More Befores than Afters

JWS came home from the auction last night with this. 
I love these chairs, they are so comfortable
and fun! 

They almost remind me of when people
actually sat around outside 
make me want to take the time to do that! 

The paint is a little rough, 
but the chair is is great shape. 
A little sanding and some spray paint
I will be sitting. 

He also brought this to me. 

The chair and the basket. 

Some chalk paint
the material below
(that he also brought home)
and it should be a treasure! 

And one before...

that has an after
just in the nick of time. 

This horse was in this shape
when my friend asked when she could pick it up
on Monday night. 

She knows me and how I work,
but I was still afraid to tell her that I had not started it! 
This morning it is done 
ready to be
given to a lucky couple 
expecting their first baby!  

It has been a hectic week, 
VBS backdrop,
the horse,
1024 fish ready for the 
Great Fish Installation 
at the church tomorrow,
painting the new addition at work.

Everything has fallen into place though
I am thankful for that
off to some yard sales before I go to work!   

How many more "befores" do I need?
