We’re not waiting for the world to change

Just for the RAIN and cold to change into sunny and warm!  Seriously, yesterday’s HIGH temperature was a record LOW.  How pathetic is that?!?!?    The local farmers are suffering because crops are not ripening.  And all the extra brush growth from the excess rain is probably going to make for a terrible fire season.  We need a BREAK!

And when it does get warm/dry enough to paint again, I’ve got a stockpile of projects to work on.  This HUGE wood coffee table. (standing on end because it takes up half the trailer otherwise!)

Itty bitty cutie patootie table.

Beautiful wood barrel table, but it has several water stains.  Going to try to repair this one and leave it this color.

It looks quite reddish in the photos, but it’s really a nice dark walnut color.

It doesn’t appear to have been varnished, so that will make it easier to work with.  HOPING I’ll just have to sand out the stains, and sand over the whole piece just a little and re-stain it with some Watco oil.

UGLY plastic fake wood glove box.

I’ve re-done several old plastic fake wood sewing boxes, so why not a glove box?  Will paint and glaze the outside and apply vintage book pages to the inside.  I have another sewing box to finish up, somewhere around here.  Probably started to work on it one of those days the sun came out for ten minutes.  I dash out and start to paint, only to have to run for cover after barely getting started!

This little guy is in TERRIBLE shape!  Good thing he was ‘priced accordingly’.  That white wicker bench didn’t need ANY work done to it, and it has already gone to our space in Camas.

The top of this thing looks like it was used for wood carving practice!   Nothing a good sanding won’t cure.

Couple od chunky wood frames.  Slim pickins on frames lately!  I need a good rummage sale to really stock up on frames.  There is literally no such thing as too many frames.  They always sell quickly, and I’m constantly getting requests to sell them on-line.

Off to ‘stock and spruce’ both malls today.  Don’t forget Stars Birthday sale starts tomorrow.  And MY SPACE is 40% off all regular priced items for the sale.  (red sale tag items not included in the sale)
