Another Manic Monday

Every Monday day is always hectic for me and my little family.  It always starts with the 3 or 4 alarm clocks going off while my husband plays dead and I'm searching for his phone to cut the alarm off, next the alarm on my nightstand, which is set 15 to 20 minutes early (WHY...it doesn't make us move any faster?), and my Granny ringing my phone non-stop until I finally answer.  Shower then getting the little one ready just in time to grab some coffee and haul ass to work ;-).  This is the Turner family way, every day, all the time!  My mom gets on me constantly about getting up earlier, but I think I like the thrill of it!  With that being said my days are always crazy and interesting even when I think they're not. With a two year old running around and Daddy still at work I still made time to finish a little task in our office last night.  I had brought some cork tiles this weekend and thought that instead of having boring ol' cork tiles I would "jazz" them up a bit.  So I pulled out my bag of goodies [yes I have my own toolbox that my husband has sort-of taken over] and got started.


A little painter's tape...

Some paint...

Oh and that lovely door is now our desk.


My husband added some molding, legs and paint and all under $25

This is what is behind the desk...it needs something - paint, board and batten, stencil work [so many options!]

 Until next time....
