Then before that I didn't feel like working on the table or chairs so I posted a tour of a guest bathroom as a distraction.
That's sort of what is going on today.......... a distraction. I see a pattern.
So I'mma-gonna post about something else I made to distract me from EVER completing the dining room.
Enter the giant yardstick project. (Thank goodness the one my mom used to whack my hinder with wasn't this size!)
You've seen them on the internet, but I didn't follow a specific tutorial so no credit is given. If you made one and posted a picture, thanks - that's where I got the idea.

Because I had to measure on the measure. Math. Yuck.
Then after I made my marks and painted the numbers all pretty, I realized that I hadn't painted the whole thing yet, or stained it. I didn't even know which I would do.
Einstein I'm not.
So I painted it and re-marked the marks.
And ended up with this......
The measuring stick was such a novelty, a certain 5 year old even marked the height of his playmates on it!
Those two cuties in the pictures are worth all the number calculations my math challenged brain ever had to calculate.
I did not take these photos, but I'm claiming them anyhow.
Wonder what my daughter in law thinks? Wouldn't you love me for a mother in law? Sneak in and take photos unannounced and then put them on the internet?
