I saw this cute little table at my favorite place , You all know by now Goodwill $6.99 . It had this real cool detail below the drawers but it had a lot of buckled and peeling veneer. Wasn't sure about working with it. Well I went to bed bath and beyond to look for bedding and I walked past the hand napkins and I spotted the design . They were on clearance for $3.99 . No brainer then I rushed back to Goodwill keeping my fingers crossed that the table would still be there. Score . Now home to put it all together.
I found another sad and lonely rocking chair at my favorite hang out Good will . I will be 60 soo and I remember my Mom telling me that back in the day Dr. Spock , not the Star trek character to let the baby cry awhile. Well when I cam along she said to heck with that " I'm gonna rock and snuggle my baby girl" So I always had space for a rocking chair when my kids were babies. And when my grandbaby was born I think I had a rocking chair in every room. So hopefully this little beauty will find a good home.
I found this nasty looking rocking chair again at my favorite hang out. Good will.$12. She was really dirty and the finish was all crackly looking . I think it is called alligatoring.
I found this sad looking fold down desk at the Mission shop . Some had done a horrible faux finish on it. Not even sure what look they were going for the color was just down right ugly . But they did use a good paint and it was a mess to get . I don't usually use stripper I like to sand the finish down but this puppy needed the heavy duty stripper.
I purchased this Oak table years back from money left to me by my uncle. It gets a lot of use and it was looking a little beat up. For sentimental reasons I couldn't part with it. Plus it's hard to find good solid wood furniture and a table with 4 leaves that make it huge. I had seen a similar post here on hometalk and saved it to show my husband. He liked the idea. I had to wait for a week of yucky weather cause I love being outside working in the yard. So here is my first week of summer project.
I'm going to have to look for a 12 step program to help me with my Goodwill addiction. I actually tried walking away from dresser several times ,but it won my heart and next thing I know I'm loading it into the jeep. I have never seen anything like it before .
I went to a local Christmas bazzar and the church itself had a booth of odds ands and collectables. This poor little chair had a price tag of $6.00 . My friend and my and my Daughter in law both said you gotta get it. So off it went into the back of the Jeep . I tucked it safely in the basement cause if my husband saw it would have a fit. I have tons of projects going on all the time.
This pond started out several years ago with a plastic tub and a couple of spillovers. They were a constant problem because they would leak and the fish could never make it down to the bottom pond with out jumping out . I think this will be the final plan. Unless I come up with another crazy Idea.
I have seen these stones done on a smaller scale but here is one upsized . My elephant ear plant out did itself this year . The leaves were huge . I actually used a few of the small ones for the stones
I found these 2 little white folding rockers on the roadside. The white paint was chalking off but I knew they were sturdy with no rotten wood. So once again I'm dragging big stuff home in my tiniest car. I do have a big SUV but this little car makes it more of an adventure. So here goes the rebirth of these two chairs!
