I hope you’ve had a great week as we head towards the weekend. Next week is our spring break, but alas, I will be here. In Ohio. It’s fine though, I have plenty to do, and it’s nice having some down time. Plus, the weather is supposed to be nice (although right now it feels like Old Man Winter doesn’t want to go quietly into the goodnight). Hard to believe that I just mowed the grass yesterday with the way the wind and cold are kicking into high gear today. Anyway, let’s get on to this week’s Friday 5+1!

This Rocksolid metallic floor coating caught my eye when I was at Menard’s today, and thought it was way cool and worth sharing. The finishes look spectacular! The pearlescent finish looks really pretty too.
Now, I’m a big fan of the large LORAC Pro Palette, but I just bought this cute little LORAC Pro Matte Palette – it’s smaller, but I will use all of these colors (on the occasions that I actually wear makeup). I like that their eye shadows stay put and don’t wear off easily, like some other eye shadows do. I’ve bought their palettes on more than one occasion, and have always been pleased with the results.
I swear, I’ve used this stuff in the past, but Rub ‘n Buff does not disappoint. I tried cleaning the old hardware on this piece of furniture, but to no avail. I cleaned and scrubbed, and then used Rub n’ Buff to get it just the way I want it. Now I just need to finish the top of this dresser, and it will be ready to go. Here’s a sneak peek – I love the gold against the gray.
Paint Chip Goodness
I have shared on many occasions that my paint guy is a paint guru. He’s been in the business for years, and just knows a lot of stuff about paint/products/etc… For example, did you know that shellac is made from the lac beetle? Yes, it’s true. These are the sorts of things that my paint guy knows. And he was nice enough to give me these awesome cases filled with oversized paint swatches. How cool is that?
I love inspirational quotes, and I saw this one in a magazine and thought it was worth sharing.
My +1 for the week – my lack of self-control around these:
My oldest is headed out for spring break, so I gave him his Easter basket early, and a sugar high ensued. I never should have opened the bag.
Have a great weekend!
