Ok, so I just finished a project that made me smile! Most of the time things that I make tend to fall short of what I had envisioned. This time I was completely satisfied. I love to shop for furniture that needs a make-over. A few days ago I saw something on Pinterest that I thought I could tackle...making a bench out of a coffee table. I had seen an atrocious table at the local thrift store that I thought would work perfectly. I really should have taken a "before" picture, but then why would I do that,when rarely do projects turn out well enough to tell anyone about:) So, an "after" shot will have to do. We are always looking for chairs when people come over...this will help some. Also, we aren't small people, so the sturdy table(now bench) is perfect for our family.
Also, a few weeks ago, I refinished a table(something I picked up from the same thrift store in town)...made a simple runner and voila! Nothing fancy...just trying to keep myself busy and out of trouble---or the Looney Bin:)
