Hello one and all! How has your day been going?
Everyone is taking a nap now after our meal (I fixed an amazing lasagna). I am planning to make a pound cake this afternoon too.
I thought I would share with you the latest project my husband has just completed (all from a picture no less)!
He made this from plywood, pallets and some trim. We used Valspar #3002-3A Roasted Chestnut, then used Minwax gelstain to age the piece. He did an amazing job didn't he? I think he surprised himself LOL!
He has two classes next month, so no other big items are in the works for now. I think he should make some of those cute little stools, though. don't you?
I have been buying wood bowls where ever I can find them, and have gotten around to painting and aging a few today, as well as a cute little wooden tote.
I need to get on the ball though with some handwork, crosstitch, as well as some bowl fillers though.
I also want to show you something I like to collect. Little chairs. Aren't these cute?
This little gray one I picked up for $2 at a yard sale this summer. The little blue one sitting in another child's chair I picked up at an estate sale for $18. I love the chippy paint on it.
On a final note, I took the leaf out of the dining room table. I am having a heck of a time figuring out what type of centerpiece to use. How do you downplay a very formal cherry dining table and chairs. I did make chair covers for the backs out of muslin. Maybe I will make a burlap runner again like I did last year.
Well bye for now. I hope you have a great week!
