9:15 pm what???

sometimes you're coming home from a walk to the grocery store with your deli meats and your jones sodas and you happen upon a lovely scene, something like this:


and your heart goes 'pitter patter pitter patter i NEED THAT!"

and an hour or so later, you convince your husband to go back and get it for you (aka you drive the car with the dresser half in the drunk half out, while he walks behind the car holding the back end of the dresser, through the apartment complex, home) and your irish neighbor to help him carry it up and then you go to home depot and get all your stuffs with happy visions of 


in your head... or something like it... or any entertainment center type thing in general, to get rid of this yucko-ness...


so even though some huge storm is supposed to come in and it's dark and there are bugs everywhere and landing in the paint, you want it done tonight!  here it is taken apart, kinda can get an idea of how it looked. like crap.




and here it is all done. i may take the top 2 drawers out and just have them be open shelves for the dvd player and maybe movies, but i haven't decided yet... still better than before. and for a total cost of $7 after paint and a foam brush, it was worth it.


(sorry for the crappy pictures, i took them on the computer cause i'm lazy.)

we had some peeps over tonight and made strawberry gelato and key lime ice cream, yum! here are a couple of pics...
