The FIRST actually HOT day of the year!

Seriously, I think this is a RECORD late date in the year for it to get HOT.  Hot enough for me to wish the AC at home wasn’t inoperable!  Yesterday was the perfect ‘work outside day’, a little overcast, nice breeze and wonderfully tepid!

Got this little stand painted; still deciding on whether or not to distress it.

One of Michael’s ‘make do’ tables with a bar stool base.  We usually use plywood for the tops; just happened I’d recently found this nice butcher block top at a thrift store to use instead.

Nice drop leaf table. 

This one needed a bit of repair work before I painted it.

Old wood kitchen canisters with DOVE TAILED sides!!  I really hated to cover up the dove tail work with paint, but the old decals were really grubby and HAD to be sanded off.  And if I’m going to do THAT much sanding, I’m GONNA paint!

Also got a couple of ‘built from scratch’ pieces that Michael built painted.  A crazy productive day.  Making up for it today in the heat!  I can handle about 20 minutes outside then I have to go in and cool off.  Rest of the finished pictures coming soon!
