You KNOW that you are a hard person to please when your own work isn't good enough for yourself!!
I took advantage of the warm weather last week and sanded down the wavy top coat
on the table and applied a 'final' coat of finish this past Saturday.
It turned out stunning! The shine is incredible and the finish is so silky smooth ... I smile each time that I look at it because I'm so proud that
I DID THAT!
There are a few spots where lint/dust settled into the wet finish and I find my eyes wandering to those
spots and wondering if I should try again.
That's when the argument starts in my head ... and it isn't pretty ...
there's a lot of name calling
going on in there!
I really need to learn to be satisfied with my best effort instead of hold out for perfection.
Anyway ... since all of my projects seem to take forever to get done I thought I would
start to post some progress reports.
So besides the table, here is what else I've been working on:
Battening up the dining room walls.
We were using it as a computer room ( & the dogs were using is as their bedroom.)
It was boring, ugly and didn't have any style.
|Check out how unlevel the doorway was ... there was a 1+ inch difference from one corner to the other!|
|Primed and ready|
Just starting on this project ... removing
the veneer from the drawer fronts, will glue the veneer on the doors, add/replace
the missing relief detail on the top drawer and then paint.
It will be perfect in the newly finished dining room!

Reusable, washable canvas grocery bags with a scene from
my favorite Sesame Street Short:
I really thought this was going to be a quick project ... but everything about
it is very time consuming.
The one pictured below is one of the first ones that I completed. I've given
7 bags so far as 'thank you' and 'I love you' gifts ... I have
about 7 more to go to complete my thank-you list and then I can
move on to making some for our household ; )
