I used two different colors of paint. The speckly one is one of those spray, make-it-stone paints. And guess what? I sold it for $175. So that's a pretty good profit, even with time and supplies.

There is a stereo console at the Goodwill that I would loooooooove to buy. It is just so neat. And the record player, 8-track and radio all still work. . . but I am moving soon, so hopefully I will find something just as lovely in Denver to play with.

Here is what I look like wearing it. You know, if I was a cartoon and had long hair and bigger lips. You try being bored 8 hours a day at work and see what kinds of things you will do to amuse yourself. Go on, just try it.
And that . . . . IS MY BLOG FOR TODAY!
