Before & After

This weekend after the boyfriends birthday celebrations I got really flipping motivated.  I'm not sure if it was because it was in the 50's and I could smell spring but this girl got shit done. This doesn't happen often but I had all these ideas brewing in my head and ran with it.  Over coffee the boyfriend and I were talking about how we wanted to spend the day.

I had the bright idea to head over to his factory to get some wood pallets so that I could do something with them.  I had a few ideas of things I wanted to do with them.  So we decided to head over there. While we were there we decided to pick up the media cabinet that the bf had designed.  Though the business is commercial cabinet manufacturing the bf has dreams of designing furniture.  His first design is now sitting in our living room.  I like to think that it's pretty fucking cool!  I had to call up Phil's dad to help us carry the thing because Phil is out of commission at the moment.   I had some fun of course driving around the lil cart in the factory.  It reminds me of the first time I came up to visit the bf when we were first dating and he gave me a private tour! :)

This piece of junk served its purpose but it was literally on it's last hinge. Needless to say I was not sad to see it go.  :)

Huge improvement my friends and I am loving all the color pops for spring!  The flowers make me happy because the boyfriend sent them to me at work last week for being such a good nurse during his recovery process.  #Boyfriendpoints.  

On Sunday we went to breakfast with Phil's Dad, Sister and her family. When I got home I spent the whole day in the basement doing magical things with these pallets, power sander and a hammer.  I was sore the next day from all that shenanigans.  If you want a good workout go disassemble a pallet with a hammer and a drywall knife.   But that's all I am going to leave you with till everything is complete! Stay tuned for the finished magic.
