Procrastination Party!

Melissa over at The Inspired Room is holding a "Project Procrastinators" Party where she inspired us to drag out our long awaited projects and git 'er done! Well, she didn't really say that, I've just always wanted to put that in a post somewhere.

She posted her before pictures of her dining room chairs, and encouraged us to post pictures of our "before" projects. So, to keep me accountable (and to drive my husband absolutely nuts in the process...he is so gonna kill me for doing this...I'll tell you why later), here are my before pictures of my step-stool that was my Mimmie's. That would be my maternal grandmother. She had this stool in her kitchen for as long as I can remember. I don't know where it came from. It was just always there. I have no idea what it was originally covered with...probably some form of vinyl. Anyway, here you go...oh, and by the way, I've had these pictures in my "blog pictures" file for almost a year now...I knew I was going to be doing this project, I just didn't have the gumption to finish it. Okay, here you go...Oh. Oh, oh, oh. This poor, neglected step stool. I just don't even know what to say about it...I'm a bit verklempt.
This...this is the seat. This ugly-contact-paper adorned piece of wood is the seat. Notice the stains. Notice the red...some-kind-of-vinyl-something-or-other underneath the ugly contact paper. Oh. Oh, my.

Well, don't you worry, my...um...pretty...Momma's gonna fix you up right.

Check back tomorrow to see why Sound Man is so gonna kill me for committing to this right now.

Now, head on over to Melissa's and link up yourself...you know you have a project you've been letting slide for too long!

I just know you used the word "verklempt" in my honor. And pictures taken for a year? Yep, I'd say that was procrastination!

Mornin' sweet Heather! I'm catching up on your posts! Yeah, I've heard about the procrastination thing! Problem is, I've got so many projects being procastinated on I don't know which one to do??!!??!! HELP! I needed your retreat! I'd love to go next year! Is anyone invited? I did have a nice retreat with my DH! The Biltmore was jaw dropping! I think I've told you that 2 Cor. 3:18 is one of my favs! When I was in a small accountability group at church we used this scripture to memorize and recite for every meeting! Well, I can't wait to see your "finished" project! Mine is the laundry! God Bless you all today! Aunt Lauralu! :)
Oh, tell Soundman I got his birthday greeting! Thank you sweetie!
