You may recall when I blogged about this little table, asking advice on what to do with it:
The number one most popular response was to paint it white.
So, I did:
I love it! Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to do this!
As for my other projects: I am behind in creating more pillows for my handmade Etsy shop (I sold one today!) so I am going to get onto that in the coming days.
Realistically, though, pillow-making may have to wait until after Ben's first week of school, which begins already on AUGUST 5th! I know, I know: it's excruciatingly early.
For the last several days I've been helping a friend's sister with their mother's estate; we had a sale at her home two days this past weekend. I noticed among the items for sale some really wonderful square dancing pins the mother had earned. "You can't sell these!" I cried. "No one wants them" she said.
When I spied a ruffly square dancing outfit also on the sale rack, an idea was born. Now I have the outfit, a coordinating old tablecloth, and the pins in my possession; I aim to make four pillows -- one for each sibling -- out of these keepsakes.
