Small projects

The cold of winter finally hit, though it's not THAT cold.  Still too cold to work in the garage and paint, so I am stuck inside doing small projects

I bought this little table at Salvation Army for $8.99... isn't it just the best when you walk in and find EXACTLY what you were looking for?

I really like the shape and it's the perfect size, not to mention the price!

A few weeks ago we finally found a recliner we could all agree on, and since installing it I found a need for a small table between it and the couch

Cause the Beagle needs her bev and remotes nearby ya' know... she is shameless that dog.

Here's the table, done

I might add a stencil to the flared area on each end

I am also working [slowly] on a cross stitch for my sister.  I have not cross stitched since '98, so the learning curve, especially with my eyesight now that of an over 40... whew, this is gonna' take a while

Sloooooooow progress... but if I post it here, ya'll will keep me working on it, right?

And then there was the whole Quad debacle.

D had a friend who was selling his sons 50cc childs quad, something A has wanted for EVER.
Something I would prefer he never, ever get.

I was out numbered, and indeed, as predicted and I am starting to wonder if in fact it's BECAUSE I predicted it, within 5 minutes of setting off he had crashed it into a tree, sailed right over the handlebars landing on a pile of rocks in the woods.

A pony would NEVER run headfirst into a tree.  Just sayin'...

He was fine, and spent the rest of yesterday learning how not to do that again....  I on the other hand need to get busy covering these new grey hairs.  OY!  L'Oreal, take me away!

Your little table turned out so cute! You did a great job! I'm with you on the poney versus Quad, I'd definitely go for the pony! Glad he wasn't hurt!
Thanks for visiting, enjoyed browsing your blog! You've done some amazing makeovers! Sure wished I lived close to that Green Demo place!
