Hey, I am still here, still working away. I didn't do much last week, there was no Farmer's Market because of the fair. I have always been a term paper the night before kind of a girl. In other words--I work well under pressure and didn't feel any last week, so, why work or plan ahead Ü. Hubby had the computer tied up most of the week--he was finishing his online classes that he is taking to get his administration endorsement. He hopes to get the athletic director job this next year. When the computer was available--I wasn't.
I did do a few projects around the house. I painted my entry way half wall chocolate brown. It was so dirty from kids kicking their shoes off that I decided it needed to be a darker, more dirt like color. I also touched up all of my white trim work. Wow, what an amazing difference that makes!
I also put up these wall words that my sister had bought for me. They are in my dining room wall. They are from a company called Upwords Living. They were relatively easy to put up. I enjoy them more than I thought I would. I think we will all get this particular verse memorized!
Look at this cedar chest I found at a garage sale for $5! It looks like a three drawer chest of drawers, but the top opens and the bottom drawer is also cedar. It is made by the Roos company who made cedar chests from 1916-1951. It has a stamp on the inside lid, and also a paper on the bottom drawer indicating the chest number. I haven't been able to find the same one online. The finish was in horrible shape--I think it may have been left outside or something. But, the cedar inside is in very good condition, it just needs a good cleaning.
I am painting it black (my current favorite to make anything look good!). I would like to find new harware, but am having a difficult time finding the same size. I would use plates and knobs, but I am not finding the plates either. I will probably put the origial hardware back on, get it out to my antique booth, and then keep looking for something else. I will show you pictures tomorrow--it had to make a quick trip into the garage because a sudden storm came up.
Here is a little table I painted. I thought I took a before picture, but couldn't find it. It was your basic pine endtable, with lots of scratches. I haven't decided on a knob yet for this--I will probably use an old glass one. Excuse the lovely cardboard background. I took this one quick before the hail hit.Have a peaceful day and tune in tomorrow for more pictures (see if I say that--then I will post Ü).
