Labor Day

September 2, 2014

Hello!
So, Labor Day has come and gone & another summer with lots of memories!  We spent the long weekend at the lake with Dinesh having four of his buddies over.  The kids had a blast tubing and swimming, and Mr. Craft and I actually took it easy most of the time instead of the usual, which is always finding stuff to fix around the house.  We also skyped with Katryna - it was so good to see her.  She has certainly settled in well and was looking forward to starting her classes on yesterday. We text each other everyday just so we know she is ok .......... yeah, I know that sounds crazy, but that little rule was established by Mr. Craft before she left.  Either way, it is great to hear from her every day.


                                   

On Sunday I decided to give an old bench a new look.  I picked it up at a flea market a few years back as I loved how the head board and foot board of an old twin bed was used to make the bench - just love it.  So after looking at a bunch of colors, I decided to give it a really pretty yellow .......  couldn't quite finish it as I wanted to use an accent color on the round spools against the back - will finish it when we go back up to the lake in two weeks.

Here's a picture of the bench prior to painting - I meant to take a picture half way through painting, but was so into it...... I guess that didn't happen.  Will post some before and after pictures once it's done.


                                   


Also this weekend I pulled out a dresser I had bought at a flea market about a year ago - the big question with this is, what color should I paint it - and should I use Chalk Paint or Miss Mustard Seed Paint.


                                             


I have a few other pieces that are sitting in the garage which I should pull out and start working on - hopefully between work & my card making I can start on the dresser sometime soon - would love to find a great home for it once I paint it.

Will be back soon - until next time ...........
