Did you have fun adding beauty to your homes this week? I did! Mine was a big project (big shock, huh?) so I did not finish it - but I'm pleased with the progress made!
Here was my project - I really wanted a farmhouse table of some sort for our porch. After *much* searching - we finally found this one in a thrift store right down the street. For just under $100 it was a great buy as it is the table and four chairs all in great shape!
But, imagine with me if you will:
White + outdoors + little children + people who actually use furniture and live in this house = not clean, right?
And, you know - I can never leave anything alone - so I had to do something to this table!
Ready? I painted it a very dark gray, almost black and covered the top with delicious oil cloth. Idea courtesy of The Farm Chicks. I actually set out trying to choose a different fabric than what she shows in the pictures - but it was my favorite after looking through lots of choices!
There are a few "fold lines" still in the top of the fabric - when I figure out how to smooth those out since I can't iron this fabric, I'll show you a picture of the whole top!
I also had two chairs that were my great-grandma's and wanted to work those in too - here is the side by side since only one is finished! My girls both love this chair and it is a good thing we will have two of them!
I still have to do clear top coats, prime additional chairs and do lots more coats of paint on other chairs. But I'm so thrilled with this start!
For this coming week, let's add some form of worship to our havens. Either in how we do our work, creating something in worship or a place to worship, etc... Get creative with adding worship in your home this week!
We'll actually have two weeks to do this since next week I'll be sharing how David and I met - enjoy!
