Weekend Snippets {vol. 3}

6.21.2011

A few highlights of the beautiful weekend -

Friday
Deeeeee-licious dinner at Rocketfish in San Francisco.  You'll note there aren't any pics of din-din ... my hands were too busy shovelin' the yummy into mah tummy.

Saturday
Grocery shopping, blog reading, and a little DIY.  This was my first DIY project and, I must say, I'm pretty happy with it.  (Nevermind that I picked a pretty easy starter project...)  The Boyfriend has been craving a Mad Men-style drink cart to use as a bar so last weekend we hit up a few antique stores.  We found this little gem but it was quite nasty.  It was coated in a pretty thick layer of dust and had some icky plastic wheels.  The wheels were so old, Lowe's didn't carry anything with a compatible attachment piece!!

 The handles were dull and brassy, rather than golden.

We replaced the wheels with some little rubber feet and cleaned the glass (sorry ... forgot to take a "Before" shot with the icky old wheels but think previously-clear-plastic-but-now-gray plastic wheels with a layer of dust).

And After - They Boyfriend thought we should restore it to its former Golden Glory so we went with a nice metallic gold spray paint.
Not too bad for a first project, eh?

Sunday
Fabulous bbq, homemade cherry pie, time with the family, and hanging out with Bo (the poodle from yesterday!).  What more could you ask for to wrap up the weekend?

Again, the hands were too busy shovelin' to bother with shootin' but I did manage to grab some "Before & After" shots of the fresh cherries for the pie!
