The Weekend Report

The weekend is over and most of us are up and back to work. I am busily making beads this morning but wanted to show you what I was up to this weekend. I have discovered that my new favorite thing might be painting furniture. I have done a lot of it in the past, but it was usually just one color. I have now discovered decorative painting. I love it and it's so much fun. So here is a buffet for my dining room that I working on. We have a great flea market here , I found this cabinet for 70.00 and it was wood! Woohoo! It still need a coat or polyurethane and a top. I am thinking about pouring a concrete counter top. That might be next weekends project. But however it ends up, I will be sure to post pictures.
This was my other handy work, a big pot of spaghetti sauce. If you have a garden you know that the tomatoes are overflowing this time of year. This is my second big batch of sauce this month. We are freezing it for winter but I think I will sneak some for lunch before we pack it up.

Have a great Day!

  2. I totally thought of you when I was painting! I thought to myself, "how fun, Dori gets to do this everyday" The fun things about paint is what you see is what you get.

    Hope you're doing well.

  4. Cindy,
    It's going in the dining room. See the striped wall behind the buffet? Yep, that's the wall it will be on. I believe you can never have too many stripes! I'll post pictures when it's all done.
