Going Blonde



While the rest of the nation hit the stores on Black Friday, I took advantage of our two day reprieve from an early winter and painted the thrift chairs I got on my Birthday. Now they will by no means pass a close-up inspection, for while I consider myself fairly competent in a multitude of craft genres, Spray painting requires a certain finesse and patience that I simply do not possess. Maybe in the Spring I will take them back out and re-do them, but probably I will simply embrace their little imperfections and never look back.

The table is still in the process of being stripped down and will require a couple more days of work. Of course in my true 'put the cart before the horse' form, I eagerly removed the current dinning set, so there are currently four lovely chairs sitting in my kitchen and NO table. Sweet hubby hesitantly asked this morning...."How long will we be without a table?" Sorry, honey! Soon I promise:)

On a completely different note~
Last night as my little one was saying his prayers he spoke his list of things he was thankful for......

"Lord, I am thankful for Christopher Columbus, technology,
and lots of things Lord. But, mostly Lord, I am thankful for my
Parents and Me. Amen."
Yes, I teared up then and just now as I typed it. ~Rhonda

How sweet he is and how blessed you are!
Those chairs look really nice - can't wait to see all of the pieces together. And as far as eating goes - isn't that why we have laps? To hold our plates?
Have a wonderful weekend!
