The forwarder I go, the behinder I get

There are probably 14 projects started in my studio (dining room) right now, in addition to the permanent furniture that inhabits it.  Not much room to walk, still less to roll, as my computer chair is usually how I get around in there. That way I can pivot from task to task without wasted time and the least wear and tear on my knees.  I know that one of my New Year's Resolutions was to finish things (and I fully intend to), but I had in mind that it be before I start something new. I finished 2 items tonight-not great pics, because not much room to stage!

Here are some quick before's.... and afters.

Mustard to....

Black!  Already has a new home.


Abandoned farm table that landed in front of my garage.

The side extensions were strong enough but dated.

Linoleum squares were glued to the top which I removed.

I stripped the top.

Added some wood strips for better definition.

Painted, stained, glazed the table.

Voila!  New life.  Will be listed on Craigslist for sale. [Update: No longer available]

Will keep plugging away as I am able.  I love what I do. Eventually, my dining room will empty out and be just like everyone else's.

As ever,
La Verne
