These are two of the tables. They did not weather well
so after sanding them all down, I re-painted them
and then sprayed them with spray varathane. Hopefully they'll
hold up to the rainy weather this summer.
I found this little stool at Value Village last week for $1.49.
This is an orangy red which I didn't really care for.
I painted it this
Krylon's Ivy Leaf. I sanded it then primed it with Zinsser first.
I love the green which is almost an apple green.
The paint cost more than the stool!
Here's my painting station in the shade of the back yard.
It was sunny and hot with a gentle breeze ~ perfect for this task!
See the wooden basket under the white table?
It's in the process of a makeover which I will post soon.
These are the other goodies I found at Value Village all, including the stool, for
under $15.00 (including our taxes)!
I worked my magic with the wooden tote. It was hand made by a wood
crafter in the province as his stamp is on the bottom. It had potential.
I loved the little aqua bottle (.49cents) and the Pyrex bowl. The 5 cloth
napkins are by April Cornell and are brand new as the stickers were still
on them! The painting was $3.49 and had a price in pencil on the back
of $34.99. It's a cheap oil painting and there were actually 2 of them
but I liked the look of the scenery in this one. It will go in our bedroom
but I may paint the frame.
I really enjoy going in to Value Village to see what goodies I can find.
We had 2 severe thunder storms that past two nights but the days
have been beautiful and sunny. I took this next picture on Thursday
morning while on my walk.
Our church is participating in "Love Fredericton" on Saturday.
I have been assigned to go to the 4 places where some church members
will be volunteering and take pictures. It should be a fun assignment.
I hope your week has been good and that you have a wonderful weekend!
