Well, I can't say that our spring break was restful, but I am glad we had it. My husband and daughter both ended up getting diagnosed with strep throat, and then my son got some other kind of nasty bug that he's still fighting. Wa-hoo! Lots of couch-sitting and cherry Icees (which my husband swears are necessary when one is sick).
But in between all the medicine doses, I got to work on a few projects! I've had this luggage rack in the basement for over a year. Ugly, dinged up, and with some seriously gross-looking straps to hold it together, it was no prize at the thrift store when I picked it up (for $5!).
I gave it a coat of primer, followed by two coats of creamy white (Country Dairy by Behr). Then my very accommodating husband removed the old, ugly straps and attached these new leather ones (bought by the yard from Joann's).
