Do you get side-tracked easily? I do.

I'm not sure exactly what my plan was for yesterday but it wasn't painting! For some reason I walked by the bench in the entry and decided it was time to paint it, so I plopped it on top of the table. The poor bench has been used and abused. Besides surviving the boys, it went to live with baby boy when he was in college. When he moved to an apartment that was too small the bench went to live with some of his friends. When we rescued the poor bench it had been living out on their balcony.

I didn't do any real 'prep-work' on it but I had stuck some wood filler in a deep gouge on the top (you can see it on the right side). Other than that, I wiped it down and grabbed the ASCP.

Now it matches the table! Of course it doesn't live with the table

Most of the time it lives in the entry. (unless we need it for company)

It is raining and dreary today. We do need the rain but the dogs don't like to go out in the rain. What do the dogs do on rainy days?

They hide. Yes, there are two dogs somewhere in there.

Hope you have a great weekend!

You get so many things done! I love the bench under that hook thingy. Love the quilt on there too.

I have a funny feeling my earlier comment went MIA! I just wanted you to know that that was great rescue work indeed... and I also spied a quilt of sorts. Can't see very much so not sure if you have shared before but I am loving the colors :-)

Well, your sidetrackedness got a lot done! I love the little bench and it does look good with your hook board.
Thanks for popping in to see me. Oh, I remember little Donny singing Puppy Love too! He was so young, cute and still is! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh yeah, I get sidetracked easy, too! If I walk in a room and see something, I'll stop and decide to do something entirely different than what was intended...just like you. I have to make myself stop and tell myself...not right now! Otherwise, whatever else it was I had intended on doing will never get done! LOL
Your babies must be very tiny to be able to hide that well. I think I can see a bit of one but the other one? Nope, not a hair. ;)
