a very martha weekend
Remember how I did a craft project a couple of weeks ago and then promised to put up some images? Well here they are! It was the Sunday following Gluten-Free night and my sister-in-law and I were walking along 7th Avenue in Park Slope when I spotted a rather sad but could-be useful bookshelf at the flea market. It just needed some love and paint. I got Tony over to approve the purchase and then we made our way to True Value to grab our supplies and then head back to the apartment. The only problem was that I promised to make an applesauce cake too! What was I to do!? I decided to channel my inner Martha. Martha (Stewart that is) seems to be able to do it all. She can craft and bake and cook all at once so why couldn't I? I enlisted the help of Christina for the sanding prep work which was simply amazing of her to do while I got my cake mixed and ready. In the chilly weather, cake in the oven, we proceeded to put on 3 coats of paint and get it to an even pretty blue.
I felt pretty proud of that day, making a tasty cake and re-painting a flea market find into a cute addition to our living room. Thanks Tony and Christina (and Martha too)!
