Keeping Busy

I have had a lot on my plate these past few weeks but every now and then I get a little down time. I am not the best at relaxing so here are 2 things I have been working on.

I have made 2 baby blankets for my friends. I forgot to take the little boy blanket picture but here is the little girl one.

I also made some festive 4th of July deco with McKae today! I think they turned out pretty cute!

Let the Summer Projects Begin

Back a few years ago my parents got a new kitchen table and I got their old one. At the time we had a friend who offered to paint the table for us since I wanted it black. When they painted it they never put a protective coat over the top. That would be fine except I had the table in storage for over a year before we got married and into our own place. The paint started chipping really bad and pealing off so it needed a face-lift.

Having said all that, one of my projects on my list of "to-do's" has been to refinish this table. (here is the only pic I could find, but you can see how the paint is chipping and scuffed)

So I sanded it down, re-painted it, distressed the edges, and then put a much needed protective coat over the top!

Half sanded half not

The only thing missing now is the chiars being finished. Those will have to wait for another day!
