I painted from about 7:00 a.m. on Saturday until about 6:30 p.m. Saturday night. I am painting the bookcases my Dad made for our new home. I should know better but I didn't prime the wood like I should have and I am paying the price! I got 1 coat of white semi-gloss paint on the whole unit and there was alot of streaking. I then started the second coat and there still is streaking. I spoke with my painting Subcontractor at work and she is sending me a great primer to cover the entire piece and then paint with regular paint. What a sweetheart she is! I want to get them all done before Jenny's Baby Sprinkle on Sunday.
Here is what the piece looks like with 1 coat of paint. As you can see I need alot more coverage. They will be very nice when they are all done:
My grandson, Owen came in the afternoon and I told him I needed a painting leprechaun and he just laughed at me! I was serious-LOL!! I'll show you the finished product when I get there!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
