I was able to get a small project done this year. I forgot to take a before picture (and I just LOVE looking at other's before and afters). But here's an in-the-process photo. I bought this nice sturdy wooden shelf at a garage sale for $3. Robbie is always my helper, no matter what I'm doing he finds me and asks to help. I let him put the first black coat on since it's going to be painted over a couple more times.

I finished it off with black Bri-wax and loaded it up with a few prims. It's a nice addition to my dining room, especially with all the natural wood...
Best of all, I love how it only cost me $3, a little paint, and an afternoon of fun with my little guy. Oh, and look at the tiny butter mold I found, barely 1 1/4"... I was SO excited! It's the little round wood piece on the lower shelf, it has an acorn design... adorable!
Thank you friends, for your prayers and sweet words of encouragement on my last post. I'm grateful that I can come here to express my feelings and be showered with love when I need it the most. I've been staying busy since Ryan left. We're cleaning out bedrooms, getting ready for a garage sale next month... lots of kids clothes and toys to pass on.
Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a grand week~
