Even better than a yard sale-can this be true? Last week, my son told me that a neighbor around the corner had a table out at the curb. Last year, this same neighbor had tossed ot a lovely wrought iron side table with a woven look top and ivy detail. I asked my husband and son to drive by and see what they thought....They didn't have to think...they loaded that table in the car pronto!! I could not believe it! The top is glass-completely perfect. There is rust on the center piece, but not even that bad! It weighs a ton! Can't wait to work on this beauty. I feel so lucky! But this gets better if you can believe it!
Mother's Day/ Husband's birthday...we always seem to share the day, or at least they are always the same weekend. So we were pretty busy, cooking, preparing, entertaining, when my same 15 year old son said he saw a bench around the corner. Well, I was not able to run off and see- so I said that maybe we could look tomorrow. Not thinking.
Next thing I know, my daughter says to come out front. Ok, drop everything...wipe hands...go outside. No way.....my son is coming up the driveway with the bench. This bench... which also weighs a ton!
It is in the garage because I am afraid these people will say "What were we thinking?" No, really, I just can't wait to get working on it and it is in the "spraying place". If the table is a ton...this is two tons. My son (football, shotput, 6'1'' 15yrs. old-but still my baby) said he had to put it down once on the way! Does my boy know me, or what? So, he said "Happy Mother's Day". Too much!
Thanks to those who have given me some tips, I am finally writing...I will have more questions for you! But, I would also take tips on what to do with these beautiful pieces, if you have a vision. My thought is Rustoleum white, but am open to suggestions!
I think I dreamt of them last night!
