It's been so cold here in Northern California that
1. It's hard to get motivated to go outside & crack open a can of paint
2. It takes FOREVER for paint to dry
3. I whine a lot about it
But with a vision in mind, a cold but sunny day, long underwear, and a mug of hot chocolate, things get done. A plain little set of kid's furniture was squealing for a make-over, starting with a robin's egg blue base. After applying the big-enough-to-pluck-'em cherry fabric, I went over it with two coats of polyurethane to make it more durable, and somewhat washable. Then I added the jumbo rick-rack around the table top edge and the chair slats. It's for sale in the shop right now, since this is our open weekend, just waiting for two little buns to warm it up. I don't know what it is about small furniture that makes me so happy.
But I do know what it is about these new clogs I just got on Ebay that makes me so happy! They're so bright and cheerful and paisley and PINK! They make me want to march right up to Spring, kick it in the shins and say "Hey! Hurry up, already!"
Here's how my Russ Russ spent his happy morning in the sun...
