We’re havin’ a HEATWAVE!

Summer took it’s sweet ole time arriving here in the Pacific Northwest, and now it’s here with a vengeance!!!  Mid to upper 90’s all week.  Hit 99 here at home today.  I know that’s nothing compared to many parts of the country, so I shan’t complain any further. 

Let’s do some JUNKIN”!

These are the things I found during our daycation.  Vintage rolling TV cart?  I totally remember having one like this!

Darling little round table.  Fairly well damaged top, but a  little time and elbow grease will turn this into a beauty. 

LOVE the tapered edges on this table!

Lots of elbow grease needed here too!

Wonder how many layers of paint I’ll discover when I start sanding this one?!?

Almost TOO rusty old corner shelf.  What, you didn’t know there was such a thing as ‘too rusty’?  Well, for LOOKS, no; but structurally . . .at some point things will rust all the way through.  The remedy?  A clear spray coat will halt the rusting process, but not hide any of that beautiful rust!

A few shutters and a table leg.

NOW if it will just cool down enough that I can stand to go outside and paint!

  1. I love some of those tables. Working with chemicals and paint make me sick. Do you have any suggestions on how to work and not breath in fumes.

    • Debbie, I have asthma so the chemical fumes make me sick too. So, I don’t use chemicals, and only use water based paints and varnishes AND do all my painting (furniture and big stuff) outside. Occasionally I do have to use spray paint, and I just make sure I am not ‘upwind’ from where I am painting. I do believe thay make respiratory masks that filter out fumes as well as particles; but I haven’t felt the need to buy one. I have a ‘dust catcher’ bag on my electric sander and even my BIG bekt sander is hooked up to a shop vac to draw away the dust.
