Just In Time!

I got this project done just in time to go on the truck for Texas! I think they turned out great! It's the first time I ever covered a whole chair! Mostly I just do chair bottoms, so I was a little nervous when I start the project! And I love the way the nail heads look when they are showing! I had some trim I could have used, but I thought it would make the chairs look to formal!

Spencer had to make his appearance in this picture!

Sneak Peek

Thought I would give you a sneak peek at some of the items rolling out of the workshop! I made the bed 14 years ago out of any old thing I could find in the scrap pile! I used it for several years, then it got put out behind the warehouse! Thought of it the other day and decided to take it with us! It was my first welding job and I am pretty proud of it! Hope somebody else likes it as much as I do! I don't use it any more cause it is queen size and we have a king bed!
A few things that were used to create the bed:

Old water pipes

Arm to a tobacco sprayer

Sewing machine legs

Fence section

Porch rails

This table base is from an old pedal ban saw! Cool!
I think it is a piece of art!

Small side table.

These spring tables are my creations as well!
I didn't weld them, Craig did!
They are a hoot! They are still springy

Don't miss out on all the cool stuff
and fun that will be had by all

at the Round Top Show in Texas!

Before and After

We had fabulous weather yesterday, 72 degrees! So I got tons of things done! Thought you would like to see the before and after of these chairs! I love how they turned out! There is a set of 4 and I think they will make someone very happy! Gotta go, pretty this morning, going to get some more stuff done before the rain comes!
These look blue, but they are actually gray. The same gray I used for the show at the Red Barn in Jan. and it was a hit! You can see the gray in the picture I posted in the last post.

All Work And No Play!

All work and no play seems to be the theme for me lately! I have been up to my eyeballs in tax paper work (pulling my hair out). I finally got finished last night! Thank goodness! But all work and no play makes Theresa very restless! I took a break on Saturday and Craig and I moved some stuff around in the house! I get tired of looking at things the way they are, I just need a change! And I have been going through that, less is more stage! Trying to thin things out! You know, less to dust!
My living room is so small there is not much I can do with it, only two ways to put my sofa, against the window (the way it was) or pulled out in the middle of the floor! But I was very happy with the changes, I think I will be satisfied for a little while!

Next week I have to get started on my Texas load! Not much time left, but the weather has been so yucky it's hard to work on things! I can't wait to see all my friends! I love Texas!
