creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results


new table

I’ve been working on a new dining room set.  Last year I found an old oak worktable (possibly from a school?) for $20 and I just couldn’t leave it but I wasn’t sure what I would do with it.  I decided that I would love to try it out in my dining room but it needed more…chairs.  I had a friend build me some benches then w/in a week or so I found four wonderful chairs at a garage sale.

After several layers of paint then some sanding, (it still needs more distressing and a layer of brown paste wax) I can tell that I’m going to love it.  It’s not quite as practical for a large meal because of how narrow it is but we will make it work.

Last night my girl had the girls in her youth group over for a sleep-over.  It was fun to plan a special breakfast for them and use my table for the first time.

Sir Eli

Mr. Eli doesn’t make ‘the blog’ very often so it’s unusual for him to make it two days in a row but my niece captured this sweet shot of him this morning so I’m sharing it with you.
