Another rainy day in Southwest Ohio.
I should be celebrating my Blog's 1st Birthday but I am a lame party planner at the moment. I promise I will host a celebration with links and give aways soon, but I am not quite there yet. Matter of fact I am going to take a little time off to get some projects done and do a bit of revamping on my blog, my home and life in general.
So I may be MIA for a few weeks. I will miss you but I need some time for some good changes here at Frippery. I hope you won't forget me while I am gone.I thought I would share a few redo's that I have worked on lately. Remember the GW table I painted red for my craft room? (BTW that room is one of the things I have yet to complete) Well after looking at this sturdy table covered with glitter and supplies, I thought," That would be the perfect table for my family room!"
So we removed the legs and hauled it down stairs once again.
We got out the trusty DeWalt sander and hubs and I took turns sanding the beat up top.
It took several hours, but what a feeling of accomplishment seeing that worn top transform. After the sanding was complete a few coats of stain and policrylic...
I have a lovely new (to me) table for casual dining, games, projects, etc. Sorry for the dark photo, but as I have told you lately, not many sunny days here. All in all a great $30.00 investment. Plus, I took the table that just wasn't working for me here, and that will be my new craft table. I love it when things work out.
I also finished a little project for a friend. Kathy gave me this trunk to paint for her ages ago. I am ashamed to say it took me forever to get to it. I used to do lot's of painted furniture for people but I am just not feeling it any more.
I am relieved to have this finished and I will be delivering it this week. I hope she likes it as I am plotting a little trade, unbeknownst to her. You see she has the most fabulous old Victorian house and garden that I would love to share with all of you. On top of that she is a vintage collector and has such a knack for display that hours could be spent admiring all of her vignettes.
I am going to ask politely if I can come and photograph her wonderful home. I know she wants her chest back...right? Tee hee.
Seriously, you will be floored when you see this place, it is magical.
So, once again TTFN, I will be back in a few weeks. Hugs and smooches til then.
Have a Wednesday full of opportunities, P.
