New Refinished Desk!

Well my latest refinishing project at Relish has been on the go for a while, since it was interrupted by the arrival of little Oscar. But now that I'm mostly back to functioning, here it is!!

I found a cute little desk in my travels, although it was pretty beat up and sad looking. But a couple of coats of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue and voila! (And thank you to my intern Jackie for helping me out with this one!)

The desk just came out on the floor this past week, and you can see it in the window right now. I hope to see you soon so you an check out this desk, and my other recent goodies!

Patio Weather

In these sweltering days of summer, what could be more appealing than food & drinks on a lovely shaded patio?

Well, we had the perfect patio table, but it was dying a slow and painful death left outside in the elements without the proper protection.

So I finally took the time to sand down the top and put on a waterproof sealant on the tabletop so we could enjoy our patio for the rest of the season.

Don't you just love how wonderfully imperfect this table is?

I have to say thank you to my neighbours (thanks, Brian and Lindsay!) for deciding to get rid of this table - it was a great find for me!
