Pintersting Projects Galore

Summer time rocks!

I can totally catch up on everything!

Exhibit A:
That's like NEVER gonna happen during the school year.  I don't even try anymore.

But, wow.

With that theme in mind, I'm going to get majorly caught up on all of the fun things I've been pinning:

And with that, I'm linking up with one of my bestest bloggy buddies Amber over at {yes, I know bestest is not a word, but it's summertime, folks}

to show you the "Pinteresting Things" I'm going to make this summer.

But, I have managed to complete at least one project already, remember?

Speaking of this project, I've had a few questions that I thought I'd answer first before I link up with Amber.

The number one question was how did I paint it?  What is going to keep it from peeling?

Exhibit B {that sounds so fancy}:

I used Rust-oleum Painters' Touch Primer first and then Rust-oleum Painters' Touch Paint.  Both of them claim that you can cover plastic with it.  So far, so good. {This is a new can of paint, the color didn't magically change to green from pink.  That would make me have super-powers.  Man, I wish I had super-powers!}

I'm assuming that Mr. Rust-oleum will not peel.  If he does, I'm going to be upset.  Well, maybe not too upset.  I shouldn't get worked up over something so little. 

I probably will.

That's my next project in the background, by the way.  You will see it next Monday on Tara's linky :)

Now to some pins that I plan on trying this summer:
