I felt like a bobble head in a too-big helmet!
Okay, so this time I found the dresser on Craigslist, even though my Tennessee family likes Local Sales Network better. Samuel went with me to help pick it up and buy paint. Want to see Samuel too? He is a cute little reserve marine boy.
Who sleeps with Funyuns! I'm sorry Samuel, I couldn't resist! I couldn't have grabbed the desk and gotten supplies without him!
I only snapped a quick picture of everything with my phone, I've had no real camera access (and no photoshop). Here is what it looked like in the back of a truck..
Here is what it looks like with my little daddy helping me scuff it up a bit.
And here is what it looks like with two coats of primer, two coats of Valspar (Drumskin), and a Valspar antiquing glaze.
I just mostly like the cows in the background.
My mother's birthday happened to happen while I was there. I think she liked her little flag quilt!
I also hung out while my sister Martha and my mom made salsa (and canned it).
I contributed by my presence alone.
I also got to see my gorgeous nephew Austin and his parents, my brother Benjamin, and SIL Amber.
I love Tennessee!
Found all of this on a walk with my mom. And blackberries too!
Martha brought corn as a payment for canning help!
