First, thank you everyone for your prayers for my nephew and family. I don’t have any further news at this point, so we’ll just keep praying.
Next, I thought I’d just show a little project I did this week, just to let you know that sometimes I actually do something with my thrift store finds.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for a little table for the front porch. I was hoping to find wicker, but when I came across this at United Volunteers for $3, I decided it would do.
I did just a teeny bit of sanding where the rusty parts were visibly flaking off. I probably should have done a better job at it, but I figured since this will get minimal use, it wasn’t a big deal.
Next, I traced around the table top onto newspaper, and cut out two circles, which I used to cover the glass top and bottom, kind of tucking the paper under the rim. Then I primed and spray painted it with some dark bronze that I already had.
It matches the chairs nicely and will be the perfect spot to set a glass of lemonade. Incidentally, the chairs were a Goodwill find last year, $12 each, and were exactly what I was looking for. (The sidewalk chalk design is courtesy of Skippy and Pinkerbelle.)
