Goodwill Goodie Monday Makeover

So this week isn't looking to start much better than last week ended.  DS ran a temp between 101.7 and 103.3 for two days and then yesterday the blisters appeared in his mouth.  However, DD's blisters are starting to disappear.  Our pediatrician said that it's uncommon for kids this age to come down with hand, foot, mouth virus ~ usually it occurs in infants and toddlers, but somehow my 8 year DD and 11 year DS have had it within the last week.  I guess the good thing about them getting it now is that it is not as painful and doesn't last as long at their age.  Plus once you have it, your body develops antibodies to it and you can't get it again.  Mark another childhood illness had.

It has been so hot and humid here for the last few days, it hasn't been awful being confined to the house.  One step out the door and I have sweat running everywhere.  In fact, it's been so hot that even a trip to the pool hasn't sounded fun.  You almost literally can't breathe from the humidity in the air.  I'm so glad that I painted several goodies ahead of time a few weeks ago.  I've been able to work on a few in the basement instead of having to venture out to the shed to prep and paint.

I've been wanting to try my hand at one of these for awhile now, but just couldn't find the right one to makeover.  Well, I finally found one that I think will work wonderfully.  Several times I've had a finished one in my hand at a prim store and then put it back because I just can't pay $15-$30 for something that I know I can make myself for a fraction of that.  Here it is ~

That's right ~ a round piece of wood!  I mean, don't we all want a round piece of wood!  Okay, so maybe I'm joking around.  It's all prepped and ready to go, I just need to put the finishing touches on it this week ~ and it looks like I'll be in the house for a majority of it so why not prim away.
