Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far & haven't been affected by the terrible storms that seem to be EVERYWHERE these days. My hurt aches for all the poor people affected by the storms ~ they are all in my prayers.
I've been a bad blogger the past few days ~ I haven't gotten alot of creating done so I haven't done a post but today I thought I'd share with you my kitchen table I mentioned last week that I was repainting. Now let me say about mid-way thru this I wanted to just throw the stinkin thing out the front door & give up!!! BUT I didn't (it was very hard ~ I was majorly regretting my decision to paint it!) & I'm happy that I refrained. I still need to get some polyurethane & seal the top of it this weekend but for now the top should be ok with just the stain I used. Here's the pics:
1st layer of black
didn't like the black so painted it all white -REALLY didn't like that so here is 1st coat of 2nd layer of black -also I had started painting the top yellow - the other 1/2 of the top was green which I had repainted white & then black (see why I wanted to throw it out?!? lol)
finished table - now I need to repaint my poor chairs (& dust them too I see!)
I just love how it turned out! The top isn't quite as bright as the pictures show - my hubby was really worried when I put the yellow on & hadn't stained it yet ~ he wanted me to leave it white but I really didnt' like that! So he was out voted (like usual!)
Other than the table "drama", things have been pretty lazy here. The icecream truck made it's maiden voyage for the year down our street today ~ Cody & the Princess got lucky - the hubby actually had some cash so they got some icecream! The Princess informed us that now she was not only saving her money in her piggy bank to go see Mickey Mouse (DisneyWorld) ~ she was going to save some for the icecream man too!! It was so cute! Got to love a 4 year old's thinking!
here's one of them just bein silly!
Oh & I forgot to show pics of my co-op garden that we planted on Sunday ~ it ended up just being me & my mom & step dad ~ my aunt decided she was too busy to help which was fine ~we got most of want we wanted planted. We planted tomatoes, corn, zuchinni, green bell peppers, green beans, cucumbers, pumpkins, gourds,& potatoes. I need to find some brocolli, jalepenos & a little yellow tomato plants still. I'm excited for it all to start growing! I want to try to make some pickles this year & maybe can a few things.
Don't forget my giveaway ends on Sunday May 29th. I hope everyone has a great day & I hope BLOGGER gets its ISSUES worked out soon!! I haven't been able to leave comments all day & I know I'm not alone! I've been reading everyone's posts I promise!!
