I’m a superstar masquerading as a nerd, but you knew that, right?

I *can* and *do* suck at something! September 26, 2006

Painting furniture. I suck at it. I just figured… well… this may sound bad, but I have done well in everything I’ve tried to do so far.
My first cake ever:

Carving pumpkins…



I mean…. I try something and I just do pretty well. But I painted a bookshelf and chair for Miss Sofia and it doesn’t look so hot. I don’t have a picture yet, but let me tell ya. This baby needs some touch ups. It *is* cute. And from far away it looks pretty darn good. But I really thought I’d have done a better job.
So much for my dreams of buying cool old furniture pieces and refinishing them.

I think it’s mostly because I didn’t sand. I painted stripes and the blue tape pulled paint AND primer off in chunks. That isn’t supposed to happen, right? Damn. I knew I should have rough sanded. But I have so many things on my to do list that I thought that i’d just skip that step and it’d be just fine.
