We had a great weekend with family!!
That's my daughter, my Mom,
my granddaughter, and my daughter-in-law!
They are a colorful group inside and out.
We are visiting the gift shop where my Mom works.
If you visit Louisville, NE,
check out Coop de Ville and Feathers.
Today I thought I would share some projects
that Rachel and I were working on .
My granddaughter found this side table
in the neighbor's trash.
She loaded it up in her golf cart and brought it to my garage.
At first I thought, "not so much"
and was going to throw it away.
But then I thought I could salvage the round wood.
So my husband cut all of the spindles off.
Rachel had the idea for a large wall clock
so this worked perfect!
After some wood filler and sanding,
she brushed on a brown paint base.
We used a little vaseline on the edges over the brown
before applying an off white paint
(Crumb Cookie - Olymia - Lowes)
Then I made a stencil for the roman numerals
and brushed in a brown black .
Mark had to chisel out a square in the back
so the clock mechanism would set inside.
Now a little sanding for distressed edges,
and the old pink table has turned beautiful wall decor.
That same day we also mitered some corners
on pine boards and gave an old dorm mirror
a new look.
This is another project we made together -
an upholstered pallet ottoman.
Love our project days!!
