A Tale of Two Tables

Today I got to do a little bit of painting. I had two tables that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. The first was a Duncan and Fyfe occasional table.

The table was white before, so I did a little chipping with a putty knife to give it some shabby charm. Then I finised up with an espresso burnishing glaze. Did I mention I LOVE this color?...more

Monday Musings: On Doing Nothing

Do you ever have a day where you just have to do absolutely nothing?  Today was that day for me, and it was awesome. But, I'm writing this at 2300, cuz I haven't done a thing all day today.  But today was cold and there was snow on the ground, and crazy we-don't-know-how-to-drive-in-snow Oklahomans out and about, so it was a good day to stay home. Did I mention it was cold? Cold enough for fuzzy slippers, a bathrobe, and a space heater! Even the animals were hunkered down in blankies....more
