My meteorologist husband let me know the weather was going to be good for the first three days of this week–sunny and in the 60’s. Otherwise it has been cold here in the high desert–40-50s, sometimes windy, sometimes cloudy. Brrrrrr.
When we heard the weather report, my sister and I took full advantage of these sweet warm days and started on some of my to-do list projects. The first was our dining room table. I loved the table top, but I hated the legs. I don’t even have a picture of them, I hated them so much.
So, today we put new legs on the old table top. (Actually, the first job was sanding. So much sanding. And removing the old legs, but that was weeks ago during another warm spell.)
This is where I finished with the table today. I love it so much. On Tuesday, I’ll polyurethane it.
We’re also making two benches for storage and to use at the dining room table. The leaves from the old table will be the lids to a storage compartment and the seats. They are still a work in progress, as you can see.
We have another half day of good weather forecasted. Then the winds pick up and snow is coming Tuesday night. We’re starting early this morning. Will we finish?
