Yesterday was a collage of activity. We started out with the best of intentions working from our weekly schedule. Math, science, required reading for additional subjects and piano practice were on tap for the day...But the sun was out so we decided to wrap up a fall project and gave our bulk head it's final coat of spray paint. One thing led to another and this is what happened.
Inspiration hit for working on other projects that could be spray painted too! The long lost skateboard art project called out to our daughter. Soon she was designing a stencil for her board on the kitchen floor.
She spray painted the trucks
and then the board.
( it's still a work in progress at this point)
Meanwhile her brother and I caught the spray painting bug too!
I'm working on a trash to treasure project. This door knob and hinges were brass but I like this Oiled Rubbed Bronze finish and plan to up cycle the remaining door knobs in our house this way.
Our son spray painted an action figure then went to work on the fine details of his costume...
Throw in some piano practice for an upcoming recital and...
one failed science experiment and that was our day!
It was supposed to be a clock.
Isn't it true for every failure you are one step closer to success?
