Egads

Thought you might enjoy the before 
shot of yesterday's dresser.
I obtained it for free from pal Annie.
It had been behind "the little shed that could",
 exposed to the elements
for a loooong time.


Now she is all pretty,
with classy new knobs.


Elbow grease and complete lack of funds
go a long way for me.
What are you working on?

Truly, an amazing transformation. I'm enjoying getting outdoors and moving some plants around. We had a huge interlocking paver job done last summer (patios and sidewalks connecting all four buildings together), so now I can get my little garden back in shape once again.
Stay cool, Z.

Great job! Paint is a great solution so many times.

I found a table on the side of the road that I am going to fix up for my grand daughter as a desk. It's gorgeous and apparently a neighbors grandfather made it.

Wow, you did a great job!
I'm working on a little side drop leaf table with it's original glass knob. I found a can of oops in a pretty minty green and am about to do the second coat! Happy Tuesday!

Gorgeous Z ……. and, it was FREE !!!!! Mind you, even with all the money in the world, I'd much prefer an old piece of furniture that's been brought back to life with a coat of paint.
Working mostly in the garden at the moment but, there's a dressing table that needs painting ! XXXX

Today I started a quilt - I want winter bed quilts and have had the fabric for ages so now is the hour... garden is built and planted, and we have rain so I'm also turning my attention inward. I've been cleaning and purging as well this week with a goal of 100 items out of the house this month - I'm at 20...
I love what you've done with your painting, scrubbing and sanding - they look wonderful!
