Spring Cleaning projects

Actually, yesterday was the first day of summer so technically it’s summer cleaning. 🙂

First I want to show you a couple of tables I’m refinishing. Silly me, I thought I could do this in a day. LOL. It’s been 2 weeks! It’s pretty tedious. I picked these up at Goodwill for $14 a piece. They were both covered in two layers of paint. White underneath and grey on top.

The first picture shows the I’ve already removed the grey from the top and the drawer. I thought they’d look nicer as stained wood. I’m not sure if I’m patient enough to remove all the paint for the stain. It looks like they may have had water damage on top (white spots). If I can’t figure out how to remove the damage, I may just repaint them!

The second project I’ve been working on is planting flowers in the beds. This is a shot of part of the back yard. It was raining at the time. I can’t wait til everything start filling out. We also planted 3 tomato plants. YUM!

Third project I want to work on is my art studio. It’s such a cluttered mess! Piles of “stuff” on every flat surface! I have LOTS of ideas for some new art projects that I want to start on, but they will have to wait until I get this room in order. I thought if I posted pictures I’d be more likely to clean it up! Have a great week!!
