Today was my first day back in the "workshop" for almost two weeks. Do you ever feel like you just need a break from the same old same old to recharge your batteries? Well, I did. It's mid-September here in Arizona and the forecast for the week is still hovering around 105 degrees. That's an improvement over August, but it's still hot. When I went to kiss Isabelle today as I put her down for a nap, she wrinkled up her cutie nose and said, "You stink!" I did. I'd been out working on this buffet for a client.
And prepping this piece for primer...
the shop. You pick the color and help me decide on new hardware or a finish for the existing hardware. If you're interested, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something exciting happened over the weekend. As Zac was pulling out a big pot to whip up some spaghetti for dinner (I wasn't kidding when I said that's all he makes), he found my missing hardware piece sitting in the bottom of the pot. Hooray! And why was there a piece of hardware in my pot? That's kids for you.
When I posted about the missing hardware a few weeks ago, an amazing reader and furniture refinisher came to the rescue and mailed me a set of hardware that was quite similar to the missing one. Jessica, from Paint in My Hair, owns a boutique in Spokane, Washington where she sells her refinished pieces and, get this, she also holds monthly painting classes where she teaches locals the ins and outs of refinishing. Thank you, Jessica!
