Lucky Number Seven!!!

Hello!  How was your Monday?  My son and I went to our local pool this morning and enjoyed an hour of splashing fun.  He turned four this past summer and pretty much learned how to swim by himself.  I was afraid he would've lost his "braveness" and wouldn't want to swim without his life jacket.  I was absolutely wrong.....he didn't miss a beat!  He picked it right up and was doing big "splooshes and dunks" just like he was doing this past summer.  It was a fun morning and we both enjoyed ourselves!

I found this little plant stand?  I am not totally sure what it was originally made for.  I didn't mind the red but I wanted to jazz it up a bit.  

I gave it a couple coats of a light turquoise paint and then distressed it enough so you could see the red coming through. I love the color combination red/aqua.  I added a number seven using my cricut machine to the top of it.  What do you think?  Better before or after?

Enjoy your evening!
