Hugo's New Bed

Our friend Ms Sheri has given a twin bed to Hugo. He is very excited! I bought him new sheets and a throw pillow with cars on them. Not cars from the movie Cars cars. Super mod lookin' cars from Dwell Studio for Target type cars.

Poppa couldn't wait to drive home from church today, he was itching for a project in the yard. He tucked Hugo into bed for his nap and then changed his own clothes. I made sandwiches which we shared side by side in the kitchen. I love my marble counter top but, this time of year I freeze while sitting at it's edge, resting my arms and body against it. I have fabric placemats but they don't help much.

First Cesar sanded all the varnish off the beds head and footboards. Then he primed them both with his paint sprayer. And then, he laid on the left over pale cream paint I've had stashed up in my craft room. Hugo woke in time to witness the last layer of paint being applied. He wanted to touch it in the worst way. Cesar told him he could have one of the sprayed rocks on the ground. Hugo picked up one piece of pale cream colored gravel, checked it over and chucked it over his shoulder narrowly missing me! He was not impressed.

This morning the pieces were still tacky to the touch so I lit a fire in the woodstove to dry out the damp rain air of the house. I was planning on setting up the bed tomorrow with the freshly washed car sheets and flipping Hugo's nursery style room around but, Cesar wants me to wait for him. Boo hoo. I was almost as excited as Hugo! Now we both have to wait...

Fun, fun! I love redecorating too. The tulip shot is gor-ge-ous. Love it.
