More Work on my Table!

GOOD AFTERNOON!! Aren't these roses beautiful? John went to the store Saturday before Sarah and I ventured out for dress shopping. He gave us each a different color dozen roses. We divided them and each got a beautiful bouquet. They really do lift one's spirits on a dreary winter day!! This is Jody and Tiffany, sisters who live up the street. They often come to visit and make crafts, play with the cats or just visit. I invited them to help me decoupage the top of my work table in the studio. I used pictures and drawings the grand daughters have made plus doily hearts and victorian scrap flowers, etc.

They really got into it. That also shows you how sturdy this table is. John and I were both up on the table together putting the final screws and nails in. No one fell through! HA
I decoupaged the first two coats and now am in the process of applying liquid acrylic.....you know how some western theme restaurants have on their wood tables? I need a few more boxes and I will be done with it.
I am going to have John take me to the store tonite and get some so I can maybe finish it. I have to wait several days for it to dry hard enough before I can put things on top of the table top!!
In the meantime I am sorting and labelling containers. John also bought me a cabinet and shelf unit that sits on top of it. When it is all assembled I will show you what that looks like as well.
still snowing in Spokane..................but this morning it was actually melting some.

Here's MY question: Does John have an unmarried brother just like him - one who wouldn't mind a 57-year-old, really plain, rather round Comanche? LOL! Just teasing - that was my way of saying he sounds like a 100% KEEPER! That's a great table, Catie! And what sweet visitors you have!

Beautiful roses Catie! Those girls sure look like they are having a ball! You are so luck to have some young ladies in the neighborhood to come and visit. We do get the little fella next door who is a treat, but some girls would be nice once in a while!
