King Me

 I guess I could have called this post "Checkmate" instead of "King Me", but I never really learned chess, checkers was more my game.  I found this little table last year at a garage sale for $2.00.  I mean who can pass that up!  It had one broken leg, but nothing my hubby couldn't fix.  It was also missing the inserted top piece, someone had thrown a peel and stick vinyl square in there, thank goodness not stuck yet.  Originally I wanted to paint this yellow and transfer The Graphic Fairy French Bee in the center.  I still think that would have been cute, but I decided to go natural instead.

Lenora's Sonora

   You know how one thing leads to another, and pretty soon you've remodeled your whole house?  Well that's what happened to my brother-in-law and his wife Lenora.  It started with wanting to put in a wood stove, well then you have to have a hearth, then the walls look a little drab so now you paint the whole house (different great colors), and now the decor is all wrong...well you get it.  In the midst of all this, they moved around some of their furniture and her Sonora phonograph didn't fit where it was anymore.  Lenora asked if I wanted it, and as great as it is (now!) I just don't have room for it.  I could tell she really didn't want to part with it so I said "how about if I fix it up to match your piano so you can put it next to it?"
