I've been married longer than on-line dating has been around, so I never experienced it.
One of my favorite movies, Must Love Dogs, was on TV last week. As I watched it for the 14th time, I was wondering:
"...what catchy phrase would I have used for my on-line ad had I been single when on-line dating was catching on?"
Of course...Must Love Crappy Furniture... would be an honest line for my bio, but I don't think it would've gotten me many dates!
When I posted pictures of the vintage dresser we re-purposed for Olivia's birth, I mentioned I painted the dresser (and all my other wood furniture) forest green back in the early 90's when I was a single mother trying to make ends meet.
In case you're too young to remember that stylish color back then, I found pictures! Well, sort of.
This is an old farmhouse side table I still have, and it has been many colors in recent years. It was already vintage in the late 80's when I bought it from a farm wife who was happy to be selling the farm and moving to town. You can still see the forest green on the bottom...
Here's baby Olivia's vintage dresser when it was forest green:
A few years ago, I painted the dresser with Annie Sloan's chalk paint in "Old White".
For Olivia's room, we used "Swiss Coffee" in Behr's paint and primer and a dark raspberry color from Lowes for the inside of the drawers.
I liked the Swiss Coffee paint color so much, when I got home I bought a quart of it for some projects I had been putting off for too long!
Wild Bill asked the other day, "...are you a fix'in to paint everything white?"
...and he said it like that was a bad thing!
Of course I had to answer yes!
He's just lucky he doesn't know that I know the "in" color this year is emerald!
