So, I have had these deck chairs for about five years.
I bought them at a garage sale and painted the black canvas fabric in these stripes. They have been good little chairs, but the back supports weren't supportin' anymore, you almost flipped out of the chair. I had them folded up, ready to donate to thrift, when I came to my senses and realized I was going to give away something I might buy. I took the canvas out and thought for awhile. Think...think...think... (I had a smackerel of honey while I was thinking!). I then I saw a table with some cool criss-cross storage. Out came various pieces of wood--trim bed parts (that's parts, not bed pans!), fence boards, etc. I slapped some paint on them, did lots of chop saw work, put the nail gun to the test and came up with this sofa table and or wine bar.
I had also forgotten to show you these stools I painted similar to the black table. I did four of them--a friend had given them to me.
We went camping this weekend. We hadn't camped in about five or six years--I guess since my daughter had been born. So loaded with a new tent and new air mattresses, we took off. We had a great time and it was refreshing to "unplug" and decompress for a few days. Here is the creek (we say crick around here!) that was a few hundred yards from our campsite. My daughter, who often listens to a nature sounds CD, said it was great to have one playing all night long.
This is us, a motley, dirty crew.
We hiked to this falls--it was beautiful and this picture only shows the lower part. We also hiked around to the top of it and very carefully peered over the edge--it was rather amazing and in my son's words-freaky too! Towards the end of our hike my daughter got whiny and said she didn't want to go any further. I told her to stay positive and keep a good attitude. That is when she announced that she was positive she couldn't go any further! Her dad got her to laughing though, and she made it the rest of the way. All in all, it was a fantastic time, great to see God's wonders, but oh how I enjoyed my shower when we got home!
Enjoy your Monday tomorrow!
