|It doesn't look bad in this photo, but the finish was becoming faded and several places were worn thru entirely. I've had this table for 20+ years - my children grew up eating at this table.|
We refinished my old table. I thought about painting it - and I might still do that one day - but once I sanded it down a little it was easy to see how nice it would look with just a coat of stain and a couple of coats of a Polyurethane finish. We're on the fourth application of Poly, and I think that's gonna do it. A couple days for it to dry and set up completely, and we can go back to eating on it. Someday I hope the bf will make me a long, gorgeous farm table, but til then this table has lots of memories behind it.
Another item on the January "to-do" list:
|Salvia, Sea Holly, Coneflower and Monarda seedlings-to-be!|
Last fall I gathered up and saved seeds from some of my favorite plants I already have in the garden, with intentions of quadrupling my flowers without having to spend any money. Wish me luck!
And here is what we did tonight:
|An after-work glass of wine outside on the patio...|
I am so loving this weather! It was almost 70 degrees when I got home from work tonight! Last year about this time we were shoveling snow. This year I think we've had 2 or 3 days of less than 65 degree days. So nice. Thank you Mother Nature! Come on Spring!
I'll be back in a day or two with the afters of the table and another item we crossed off the list last weekend.
Til then...peace, y'all.
