What I did on July 4th

We decided to stay home and my granddaughter came over to help me paint furniture, have dinner and celebrate the 4th.

It was a beautiful sunny day here in Southern California. One of my friends gave me a small dining room table that I will use in my studio. Of course, it has to be painted.

We started painting it white but thought a little color would be nice so we choose a color I had handy, yellow. It looks great, love it. I might modge podge bits and pieces of collage on top have to wait and see how I feel about it when it gets UPSTAIRS.

I also painted a book case I picked up at a local thrift store. I love the look of the two new pieces and soon they will be in their new home.

It was a fun day...........maybe my granddaughter will come back and help me paint shelves??????????
