First Market Day this Year

 Can't believe this is the first chance I had to visit our local flea market. The weather is beautiful and I'm excited to get digging for treasures. Not too many vendor this Memorial Day weekend, still had a good time seeing and smelling all the sights (and you do see sights at a flea market). We'll on this day the flea market gods were not kind to me, I didn't find anything. Still glad I went.

Color Makeover

This large end/ side table is really different. Not only is it made of solid wood, it's a heavy, deep table. The drawers give you extra storage space. This is the first project using General Finish milk paint in Linen. Two coats were needed, the finish was nice and smooth. The top was accented with  Minwax Gel Stain, I wish I could have tried the General Finish Java Gel. Overall I was please

 The sunflower canvas used in this setting was painted by a very talented artisit, Kimberly English. Visit  http://www.kimberlyenglish.com .

I'm Back


     
So the last few weeks I've been visiting my son in Indiana . What a busy time it was. Our my objective was to finish the garage drywall we started last year . Happy to say that we successfully hung over 15 sheets of drywall, tapped , Spackled and sanded. Done !!!
         

                                                        

           Had to share one of the many beautiful sunsets after a long, hard day at work.          

                                                                                     
           

We had a chance to catch a comedy show in a quaint town of Evansville, Indiana. Before the show we grabbed something to eat a German Restaurant . I knew it was going to be a great experience when we walk in and smelled all the amazing food aromas. We enjoyed local craft beer, fried pickle, and a delicious Ruben sandwiches and some laughs. We had such a great time.

Our time together always seems to go bye so quick. As we packed to come home, Brandon was packing to go back on the road for the next race. As we left for home, we caught a beautiful sunrise.

Check Out These Legs

Here's a side table that needed much help. It's a solid piece but I thought I'd try something new. 



I used a Colonial Style 7" legs to add height, cream distressed paint color complimented it with a darker top color. I think it adds a  whole new dramatic look. What ya think?
