Luxury Wood Watch
School started up for me again this week! This semester I'm only taking 2 classes. In each of the 3 semesters last year I took 3 classes, and it just got to be too much, especially with some pretty heavy programming classes in there. So I'm happy to be taking 2 classes right now that are more on the design side anyway. Even though my classes are online and I have no physical class to attend, I got dressed up in my "This Girl is on Fire" shirt, because this school year is going to be great.

Have you ever picked out something to paint just on a whim? Like you didn't have a plan going into it, and didn't even know you wanted to paint it? Sometimes I just like to wander through the thrift store to see what is begging to be painted that day. That’s how I found this jewelry box. It looked pretty boring just sitting there on the shelf. So of course I brought it home with me.

As part of the Country Chic Paint blog squad I received paint for this post.
Have you ever been scared to paint laminate furniture? Have you read posts about how difficult it can be? I decided to try out a pretty easy way with these two nightstands, since I knew I'd be ok if they didn't turn out. Guess what, they've been great! I'll share my tips with you here.

Do you struggle with how to set up chores and job charts for your kids? I know I have, and I've tried a few different ways to assign jobs, keep track of them, keep them age appropriate, etc. And that's a chore in and of itself! This has been the best system for us for setting up jobs that the kids can do before school. I don't have to tell them what to do everyday, and the jobs rotate between kids without me having to remember to spin a wheel or update a list.
