Speaking of my neighbor, her daughter who is 7 now was born prematurely. She has been in Sawyer's class the last two years and is now on his soccer team as well. She is a healthy, thriving girl, and her parents feel very blessed and lucky to have her. Because she was a preemie, they participate in the March of Dimes each year. Last year, we joined them; this year the boys have to miss it because of soccer, but Emmy and I will be walking with them. If you wish to donate to this worthy cause, you can click here to get to Emmy's fundraising page.
And again, speaking of those same neighbors.... remember the amazing door table I showed you a couple weeks ago that Travis built?
Well, I finished it up.... I cleaned up the top, but kept some of the paint on it as I liked the patina and look. I gave it a couple coats of polycrylic to seal it in. On the base, I painted it with Pantone's Whitecap Gray, lightly distressed it, and rubbed Minwax Golden Oak Stain over.
Sunday, Travis helped me take it over to the barn for this month's sale, so I snapped a couple quick pictures in the driveway first. It will be all set up with dining chairs at the barn, and when that happens, I will share with you! For now, enjoy the scenes of my driveway....
I love it! It would make an awesome desk, dining table, even a kitchen island as long as glass was put on top to keep the surface more even. Imagine if this was your craft desk? potting bench? The possibilities are endless!
Happy Tuesday! I am off for a run with friends, then to work on setting up our barn space a bit and then I hope to enjoy the sunshine! Have a beautiful day!
