romantic dinner; well that’s not the way Mr. Wonderful and I roll. We went to an architectural salvage yard, sought out the best hamburger in Cincinnati (Terry’s Surf and Turf, the father and son sitting next to us told us to try Zips and Arthurs before we hand out the blue ribbon) and then came home and tackled not one, not two but three DIY Projects(pics below).
Doesn’t that look wonderful? You know what they say, the way to a man’s heart is thru his stomach. Mr. Wonderful was a busy guy after he ate that hamburger.
He created this sign to hang over our bed, since the room is a hot mess right now I can only show you the sign. A few weekends ago he painted our furniture black and it looks great. I then let him pick our bed linens, he picked a black and white set which is on back order….hence the room is a hot mess. I am impressed with our sign, it was a large rub on that I didn’t want to put on a wall because I have a tendency to change paint color on a whim. I loved the rub on and wanted to know I would always have it.
Isn’t Mr. Wonderful the best? He cut me a piece of wood, painted that frame and boom we had our “Happily Ever After” masterpiece.
So while the paint is drying I ask him to grab a dresser drawer for me to “play with”. His reply, “You mean the dresser Sherri stripped three years ago?” Yeap, that’s the one I was talking about.
This was the back of the dresser I didn’t take any “before” pictures because remember I was just playing…….
I’m going to save the finished project for a PARTY (The Colour Challenge) over at Funky Junk Interiors, check back you’ll love it.
As if the “Happily Ever After” sign and dresser wasn’t enough; what do you think we did with these?
Stop back by and see what a little blue paint and stain can create!
Cute, cute sign. Mr. Wonderful sounds like a keeper!
I love the sign! I noticed Mr. Wonderful’s shirt too. Love the Reds and Jay Bruce! I’ll have to look up the hamburger joint the next time we’re up there. 😉
