Yea--the wind finally calmed down enough this afternoon so I could stain and poly the bench. I didn't want a bunch of cotton from the trees stuck in it (my allergies have not enjoyed the wind!). I am pleased with the results and wish there was room in my entry for this. I am taking it to the farmer's market tomorrow and if it doesn't sell there, it is out to the antique booth with it. The pictures aren't great--my lens was filthy.

I have other things to show you, but it is late and I have to leave at 7 AM for the market so you will have to be patient and wait until Sunday evening or Monday Ü. I am off for a girl one-night get-away tomorrow evening. Have a fun weekend. PS--it is supposed to be 39 degrees tonight, BRRR!


  1. It turned out beautifully and how lucky you are to have such a gorgeous model around to show how the hinge works!

  2. Nicely done bec - It turned out beautiful.
