I’m on a roll!

***update*** It is finished!



After going through all the furniture moving and building, you’d think I was done for a while. I thought I was……but then I got the circular saw urge.

Yea…I get these wierd urges..not for chocolates or wine..not even for a marathon TV session…but to pick up an electric or gas powered tool and build stuff.

I decided with all my scrap wood to build a small table to go next to the sofa..especially since I took apart my old one to make George an extra tall ottoman……

So, I “played” for about an hour, and this is the result…..

I thought…”well that will work” and I painted it. I checked it out next to the settee and it was four inches short….well drat!

Then, after sitting on my swing staring at it for about five minutes, I thought “I’ll just put a top on it!”


After marking where it could connect with the top “posts” I drilled pilot holes and screwed the top on..filled the little screw holes and painted it.

yes, those are two different shades of turquoise…… I don’t yet know if I want to sponge paint the base with the dark color or to free paint a bird or flowers on the top.
