Upcycled Table and Some New Signs

Wouldn't it be really cool if I could have some creative titles for my posts?  I agree.  It would be really cool.  Unfortunately, my creative juices do not flow in that direction very often...hence the plain ol' title.

I finally did it...I gave in to the peer pressure.  I joined Pinterest.  Hopefully, I don't give in to the addiction that I hear it causes.  Either way, I'm moving forward with the times.  

Today was pretty productive.  I ran this morning, worked at the base Thrift Shop most of the day, and worked in the garage for the rest of the afternoon and evening (I'm tackling my own dining room table).  I really want a harvest table, but we've sold all the one's that the hubby has made and now he's too booked to fit me into the upcoming schedule. :(  Well, he's fitting me in, just not taking many building requests!  Now, this evening, the little puppy and I are working at cleaning up my office.  I should probably say I'm working on cleaning it and he's shedding his hair behind me, thus negating my efforts.

Speaking of's a recent project that required basically no effort.  It was an old sewing machine base and a piece of butcher block.  I screwed the butcher block onto the base from the underside.  Easy project? Check.  Fast project? Check. Super cute table? Check.  Winner in my books!  Winner winner chicken dinner!

 Also, here's a quick picture of some new signs now available in my booth at Smith's.  I just got these down there yesterday.  That was after I fought all of the Memorial Day traffic to get there...ugh!  Oh well, hopefully they will be a big hit and it will all be worth it.
